Ramen Pancake

Here's another guilty pleasure! It's finals season for a lot of college students. That means eating late, stress eating, munchies, and anything else that fits into that category of "finals eating". My friend, Carmen, has been staying with me for the past few days since my roommate left for vacation. We were hungry one night, and decided we should eat ramen (college students, I know). Instead of making the usual ramen, I decided we should try to make a pancake.

This recipe is easy, quick, and delicious! Although it may seem strange, pairing the pancake with sharp cheddar cheese makes it even better! Be adventurous and give it a try!

Ramen Pancake
1 Pack Spicy Ramen
1 Egg
1 tbsp Oil
Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1. In a pot, cook only the noodles from the ramen packet.
2. Drain the noodles and place them into a bowl with 1/2 of the soup base packet and dehydrated vegetables.
3. Crack an egg into the bowl and mix until the noodles are completely incorporated with the egg.
4. Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Add the oil.
5. Once hot, add the noodles at once. Use a spatula to flatten the noodles into a pancake about a 1/2 inch thick.
6. Flip when the noodles are golden, about 2 minutes.
7. After the pancake is golden on both sides, add shredded cheese on the top.
8. Allow to melt, remove from heat, sprinkle some of the leftover soup base on top, and serve!

With all the hype with the ramen burger, why not go out on a limb and make a ramen pancake? I know this isn't the healthiest of recipes on this blog... But, it was too tasty not to share! It's different, but it is definitely worth a try to make. It's easy, quick, and inexpensive! Add a fried egg on top and eat it as a midnight snack! Don't forget to share with your friends! :)
