For the bacon (see recipe note below):

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon gochugaru
  • 1 slice bacon

For the kimchi mayo:

  • 1 tablespoon chopped kimchi
  • 1 tablespoon mayo

For the sandwich:

  • 1 brioche bun
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice spicy sweet bacon
  • 2 tablespoons kimchi mayo
  • 1/4 avocado
  • handful mixed greens or lettuce
  • 5-6 slices green onion


To prepare the ingredients:

  • Lay the bacon out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and gochugaru, and bake. You can prepare the bacon in advance, and reheat it in the frying pan when you’re ready to make your sandwich.
  • Make the kimchi mayo by finely chopping the kimchi and stirring it into the mayo. This can also be done well in advance.
  • Slice the green onions, prep the greens, and get your avocado ready.

When you’re ready to make the sandwich:

  • Fry the egg on one side, then flip it (over-easy-style). I like to poke a hole in the top of the egg so the yolk doesn’t explode when you bite into it. (More on that later).
  • While the egg is frying, toast the bun by cutting it open and placing it cut-side-down into the pan and letting it get lightly brown.
  • Reheat the bacon in the pan if needed.
  • Spread kimchi mayo on both sides of the toasted bun
  • Lay ¼ of an avocado (sliced or smushed) on the bottom bun
  • Add the egg, then the bacon, then top with the greens and green onions.



I'm giving you the quantities to make ONE slice of bacon and ONE sandwich worth of kimchi mayo. Obviously, you will likely want to make more than that, but I thought the easiest way to explain it would be to base it on one sandwich. I tend to make about 6 slices of this bacon at a time and freeze it if I don't go through it all within a few days.
