Oatmeal: Love it or Hate it? Oatmeal With Kimchi & Fried Egg

Oatmeal: Love it or Hate it? Personally, I'm not a huge fan...well, unless it's loaded with sweet things like dark chocolate chunks, toasted pecans, dried cherries, etc. But then I might as well eat dessert, right?

Wrong! There is another way to eat a bowl of oatmeal: a savory way! Remember the savory oatmeal with leeks, ginger, and an egg I made a while back? Well, this is its cousin: Oatmeal With Kimchi & Fried Egg.

Oatmeal With Kimchi & Fried Egg
Serves 1

1 cup cooked oatmeal
1/4-1/3 cup kimchi
1 fried egg
1 scallion, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds 

Yes, just FIVE ingredients make this gorgeous and flavorful breakfast!

Directions {not that you need them!}

1. In a bowl, add oatmeal.
2. Top with kimchi, fried egg, scallions and sesame seeds.
3. For extra flavor, add a bit of the liquid from the kimchi.

Dig in!!!

Have you made savory oatmeal before? What do you put into yours?

I've made an oatmeal taco, as a dinner. It was quite delicious! I would definitely like to try this recipe too!

I really love a savory oatmeal with a runny egg on top. The kimchi is right up my alley!

Now that's an interesting twist on oatmeal Olga... not entirely sure if I would like it as I am still undecided on kimchi in the first place... ;) But if looks are anything to go by it looks wonderful!

This is brilliant! I usually stick to my usual oatmeal, banana and honey but I will definitely give this a try. I'm glad I came across your blog! :)

Thank you! Please let me know what you think once you make the recipe! said...

I just saw your kimchi oatmeal recipe while eating Sriracha Oatmeal, from Huffington Post's list of great oatmeal recipes. Your recipe looks amazing, and while I am really enjoying my Sriracha oats, yours look even better. Thanks for sharing!!

You've just made my day! Thank you!!!
I also have a recipe for kimchi grilled cheese on the blog! For some reason the search functionality isn't working, but here's a link:

Wow I am a native Korean who have been living in Seoul for several decades. Even though I have tons of homemade kimchi in my refrigerator I even think about making oatmeal with Kimchi. You inspire me a lot. Thank you so much!
By the way, have you ever tried this with sautéed kimchi ? I think it is going to be great. Because when we make a kimchi porridge in Korea , we usually sauté it with various food including tuna , pork or beacon. Also you can put some sesame oil, too.
Bon appetite!

I've never tried oatmeal with sautéed kimchi, but it makes perfect sense because that's what I do with fried rice and kimchi ;)
