Kimchi fried rice with breakfast sausage – kimchi bokumbap

kimchi fried rice

This twist on traditional fried rice tastes delicious.  The classic breakfast combination of sausage and egg added to fried kimchi and nutty rice will have you going back for more. With a nice kick of heat, it is sure to be a favourite!

My yobo loves kimchi bokumbap.  I think most Koreans do; I have yet to find one that doesn’t.  The simplest recipe can be made with just kimchi and left over rice but this recipe had my husband licking the bowl!

This week has been busy with Halloween. The kids love to make their own costumes, which the teacher in me is very proud of, but the working mom in me finds frustrating.  We have a huge dress up bin and it would be wonderful if they just picked one out of there.  But no, they had their ideas and were ready to go.  So between working during the day, a last minute run to the dollar store for supplies, helping the kids with the costumes, I was happy we had left overs for dinner.  I made this recipe the night before the chaos!

Here are my kidlets and their costumes. Of course, in the middle of it all, I never got to taking pictures of the costumes until the end of the festivities on Halloween.  And one thing to be said about homemade costumes is that they don’t last very long! 🙂

Kyah and Jaina were Christmas presents (they did have shoulder straps at one point!)

Taron was a Roman soldier with a homemade sword and shield. Nyles wore this cute frog costume for a total of 42 seconds.

    • Thanks… it is delicious! I use to work downtown and loved Jangmo jib on Robson street. I haven’t gone in a few years though. Sounds like a good reason for a date night! 😉

Love to hear what you think!
