When I saw this Fried Egg Kim Chi Sandwich with Bacon on Tasting Table, I knew I had to come up with a vegetarian version. Kim Chi and a fried egg on bread? What’s not to love? Of course, the bacon provides smokiness, so how to do that in a veg makeover? We were getting ready to try the smoked cheeses, so the natural answer was a strong smoked cheddar. We simply layered a slice of that cheddar, a fried egg and strong kim chi on whole grain bread and fried it in a pan until it was melty.
Sublime! The original recipe included a tart mayonnaise. A bit of mayo mixed with lemon zest would be good, if you want to gild the lilly.
