Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • 3 nori sheets (dried seaweed)
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into ½ inch crosswise
  • 3 cups kimchi, drained (reserving liquid)
  • 4½ to 5 cups cooked medium-grain white rice, chilled
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • 4 fried eggs (optional)
  1. Cut the nori sheets in half with shears, and then cut into ½-inch-thick strips. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and stir-fry until almost cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove bacon fat leaving about 2 tablespoons in the pan with the browned bacons.
  3. Increase the heat to high, add kimchi and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add the rice, the reserved kimchi liquid, sesame oil and half of the nori strips. Stir, turning and flattening the rice for 2-3 minutes or until mixture are well combined.
  5. Transfer the fried rice to a serving dish. Sprinkle with the remaining nori strips and the sesame seeds. Serve with fried egg, if desired.
