How To Make Korean-inspired Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 jumbo egg
- 1 pinch cilantro
- 1⁄2 cup cabbage kimchi
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried chipotle powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Korean red chile seasoning
- 2 slices bread (Your Favorite)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons chimichurri sauce (recipe below)
- 3 slices thick-cut bacon
- canola non stick cooking spray
FOR THE CHIMICHURRI
- 1 1⁄2 cups Italian parsley, packed
- 1⁄2 cup cilantro
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup fresh basil
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cumin, Ground
- 3⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
In a small bowl, combine the bacon slices, Korean Chile Seasoning, and Chipotle Seasoning.
Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat and fry the seasoned bacon for about 3 minutes on each side until it becomes jerky-like and slightly crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and set it aside.
Take your bread slices and spread a tablespoon of butter on each side. Toast them to a golden brown either in a sauté pan or toaster oven. Set the toasted bread aside.
Fry up your egg. Spray your sauté pan with non-stick spray and heat it over medium-high heat. Crack the eggs into the pan and immediately turn the heat down to low. Allow the eggs to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, aiming for a runny yolk for a sunny-side-up or over-easy egg. Remove the eggs from the pan and set them aside.
Now, let’s start building your sandwich! Take one side of the toasted bread and place it on a plate. Add a layer of Kimchi on the bottom, then fold the bacon in half and add it on top of the Kimchi. Finally, place your freshly fried and runny egg on the sandwich.
In a blender, combine Basil, Parsley, and Cilantro after washing, picking, and cleaning them. Puree the ingredients on high until they are completely combined. Taste to ensure the seasoning is correct. Transfer the Chimichurri sauce to a container or squeeze bottle, and you can use it right away or refrigerate for later.
Finally, drizzle the Chimichurri sauce over your sandwich and garnish with cilantro. Your delicious creation is now ready to be enjoyed!
