Egg-and-Kimchi Rice Bowls

It's time to put the yolk back in dinner! Research has shown that the cholesterol in eggs may have a limited effect on total body cholesterol, making whole eggs a great part of a balanced diet. For maximum flavor factor, break the yolk and mix it with the rice just before eating; its richness goes nicely with the spicy-vinegary kimchi sauce.

2 cups kimchi

1/3 cup rice wine vinegar

6 cups cooked brown rice

Kosher salt

4 strips bacon

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

4 large eggs

1 avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced

2 scallions, sliced

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil


  1. Combine the kimchi, vinegar and 1/2 cup water in a blender and process until very smooth.
  2. Toss the rice, half of the kimchi sauce and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl. Cover and microwave until hot, stirring halfway through, about 4 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned and crispy, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and then roughly chop.
  4. Wipe out the skillet the bacon cooked in. Add the vegetable oil and place it over medium-high heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet and sprinkle each with a little salt. Cook until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  5. Divide the hot rice among 4 bowls. Top each with an egg, avocado, bacon, the remaining kimchi sauce and scallion. Drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil.
