Creative Ramen Recipes

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!


Total Time: 10-15 min

Yield: 1 omelete


  • 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)


  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!

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.

Does everyone like long stringy Ramen noodles? I don't, so I pulverize them in a plastic baggy by smushing them with a glass-pint canning jar filled with whatever. After cooking, they are very easy to eat with a spoon.

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.

Dress up ramen noodle soup in a healthy, delicious way! Place ramen noodle soup in a bowl, just cover with water, and add your favorite greens (I especially love mustard greens).

Cook noodles then stir fry with fresh green beans and carrots. Add 1/2 flavor packet for low salt. Now add one large Tbsp. peanut butter and some hot sauce to taste.

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.

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.

This is how I've been eating my ramen since I was a little girl.

Ramen noodles and their flavor packets can combine with cheese, sour cream, chilies, olives and pimientos to make an inexpensive casserole.

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).

Native chickens are those we raise in our own backyards. Most of us prefer native chickens, because they are tastier than the commercial broilers in the market.

First I make up a mug of instant Asian Laksa or Spicy Asian noodle soup from packet using boiling water from the electric pot. Put the cooked ramen in a bowl, and top it up with the soup from the mug. Then add canned mushrooms, peas or beans.

Cook the ramen only 2 1/2 minutes (not three), with seasoning packet. Then in a in a frying pan, cook eggs, slightly over medium, (you want just a little runny. Chop the eggs into 1/2 strips.
