Bacon sandwich recipe - Korean style!

If there’s one thing better than a bacon sandwich, then it’s a bacon sandwich with chilli. Gochujang is a great way to spice up plain old tomato ketchup – slather it on buttered bread, and make a bacon butty which will really blow away the cobwebs, and kick start your day.

We’ve developed quite a taste for the Korean chilli paste in the office, so we’ve gone for a 1:2 ratio of gochujang to tomato ketchup. But if you want something a little less punchy, then ease up on the gochujang, and experiment until you’ve mixed a balanced sauce that suits your taste.

Ingredients Serves: 2

  • 4 slices of buttered bread
  • 6-8 rashers of bacon
  • 30g tomato ketchup
  • 15g gochujang


  1. Fry the bacon.
  2. Mix together the tomato ketchup and gochujang, and then slather on buttered bread.
  3. Arrange the rashers of bacon on one of the slices of bread, and place the other slice on top.
