  • Ramen
  • Frozen corn niblets
  • One egg
  • Optional: Leftover chicken, ham, or porkchop

Start with however much water the package calls for, plus 1/4 or 1/2 cup more, in a saucepan. Get the water straight from the hot water faucet because, well, it’s quicker. Add contents of flavor packet. Throw in two big handfuls of frozen corn niblets, and bring to a boil. For some reason, other vegetables just don’t work as well.
Add noodles (smashed, if you’re in a hurry to eat it; intact if you have all afternoon) and bring to a boil again.
When noodles are nearly done, crack an egg into it and stir immediately, so that you don’t get big lumps of boiled egg. Let it simmer for a minute longer. Add thin slices of leftover chicken, ham, or porkchop, if you have any
Serve in a very large bowl, and sprinkle with a lot of freshly ground pepper. Best eaten using a fork _and_ a large spoon.

Note:Recommended for Sapporo Ichiban’s ‘original flavor’, or any no-name brand’s ‘oriental flavor’.
