Spicy Napa Cabbage Kimchi Bruschetta

Our recipe substitutes milder sauerkraut with its trendier cousin kimchi. Add a topping of crunchy bacon to preserve the tradition of pairing sauerkraut with pork on New Year’s. This recipe is adapted from Hip Foodie Mom.


  • 1 French baguette, cut into 12-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (10-ounce) jar Napa cabbage kimchi
  • 1 (10-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Green onions, chopped


  1. Melt the butter and apply to each slice of bread.
  2. Toast bread under your oven’s broiler until golden brown.
  3. Spread ricotta cheese onto each slice of bread.
  4. Top each slice of bread with approximately 1 tablespoon of kimchi.
  5. Garnish each piece with diced tomatoes and green onions.
  6. Serve immediately to prevent bread from becoming soggy.
