  • 2 tsps. sugar
  • 1-2 cups of cheddar cheese, shredded

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Cut the potatoes into fries and place on a baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil, Korean chili powder (or paprika), and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, flipping fries over once or twice while cooking. Meanwhile, prep your toppings.
  • In a pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  • Spread the kimchi mixture over that, and then top with the last of the cheese.
  • Broil for 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted. Garnish with scallions.
  • Enjoy!


*Instead of using bacon and bacon fat, you can use a tablespoon of oil and tofu or another meat substitute seasoned with the Korean chili powder for a vegetarian dish.
