Kimchi Gratin, Kimchi Casserole or baked Kimchi rice????

I liked the movie, "Julie vs Julia".
It is a true story about a woman named of Julie challenged all the recipes of Julia Child's first book in one year and blogged the process. 

My blue eyed husband suggested that I should challenge making different types of Kimchi everyday for one year and blog about it. 
I still don't know if he was serious or joking.

Well, for his sake, I am not making Kimchi everyday nor every week. 
But..,  I can come up with 365 Kimchi ideas though.
There are so many dishes you can make with Kimchi, not only to authentic Korean dishes but also to fuse with other cuisines as well. Possibilities are limitless and creativity is all you need.

Here is one dish that I really love.., but can't decide what to name it.
Kimchi gratin? Kimchi casserole? or maybe baked Kimchi rice?
I will let you name whatever that sounds good to you.

Kimchi goes so-so-so well with cheese, especially with the cheeses of Mediterranean.
I used feta, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and mixed with Kimchi fried rice, and baked in the oven.
You can add some minced pork or chicken, ham, or sausage to add protein if you desire.

It is very delicious and comforting. Serve as a side dish or as a main with some salad on the side.
Who knows? This might be the next hot thing in the food trend.

10 oz (300g) fermented kimchi, chopped
1/3 lb (150g) minced pork, optional
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tablespoon grape seed or canola oil
4 cups cooked short grain rice
2 tablespoon kimchi juice
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 green onion, thinly sliced

Let's get to work:

Here is the last piece of cabbage kimchi in my fridge. Quite fermented.., perfect for this recipe!

Shake her up gently over the sink to get rid of some stuffing inside.
Need to feed to those who can't handle the spiciness? Give a little rinse with water to get rid of some chili factor.

Chop into small pieces.

Drizzle a little oil in the skillet over medium heat.

Saute chopped onion and some garlic for 2 minutes.

NOTE : Add some minced pork at this point to make a complete one dish meal if you wish.

Add the chopped kimchi and continue to cook until it gets tender, about 5 minutes.

Add rice and toss together until well combined.

And a little kimchi juice,

sesame seeds, and toss well. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside to cool down  a little.

Meanwhile, break apart your feta cheese into small chunks.

Grate mozzarella and Parmesan cheese...

 Add half the amount of cheeses to the kimchi rice mixture and toss all together.

Now, get a pretty baking dish, about 9"x13", and grease with oil spray.

 Put the mixture in the dish and spread the rest of the cheeses on top.

Bake in the preheated oven at 350º F (160º C) for about 20 minutes or so until cheese melts and
creates golden crust.

 Here! They just came out of oven.

 Sprinkle some sliced green onion on top for the look.

 and dig in when it's still hot.
You might find yourself falling in love with cabbage all over again.
Why? Because it is sooooooo dang good!

Maybe I should call it "Kimcheese Casserole".
How does that sounds?

Wow, that casserole looks so interesting. I love kimchee. I like how you included so many photos of the process. I can't wait to try this.

I love this idea - kind of like a korean take on the traditional chicken & rice casserole.

Anything with cheese this much is really calling out for me. I love this recipe. Wanna try tonight...

Love how you made a Korean dish into a casserole - something Koreans would never do because they don't use the oven! My mom put her pots and pans in there.

I really cannot wait to give this a try. I'm sure I will love it!

Thanks for sharing!

 Ha ha! I had to laugh a little when I read your mom stores pots and pans in the oven. You are right, oven is not usual thing in the Korean cooking, but these days, many Korean home cooks use their oven to create fusion dishes.

This is such an awesome coincidence! I have been making more and more kimchi dishes lately (quite a few inspired by Kevin from Closet Cooking!) and I was actually looking for a "kimchi casserole" recipe, but hadn't found one I liked. I subscribed to you on Google Reader and now here it is! I can't wait to prepare this! It looks delicious and it is exactly what I had in mind, but now I don't have to experiment. ;) (Also I recently wrote a post about kimchi, but my blog is a personal blog and not a cooking blog!) I know I will be spending a lot of time here! Thanks!

Such an inventive recipe!  Love the flavors - I think I'd call this a gratin, but I bet however you name it, you'll call it delicious!

I have a shocking confession - I've never made kimchi!  Weird, because I like it - just have never made it.  Reading your blog is an inspiration, though, so I'll be making it later this year.   Anyway, thanks for this.

Hope you can give it a try to make Kimchi. It requires some work, but lots of fun as well.
Thanks always for your uplifting comments.

Oh hey, I've made something like this before! I used bacon and added some dried cranberries. It was inspired by a similar dish I ate in Korea. I think it was called kimchi doria! :-)

nice recipe , the step by step procedure is surely clear.
thanks for the great explanation..

Hmmm.., cranberries sounds very interesting. I've never had Kimchi doria but I am sure many Koreans enjoy their kimchi with cheese. Thanks.

OMG, this sounds like it would go straight to my heart! As a favorite comfort food that is!!!! Great post hon. Love your blog and you've almost convinced me I CAN make homemade kimchee that won't wipe out my whole family.

Hi Holly! I'm guessing it doesn't, but does dairy bother your stomach at all? My mom and I can hardly eat cheese or drink milk or anything like that without getting very upset stomachs.

Not at all. You and your mother must be Lactose intolerant. I am lucky to have an iron stomach.

I made this yesterday with Kimchi from your blog and the few changes I made was to up the garlic to 4 and I used Gruyere rather than Feta as that is what I had on hand. It was really delicious. Thanks for sharing!

Gruyere is great. I am sure it made the casserole more cheesy. Happy to hear that you liked the dish.
