Kimchi grilled cheese sandwich

This is inspired by the Eighth Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational in Los Angeles, Calif. I can’t make it down there to participate officially, but I can compete in spirit.

The Kama Sutra

The Kama Sutra sammich is any grilled cheese that is made with exotic bread or contains any other ingredients than the above mentioned.

The only rules to the Kama Sutra sammich are as follows: The sammich MUST be grilled and the internal ingredients must be at least 60% CHEESE. Other than that, this is a freestyle category, so go for it. This is where you can create any savory flavor concept your twisted mind will allow, so long as the internal ingredients are at least 60% cheese.
The Kama Sutra category is not only the most liberal, but also the most popular. So you must keep in mind that the competition is fierce and you could be up against the largest block of competitors, so you better get it right!

It is in this spirit that I submit the following recipe:

  1. Thanks, Tammy; I can’t believe I’ve never tried this before. I’m past due for lunch right now, and this picture is killing me. By the way, my boyfriend and I went to the Grilled Cheese Invitational last year and the line to get in was out of control, much like the recent Street Food Fest, which shows an obvious desire for more of these kinds of events and a need to revamp the system. One of my friends was in line for over two hours, then they shut the line down just as she was about to get in!

  2. I’m not surprised that this kind of festival would be popular. Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of those classic American comfort foods. It’s also not surprising that people can and do come up with wacky, fun versions of the original as well. : )
