This recipe is for "myeongdong" (명동) which is a type of street food sold in Korea.  There are many variations, some quite elaborate.  The one that I am presenting here is a good starter recipe.  It can be cooked very quickly (within a couple of minutes), it's tasty, and very filling.  Good breakfast sandwich, drunk food, or something when you want to impress the wife/gf but don't want to put that much effort into it.

If you make it on a grill, you can assembly-line it and bang out food for the group within minutes.  However, a large skillet will also work.

Heat up your pan to medium-high.  Melt some butter and toast one side of two pieces of bread.  Set aside.

Melt some more butter.  Beat one egg with some roughly-chopped cabbage and pour out onto the pan.

Cover the egg mixture with cheese.  I prefer cheddar, because it compliments the taste of the Spam that I use for the meat.

Now top with meat, sliced as shown.  I prefer Spam, though one could use ham or mystery meat.  Whatever suits you.  I use about 1/4 of a can of Spam, to give you some idea about the quantity.  Slicing it that way allows it to cook faster.

When the agg is browned to your satisfaction, pick up the assembly with a spatula, melt a little more butter, and flip.

While cooking the meat side, you will want to press down with the spatula a few times to compress everything and ensure that the middle is well-cooked.

Flip again and put on the condiments.  The guy in this picture uses mustard and ketchup.  I prefer gochujang, which you can find in the Asian section of your supermarket, or an Asian market; and Sriracha mayo (I make my own by mixing a 1:1 ratio of each).  Whatever you use, if you are applying it with a knife, put it on the bread slices.

Set up your bread slices, untoasted side up.  Pick up the assembly and slide it onto one slice, then cover with the other.

Grasp it firmly in your hand (the sandwich you pervert).  Your nipples should be able to cut glass at this point.  Enjoy.

Thanks for sharing that. @HamsterMuscle   I will give that a try one day.  I'll go with the Sriracha mayo as the condiment (always have Huy Fong brand Sriracha on hand) and substitute the Spam because....

I've used Prem, ham, and various canned mystery-meats.  All have their charms.  I also tried Spam turkey and that worked well; that is another option.  I suppose that cooked chicken might work as well.

I'll post another one when I have time.

Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

visitors can't see pics , please register or login


Ingredients

1/4 cup cooked shredded chicken, warm (I use roasted chicken like you get at Costco)
1 tablespoon hot sauce (Frank's Chicken Wing sauce is ideal)
1/2 tablespoon mayo (optional)
1 tablespoon carrot, grated
1 tablespoon celery, sliced
1 tablespoon green or red onion, sliced or diced
1 tablespoon blue cheese, room temperature, crumbled
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, room temperature, grated
2 slices bread
1 tablespoon butter, room temperature

Directions

1.  Mix the chicken, hot sauce, mayo, carrot, celery and onion in a small bowl.
   
2.  Butter the outside of each slice of bread, sprinkle half of the cheeses on the inside (non-buttered side) of one slice of bread, top with the buffalo chicken salad, the remaining cheese and finally the other slice of bread, butter side out.

3.  Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.

4.  Add the sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.

I saw a video the other day of a guy using mayo instead of butter to make his grilled cheese.

I've seen that being done too.  Not sure how I feel about it.  I think I'll stick with butter.

I've seen some online conversations between grilled cheese sandwich "purists" and others who are more casual.  The purists really get worked up if someone deviates from the Holy Formula of bread and cheese. 

For me, it's kind of like saying that you can only have sex in the missionary position in bed at night with a certain range of pump cycles.  If that's your thing, fine, but I'm inclined to do what pleases me.  Same thing goes for sandwiches.  Both of the recipes above are labeled "grilled cheese" because I find that phrase to have some descriptive value.  But if a purist saw it, I would be burned at the stake.

As to butter or mayo, I feel about mayo like I do about ketchup: if you overdo it, then you mask the taste of the underlying food.  Someone that uses ketchup in place of butter probably just wants to taste mayo, and the sandwich serves as a water cracker for it.

Mayo is interesting. One of the charter fishing captains in Jacksonville is a CIA graduate chef.  He ran restaurant and hotel kitchens until he decided he’d rather be outside on a boat.  Anyway, he frequently uses a thin film of mayo on fish and meats as a way to get the natural oils of the meat to combine with  spices and sauces.  I wonder if mayo would have a similar effect with cheese.
