Just in case you were looking for another way to use your waffle iron and kimchi, try this quick and divine kimchi grilled cheese sandwich found on TasteSpotting, with a caption that reads “No panini grill? No problem!”. We tried this with what we had on hand- just a bit of dijon instead of oriental mustard, and no cilantro, and it was still SO GOOD. Plus, the prep was easy and it’s nice to not have to turn the oven on to cook during the summer Enjoy!
Here’s the full recipe from No Face Plate:
Kimchi Grilled Cheese
two slices sourdough bread
1 tablespoon prepared oriental mustard
1/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese, sli ced thin
1/2 cup homemade kimchi, chopped
cilantro, minced (optional)
Easiest recipe ever to appear on NFP, this one: spray your iron and let it warm (mine has a little light that shines “ready!” when it’s hot to trot). Spread mustard over both slices of bread. Layer cheese on one slice, scatter kimchi over the top, scatter cilantro over kimchi, place the other slice of mustarded bread atop. Press down to seal the fillings in place, then put carefully in the middle of the waffle iron. Close it as far as it will go, and use something heavy and non-flammable to keep the pressure on.
