Fancy Ramen

Long before Momofuku, and the other trendy Ramen restaurants, my friend Molly and I were tweaking the college favorite to make it feel gourmet.  This variation makes your ordinary Ramen noodles feel a bit like fried rice – and slightly more substantial.


  • Packet of Ramen Noodles
  • Water
  • 1 Egg


  1. Without opening the packet of Ramen, use your fingers to break apart the noodles, and crush them into smaller pieces
  2. Measure 1 C of water into a frying pan over medium-high heat
  3. Pour the noodles and Ramen seasoning into the water, and let the water boil
  4. Leave the mixture uncovered, until the water is almost all evaporated, and the noodles are soft and flavorful
  5. Crack one egg into the pan, and use a spatula or form to scramble the egg throughout the noodles, so that it looks like the little scrambled pieces that you see in fried rice
  6. Remove from heat as soon as the egg looks cook – you don’t want it to get too dry, and it will continue to cook a bit once you remove it from the heat
  7. Enjoy!

note: I LOVE seasoning and always use the whole seasoning packet.  If there were 2 packets, I would use them.  Molly sometimes used less than a whole packet because she liked it to be less salty.  Cater it to your own tastes.
