Let me introduce you to my husband, Kruz. He is the man behind the blog here at House of Yumm. He can always be counted on to come up with a fun, totally unique meal! He loves to experiment in the kitchen, and always surprises us with yummy snacks.
And yep..as you’ve probably guessed, this ramen grilled cheese here is his creation! Not only that…here he is himself to tell you about it 🙂
Ramen…….as a bun?! Those were my first thoughts when I was watching something on TV where this Chef Shimamoto introduced “The Ramen Burger” pure genius right?!
Our favorite cheap college meal dressed up to something deliciously fancy!
How Do I Make a Ramen Bun?
- To begin cook the package of ramen per package guidelines.
- Once cooked, strain the noodles, which will be mixed with an egg.
- After this you will find two ramekins (I found it easier to cut the noodles in half to easily scoop out half for each ramekin.)
- Place cling wrap over each ramekin and tightly pack the noodles in.
- Leave the cling wrap on and place the ramekins with the noodles into the freezer for 5 minutes and then the fridge for 10 minutes. This will ensure that it is going to hold shape.
- Once cooled, hold the ramekins over the frying pan, and don’t manipulate it in any way, the noodles will come out on their own.
- hen just cook each side until golden brown. Add fillings and enjoy!
