Breakfast is the most important meal of the day…or so they say! And I am a big believer in breakfast. Especially breakfast ramen. I can’t claim credit for this – I saw a video on the internet for breakfast ramen and of course I wanted to try. I used to eat a lot of ramen back when I was on the boat. It was cheap, fast, and would last forever in my pantry. The way I used to make ramen was with very little water (so it didn’t turn soupy), an egg and sesame oil. I don’t usually use the seasoning packet in the ramen (although I hear it’s a hot commodity on Orange is the New Black).
Anyways, I saw this video (I think it was on FoodBeast) for breakfast ramen which had eggs, cheese and bacon. And it was served with a little sriracha sauce. So I made it! Here’s what I did:
Cook bacon in a frying pan.
Meanwhile, cook ramen noodles.
In a medium bowl, crack 3 eggs. Scramble with a fork.
Mix to combine.
In the frying pan with bacon, add cooked ramen noodles.
Then add eggs and cheese.
Cook for about 5 minutes, mixing thoroughly until eggs are cooked and cheese is melted.
Garnish with green onions and sriracha. Serve and enjoy!
