With a stack of these savory, Korean-inspired pancakes on your plate, breakfast-for-dinner has never been more appealing. Bright, crunchy, and a little funky, chopped kimchi livens up the basic batter, while strips of smoky bacon are baked-in to the pancakes while on the griddle.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook bacon, flipping once, until just beginning to crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Whisk together eggs, 1/3 cup water, 2 tablespoons kimchi juice, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil; stir in kimchi, scallions, and flour just to combine.

  • Remove bacon fat from skillet. Add oil; heat over medium. Working in two batches, pour about 1/2 cup batter into skillet for each pancake; top each with 3 pieces of bacon. Cook until just set around edges and undersides are golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes more.

  • Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet lined with a wire rack. Stir together remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 2 tablespoons kimchi juice, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Serve pancakes with bok choy and cucumbers, drizzled with soy mixture.
