Preserves in Action: Open Faced Kimchi & Egg Sandwich

October 10, 2014(updated on October 18, 2023)
Half a bagel, fried egg, kimchi.

Late last week, I came down with a cold. At first, I tried to pretend it wasn’t happening, but it was not to be ignored. And so I spent the last five days in a bit of a haze, doing only the things that absolutely had to be done. I taught my classes and did the demos I’d committed to doing, but I skipped all extras, including grocery shopping.

Today was the first day that I felt anywhere near normal. I woke up ravenous and headed to the fridge, hoping for something fresh and delicious. Instead, I found a number of weird odds and ends, and no fresh vegetables whatsoever.

There was slightly stale half a bagel, a few eggs, and some end of a jar of the most delicious kimchi ever (it was from the July food swap and was so darn good). And so, I toasted the bagel and spread all the kimchi goodness into it (probiotics!). A single fried egg went on top. And it was delicious.

Eggs and kimchi. Make sure to try it.

  • I’ve been in a similar boat, and this is the first day in a week that I’ve really felt up to anything… Egg on a bagel sounds just what the doctor ordered! Too bad there’s no kimchi here…

  • I have the same kimchi in my fridge from the July swap! I wish I had the recipe that she uses to try and duplicate it. All the kimchi we’ve made since doesn’t compare! I have a bit of a cold as well so I’m trying this for breakfast, it sounds amazing.

  • Come back to Portland Oregon and you can have Kimchi and a fried egg from the food cart, Kim Jong Gillin. He does a great Bibim Box that has both plus noodles, rice, veggies and your choice of grilled meat. It’s FAB!
