In a large non-stick frying pan (preheat first!), add your bacon and saute on medium heat for a few minutes, until the fat has rendered and the bacon is golden brown. Place the bacon on a plate with a paper towel underneath and let is rest. Pour the bacon fat into a bowl and put aside. Turn down the heat. Using a paper towel drenched in water (squeeze out the excess water first),wipe down the frying pan to remove the blackened bacon bits.

(For my vegetarian friends, start with 1/2 Tbsp of butter and 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil, and toast the rice cakes (tteok) on medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown, as shown in the video.) . Remove the toasted tteok from the pan and let it rest on a plate.

Turn the heat back to medium, and add 1/2 Tbsp of the bacon fat and 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil and toast the rice cakes (tteok) on medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown, as shown in the video. Remove the toasted tteok from the pan and let it rest on a plate.

Using the same pan (heat set to high), add 1 Tbsp of olive oil, shallots, and garlic to the pan. Tilt the pan up so the ingredients are cooking at the corner bottom of the pan. Add 2-3 pinches of salt and freshly ground black pepper (about 10 turns on the pepper mill). Saute for 1-2 minutes or until translucent or "sweaty" looking. Then place the pan back down flat and add the canned tomatoes (including the juice). Using a potato masher, gently mash down the tomatoes. Add 2-3 pinches of salt, freshly ground black pepper (about 10 turns on the pepper mill), bay leaf, dried oregano, and mix well. Let the sauce cook on high heat for 2 minutes, to thicken the sauce slightly. Add the ricotta cheese and bacon and mix well. Add the tteok and butter and mix well. Let it simmer on high heat for 1 minute and transfer to a baking dish.

Using a microplane, add a layer of the freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano on top of the tteokbokki. Then add the shredded mozzarella cheese on top.

Preheat your oven to broil setting. Make sure to place your oven shelf to the highest level. Place the baking proof dish on a baking sheet and place it directly under the oven heat/fire. Close the oven and keep an eye on it. You want to cheese to melt and also have some brown marks on it. These brown marks will make your cheese taste better. BUT be very careful and keep your eye on the oven because you do not want to have black marks on your cheese. My oven took literally 60 seconds for the cheese to melt and nice brown marks to develop, but every oven is different so just keep an eye on the oven.

Now, this cheese tteokbokki sauce is so yummy that you must have it with some freshly made garlic bread.

On a baking sheet, place the sliced baguettes. Using the flesh part of the half cut garlic clove, rub the crust/rim of the sliced baguette. Doing this will add a subtle fragrance of that yummy garlic smell to the bread. Then spread some butter on the sliced baguette. Using a microplane, add some freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano on top. Then add some freshly ground black pepper. Place the baking sheet in your toaster oven or in the oven, at 350 degress, for a few minutes or until golden brown.

Hope you enjoy eating this cheese tteokbokki the way I do in my video. Just with the tteok drenched in the sauce; Tteok with the sauce and melted cheese; The Freshly made garlic, cheese, butter baguette toast drenched in the sauce and cheese; AND the ultimate way, with the tteok, sauce and melted cheese on the crunchy garlic, cheese, butter baguette toast. OH just simply YUM....FOOD Heaven...:-)
