A flavorful mountain of tangy kimchi, aromatic Jasmine White Rice, and crispy bacon – topped with fluffy eggs and gooey mozzarella – will give you the energy you need to take on whatever the day has in store for you!
In large skillet set over medium heat, cook bacon, turning once, for 5 to 8 mins or until browned and crispy. Using slotted spoon, remove bacon from pan and set aside. Reserve 1 tbsp drippings in small bowl; set aside.
Wipe out skillet with paper towel. In same skillet, heat reserved drippings; add rice, kimchi, green onions, gochujang and soy sauce. Cook for 8 to 10 mins or well combined and heated through. Transfer rice mixture to bowl, patting down with back of spoon.
Add oil to separate skillet; invert rice into skillet. Using handle of wooden spoon, create indent in top of rice mound. Press handle of spoon into side of rice to create a trail in the “volcano”.
In small bowl, whisk together eggs and cheese; pour into indent on top of rice, allowing mixture to flow down trail in side of “volcano” and into skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3 to 5 mins or until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked.
Add diced chicken, shrimp or beef to the rice for added protein.
Garnish rice with green onions and/or sesame seeds if desired.

A popular fermented chili paste, gochujang is a Korean sauce that is both sweet and savory. Containing an array of chilies, it brings just the right amount of heat.
As it’s a mainstay in many dishes – like this satisfying Bibimbap Rice Bowl or these irresistible Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps – and pairs with almost anything, this condiment can be found at any Asian market and likely in the international food section of your local grocery store. However, you do have a couple options in terms of substitutions:
– While sriracha is sweet and brings the heat, it has a thinner consistency and will alter the flavor of the dish.
– Though it has a pronounced garlic flavor, Thai chili paste has a similar texture. If a recipe requires a thicker sauce, select this substitute.
– Sambal oelek consists of hot red peppers so it’ll make your dish spicier. Like sriracha, it’s a thinner sauce; you may want to add a bit of rice flour or cornstarch if you want to get a consistency more similar to gochujang.
