    Kimchi Grilled Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

    This kimchi grilled cheese breakfast sandwich with sesame seed crust is everything your taste buds have been craving… A few weeks ago, I was craving bibimbap, a traditional Korean dish that features meat, vegetables, and a fried egg over a bowl of white rice.

Later, Half Baked Harvest had posted a kimchi grilled cheese recipe on her blog. It sounded so good; I wanted to make…
