If you have leftover kimchi in your fridge that’s been fermenting for quite some time, how about turning them into these tasty pancakes, aka Kimchi Jeon. These are really easy to make and great as appetizers or snacks. My kids enjoy popping kimchi jeon into their mouth right after school. This version is not that spicy and have bacon in them, which goes really well with diced kimchi! Try making them with your little ones! They will love them!
