INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/390°F. 

STEP 2

Combine the mayonnaise, gochujang and sesame seeds in a small bowl. 

STEP 3

Spread one side of each piece of bread with the mayonnaise mixture. Turn the pieces over so that the mayonnaise sides are facing down. 

STEP 4

Combine the cheese, garlic and herbs in a large bowl. 

STEP 5

Pile a layer of the cheese mixture onto 2 slices of bread. Top the cheese with the kimchi. Then add the finely quarter of cheese on top of the kimchi. 

STEP 6

Use a spatula to transfer the sandwiches to a cold frying pan (preferably one that can go into the oven). Turn the heat to medium-high and cook until the pan is warm and the first side starts to sizzle. Cook until golden, then flip the sandwiches and cook for another 2 minutes. Then place into the oven for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted through the centre (transfer the sandwiches to oven trays if your frying pan is not oven-proof).
