Super easy and cheap, this meal is great for anyone trying to eat on a budget, and sometimes just when the craving hits! I grew up eating these as my parents made them a lot when they were newly married and it just stuck. Probably one of the first meals I learned to make on my own!

Ad

Total Time: 10-15 min

Yield: 1 omelete

Ingredients:

  • 1 package ramen noodles (I have only used chicken flavor) ($0.15)
  • 1 egg ($0.10)
  • 1/2 cup cheese (I use cheddar jack but any should work fine) ($0.50)

Steps:

  1. Cook the pasta only, either on the stove or in the microwave until soft. Then drain
  2. In a bowl, whip the egg and noodles together with a fork and then add in the spice packet. I only use half because its a bit too much favor without the water to tone it down.
  3. Heat a skillet that has been sprayed with nonstick or tiny bit of oil as this usually sticks a lot, to medium heat. Pour pasta and egg mixture on and flatten with spatula.
  4. Cook for a min or so on the one side and then flip over
  5. Have cheese ready to sprinkle on top as soon as you flip it over. Turn the heat down a little so the cheese has a chance to melt. Remove from skillet and enjoy!

Does everyone like long stringy Ramen noodles? I don't, so I pulverize them (before cooking) in a plastic baggy (no spill) by smushing them with a glass-pint canning jar filled with whatever. After cooking, they are very easy to eat with a spoon - no ridiculous and complicated "twinings" on a fork; leave that to native Italians. Carpenters needn't waste valuable time during our very short lunch periods.

Why waste time taking them out of the package first? I used to just crunch'em up right in the package. They are easy to break even with your hands.

Per serving: I take 3/4 cup chopped broccoli (fresh or frozen, cooked), crumbled fried bacon (1-2 strips), and mix with cooked ramen noodles.

We love canned chicken noodle soup but always seem to have more broth than noodles. My husband got the idea to add ramen noodles to the soup and it satisfies the desire for more noodles and makes a nice lunch.

I like to make chicken flavored Ramen noodles and add sliced cooked carrots in to it. I buy a can of Libby's sliced carrots and just add some to the bottom of the bowl of noodles. It makes a great lunch and is another way to get your kids to eat more veggies.

My husband and I make "must-go" ramen frequently. Little bits of this and that get tossed into the water to cook and once everything is tender, we stir in the noodles and flavor packet.

Ramen noodles make a great replacement for spaghetti, if you have extra sauce to use up. Just fix according to package directions and drain (don't use seasoning packet). It makes about enough for 2 servings.

Place noodles in a saucepan filled with boiling water, reserving the seasoning packet. Cook until tender, and drain. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and seasoning packets from the noodles, ( I only use one).

I have high blood pressure, so I can't have lots of salt. I like ramen noodles plus they're cheap, but I can't have all that sodium. Is there any way to make ramen noodles taste great with out using the salty seasoning? Thanks.

I occasionally use Ramen Noodles for a quick lunch, but never use the seasoning packet, for the same reason stated here. I cook them as directed, then drain off the cooking water, and add a little canola oil and parmesan cheese, or mix in about 1/2 cup of Salsa, especially good with fresh salsa. Veggies also add a lot of flavor.

Cheap meal: (serves 3 - 4, depending on additions)

Add 2 packages ramen noodles and one of the packets to cold water, bring to boil. Turn off heat, let sit until tender. While sitting, saute chopped onions (to taste) in peanut oil. You can add any other left over vegetables or meat/chicken to the onions Drain noodles reserving the liquid and set aside.

Combine 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid, 1/2 of the unused soup packet (save remainder for single cup of broth), 3 rounded Tbsp. peanut butter, scant 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. sesame oil (optional) hot sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste. Heat, stirring till peanut butter and sugar have blended.

Add onions/veggies/meat and ramen to pan, toss to coat. If it's not wet enough, add a little more liquid. You can garnish with diced green onion and/or crispy noodles.
