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.
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.
Boil water in a saucepan. Add the ramen noodles to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes.
Pour the egg into the ramen broth slowly, stirring constantly. The egg will form ribbons as it cooks.
Allow the mixture to cook for another 2minutes, stirring occasionally.
Turn off the heat and stir in the seasoning packet. Pour the ramen into a bowl and serve. Enjoy!
