From Basic Ramen to Gourmet Ramen

Top Ramen is universal in college residence halls, providing a quick, inexpensive meal to hungry students. Why does ramen have to be plain and simple? Well, it does not have to be!


A package of Top Ramen contains dried noodles and a small packet of powdered seasoning mix. Because it is very inexpensive and cooks quickly, ramen is often eaten as-is, with only boiling water added to make soup. However, you can spice up your ramen and add some delicious protein by drizzling a beaten egg into the noodles as they cook, making your own egg drop soup.

Step 1

Crack one egg into a bowl for every packet of ramen you are cooking. Beat the egg with a fork until the white and yolk are completely mixed.

Step 2

Boil water in a saucepan. Add the ramen noodles to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Pour the egg into the ramen broth slowly, stirring constantly. The egg will form ribbons as it cooks.

Step 4

Allow the mixture to cook for another 2minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 5

Turn off the heat and stir in the seasoning packet. Pour the ramen into a bowl and serve. Enjoy!
