Ingredients

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided, plus more as needed

2 slices rustic bread (about 1 inch thick)

3 large eggs

flaky sea salt, preferably Maldon brand

2 ounces kimchi

2 ounces silken tofu

1 scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced on a bias

Directions

  1. In a skillet over medium-low heat, add 1 tablespoon butter. When melted and foamy, add bread slices in an even layer. Toast until golden, about 1 minute, then flip and toast the other side, another minute. Add more butter as needed for both sides to turn golden brown and toasty. Set aside.
  2. Crack eggs into a small saucepan. Over medium heat, use a rubber spatula to stir and scramble the eggs; add 1 tablespoon butter and a pinch of salt. Continue stirring vigorously; once the butter has melted and the eggs start to set, keep stirring while moving the pan on and off the heat at intervals. (This is the secret to creamy, tender scrambled eggs.) Remove from heat just before the eggs are fully cooked, and stir in remaining tablespoon of butter. Fold in the kimchi and tofu and stir well to combine.
  3. Place toasted bread on a serving plate and top with kimchi scrambled eggs. Garnish with scallions and serve immediately.
