Mixed Bowl Ramen

I’ll admit it. I love ramen. The cheap bag of ramen that is pretty much in most everyone’s cupboard, office desk, or for me right now, on my desk. That great bag of Maruchan ramen, the one that costs less than fifty cents is good in itself and is a quick fix to feed the belly, but when you jazz it up a bit, well that ramen just gets so much better. So on a recent work from home day, I decided that I would make a bowl of ramen for brunch. The weird thing about working from home is that my routine gets jacked up. I start working much earlier, forget to eat breakfast, or lunch for that matter, and work much later. So this ramen did the trick during my ten o’clock lunch break.

This jazzed up ramen is so good and so easy to make that it will having you rethink that standard bag of ramen. A total upgrade in my opinion.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Maruchan ramen (I used beef)
  • 1/2 package of ramen flavoring packet
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 1/2 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp Furikake seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp Frank’s RedHot sauce
  • 1 egg, 6 minute cook
  • water

Start by cooking your egg. Bring a small pot of water on medium-high heat. Add the egg, bring to a boil, then remove from the heat. Keep the egg in the pot for 6 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of cold water.

Next, follow the instructions on your ramen package, and bring the noodles to a bowl. Add in half of the package of seasoning, and cook until the noodles are al dente. During this time, assemble your ramen bowl.

To the bottom of your bowl, add in the slice of American cheese, the furikake seasoning, and the RedHot. Pour in the noodles, and seasoned water, add the sliced jalapenos, and after peeling your egg, slice it in half and add to the top of the ramen.

Give the bottom a gentle mix and stir, and get your slurp on. The end result is this creamy, spicy, and punch of that awesome Japanese furikake seasoning, and that egg is just perfect on the cook time. Talk about an awesome brunch, that made my day just a little better. If you are looking to jazz up a standard bowl of ramen, give this one a shot, it’s well worth it. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. You can make that egg even better by turning it into an aji tamago. That’s Japanese for flavored egg. Once you’ve peeled the egg, seal it in a small Ziploc bag with soy sauce, water and mirin. I add a bit of garlic powder too. Keep it in the fridge until you are ready to eat. So yummy!!

    1. Yum, I should have thought of that! I’ve done soy eggs quite a bit, and smoked eggs. I guess that one slipped by me as I was darting to get ‘back to work’. Thanks for the comment!
