2 slices white sandwich bread

1/2 cup grated Cheddar

1/4 cup kimchi, drained and roughly chopped

2 tablespoons mayonnaise


  1. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Top 1 slice of bread with 1/4 cup of the cheese, kimchi, the remaining 1/4 cup cheese and then the other slice of bread. Spread 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise over the top slice. Place in the skillet, mayonnaise-side down, and cook for 3 minutes, pressing slightly to flatten. Spread the remaining tablespoon mayonnaise on the top slice of bread, flip and cook until golden, another 3 minutes. Quarter the sandwich and serve.
