Kimchi Burgers with Gochujang Mayo and Homemade Hamburger Buns

I love Korean fusion dishes!  My husband Jim and I came up with this recipe and it is a flavor bomb! There is nothing like kimchi, gochujang and sesame oil to pack a major punch to anything you add it to.  I always keep these 3 ingredients on hand.  After my daughter came home from South Korea in 2000 I started experimenting with all those glorious Korean flavors and recipes. This year with our exchange student Nagyeom here from South Korea, it's fun to show her some of my fun fusion dishes along with some traditional recipes as well.  

I originally cooked these burgers out on the grill but now I cook them on my cast iron flat griddle on the stove.  With all the ingredients they can sometimes be fragile but I have learned to make the patties up early in the day and cover them and leave them in the fridge to firm up a bit.  By using the cast iron the kimchi gets all fried and caramelized which equals... yumminess!   Also, I know using the smoked gouda sounds weird but take my word for it you want that smokey, cheesey goodness on this burger! Seriously, you do!

Cast Iron Skillet Parker House Rolls

As you probably have figured out by now.... I'm crazy about Cast Iron cooking!  I'm sorry.... but how cute are things cooked in a little black skillet?  It actually makes me feel a bit more Southern or connected to the past or something.  These rolls look like something that my great grandmother would have made for Sunday dinner back in the day.  The best part are that Parker House rolls are so easy and absolutely to die for!  Beautiful and brown on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside.  Not to mention fun to make!
