Instructions

1
Let’s make Kimchi Bacon Frico Fried Rice. It’s an experimental spin on Kimchi Bokkeumbap using Shredded Mozzarella to get a crispy Frico Edge.
2
Let’s make the Seasoning Sauce. Strain Kimchi to yield 1/4 Cup Kimchi Juice. Add 1 Tbsp Gochujang 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce and 1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Seed Oil. Mix.
3
Set a frying pan to Medium Heat. Once hot, add 2 Slices Thick Cut Bacon (Diced) Render the fat until pan is coated. Move Bacon to one side.
4
Add 2 Cups Kimchi (Chopped) to the pan and mix well to coat each piece in bacon fat. Once it browns lightly mix with bacon and move to the side of the pan.
5
Add 1/2 Medium Onion (Thinly Sliced) with 1/4 Cup Scallion Whites (Diced) and 1/8 Cup Scallion Greens (Julienned). Sauté before adding 3 Cloves Garlic (Sliced)
6
Once aromatics are browned, push them to the edges of the pan and add 2 Tbsp Butter in the center. Once melted add 2 Cups Short Grain Rice (Day Old).
7
Press on the rice firmly with a spatula to break it apart carefully without sending rice flying. Try to mix it thoroughly with everything else in the pan.
8
Pour your Seasoning Sauce over the rice and mix thoroughly. The liquid should help deglaze the pan so you can scrape any stuck bits off of the bottom.
9
To a pre-heated greased 1/8 Sheet Pan add 1/4 Cup Mozarella (Shredded) to the edges. Add Fried Rice. Fill in edges with another 1/4 Cup Mozzarella (Shredded).
10
Throw the 1/8 Sheet Pan into a pre-heated 500 degree oven for 20 Minutes or until the top turns brown and the edges start to darken.
11
Take 1 Sheet Gim and pass it over a burner set to Medium Heat until it wrinkles. Cut into 2” sections before cutting again into thin strips with scissors.
12
Take the pan out of the oven and use a spoon to create three dimples. Place 3 Large Eggs into the dimples.
13
Throw the pan back into the oven for another 10 Minutes or until the whites on the eggs are set.
14
Loosten the edges gently before cutting into thirds. Use a fish spatula to carefully remove a piece and plate.
15
Garnish with the thin strips of Gim, 1/8 Cup Scallion Greens (Diced) and a 1 Pinch Toasted Sesame Seeds. Enjoy!
