How to Upgrade Top Ramen

Today's blogpost is going to be another recipe video that you guys have been requesting ever since you saw me post it on my snapchat (beautyzombiee if you don't follow me yet). I take a regular old pack of top ramen noodles and upgrade the crap out of it by adding different spices, vegetables, and of course, AN EGG! Continue reading to see how you can achieve this and to also see my recipe video on YouTube!

Ramen is such a popular dish for multiple reasons. It's not only because of the amazing flavor that comes from it, or the fact that it's so easy to make at home. But it's also DIRT CHEAP!
When you are struggling with bills, stuck in your college dorm room and can't splurge $10 on a hot bowl of ramen with your friends, I highly suggest you try this recipe out!

Another great thing about making your own ramen is that you can put whatever you want to it! Whether you want to go the miso ramen route, fry it in a pan, or do it my way... The ramen is your oyster!! (Does that work?)

The one thing I'd have to say about making this dish is that you definitely have to keep an eye on the salt content. I would honestly try and take out the seasoning packet entirely, but I put it in here for added flavor. Use low sodium soy sauce and do NOT add extra salt!!

Here is my video making this dish on my YouTube channel and you can find the full recipe down below!
