  1. You can use any cheese as you prefer. You can use shredded cheese as well.
  2. White bread is best for this recipe. But if you prefer healthy option then use brown bread.
  3. Use finely chopped kimchi. Big pieces may fall apart in the sandwich.
  4. Cook the sandwich in cast iron pan for best result.
  5. Use low heat to cook the sandwich, else it will brown outside fast and the cheese won't be properly molten.
