Yummy Recipe Wendesday! (Grilled Kimcheese Ramen Sandwich)

Hello fellow foodies and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday.  Today I bring you a recipe that’s probably not going to appeal to just anyone but if you have an adventurous side with food I definitely recommend you give this a try.  Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes using Kimchi and Cheese together and it really is a delicious combination that you wouldn’t think would work together.  Ramen and Grilled Cheese are also a couple of my favorite foods to make when I just want something quick to eat without spending a lot of time in the kitchen so when I found this recipe, I knew right away that I was going to like it.  Most of the time when I eat the cheap Chicken Ramen from the local grocery store, I end up using about half the water and adding a couple slices of American cheese at the end for Cheesy Chicken Ramen so I figured this was going to be awesome, especially with the addition of the Kimchi, and I was not disappointed.  On that note, I do recommend a good quality Ramen for this recipe.  If you have an Asian market in your area – we have several around here – you can find the good stuff there; it’s nearly as cheap as the grocery store Ramen but the flavor is much better.  Even if you’re not a fan of Ramen made the regular way, give this recipe a try and you just might be surprised at how good it actually is.  If you are totally and absolutely against the Ramen in general, omit the Ramen from the recipe and you still have an awesome Grilled Kimcheese Sandwich.  As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter, if you aren’t already, so you don’t miss a single new post.

Grilled Kimcheese Ramen Sandwich

  • 1 pkg Ramen Noodles, any flavor
  • 1 Ramen Seasoning Packet
  • 1 cup Kimchi, chopped and squeezed
  • 1 Tbsp Butter, plus more for the bread slices
  • 4 slices bread, any kind
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese; split

1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil over high heat.
2. Drop the ramen noodles in the boiling water and cook until they are soft, about 4-5 minutes; drain the ramen noodles, add the seasoning packet, toss to combine and set aside.
3. Butter one slice of bread on both sides and set aside; heat one tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat until completely melted.
4. Lay the slice of buttered bread in the skillet and top with ½ cup of the shredded cheddar cheese; cover the skillet with a lid and let the cheese melt almost entirely, about 2 minutes.
5. Remove the lid and top the melted cheese with half of the ramen noodles and about ½ cup of the kimchi (may require less depending on the size of your bread); re-cover for about 1 more minute.
6. Butter both sides of the second slice of bread and place it on top of the kimchi, pressing down gently; carefully flip your sandwich over and continue to cook, uncovered, until the bread is golden brown.
7. Repeat steps 1-6 for your second grilled cheese sandwich. Enjoy!
