This "ramen fusion hack" dresses up packaged ramen noodles with fresh ingredients to take it in a non-Asian direction. Adapted from a recipe at Serious Eats.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices bacon, sliced crosswise into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 (3 -4 ounce) package chicken-flavored ramen noodles
  • 1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Cook 2 rashers of bacon until crispy; set aside on paper towels to drain. (Reserve the 2 uncooked rashers for step 3.).
  2. Crush the ramen in the package until reduced to small pieces. Carefully open the package; remove and reserve the seasoning packet.
  3. Pour noodles into a saucepan, along with corn, water, milk, cooked and uncooked bacon. Add half the seasoning packet, bring to a simmer and cook until noodles are tender. Add butter. Stir well and serve.

Ramen noodles are so fun to play with. This recipe works very well for a super-quick, hot lunch. I added some chopped scallions for some extra flavor and color. It's very important to thouroughly crush those ramen noodles as written, or the texture won't be right. I may add some herbs and/or spices next time, as the flavor is a bit mild; not bland, just a bit mild.... maybe too mild for some tastes. Thanx for sharing!
