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. http://bit.ly/edKCKP
- Cook 2 rashers of bacon until crispy; set aside on paper towels to drain. (Reserve the 2 uncooked rashers for step 3.).
- Crush the ramen in the package until reduced to small pieces. Carefully open the package; remove and reserve the seasoning packet.
- 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!
