Toasting the Gorgon
Peanut butter, kimchee and Gorgonzola sandwich? It’s simply delicious! This super umami bomb is called the Gorgon, a toasted sandwich made with creamy peanut butter with a drizzle of honey, Napa cabbage kimchee, sweet Gorgonzola cheese and scallions. Much as with the creature of Greek mythology, you’ll be stunned with the first bite. The complex combination of flavors eat like a savory Thai meal in each bite.
I lightly toast my bread first and allow it cool. Then I butter it, top it with stuff and then toast again to get a light crunchy texture. This ensures that the center of the bread slice never becomes soggy. Pre-toasting works also well with grilled sandwiches, especially with softer breads and rolls.
