Cheesy Ramen with Poached Egg


  • Yield: Serves 1, can be increased over and over and over again.

Ingredients

  • 1 package ramen, with the flavor packet
  • 2 slices American cheese, torn into quarters
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook ramen according to package directions, including adding the flavor packet.
  2. Add cheese and butter and stir until cheese has melted.
  3. Crack egg into a small bowl. Pull the noodles to the side, gently pour in the egg, and then ever-so-gently drape the noodles over the egg. Cover and let it sit for 3 minutes.
  4. Pour the whole thing into a large soup bowl. Sprinkle with scallions and fresh pepper, gently break the egg yolk so it melts into the broth, and eat it up. Feel much better.
