Fat Kid’s Ramen

Submitted By: Luis Rodriguez

Submitted From: El Paso,TX


  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 2 packs ramen (Cup Ramen Preferred: use chicken, beef, or pork)
  • 2 Hot Dogs
  • 2 cans water (Tomato Sauce)
  • Garlic Salt (optional)
  • Lemon Pepper (optional)

In a medium sauce pan put the tomato sauce and water. This amount of water will give you a thick spaghetti consistency. Adding more will give a soupy consistency. Let it come to slight boil. Cut hot dogs (raw) into small chunks and throw into pot. Now let come to a full boil and cook for 5 minutes. Add the ramen, if using cup just rip cup and toss in, if using brick, don’t forget the flavor pack. (The reason I like cup is for the dried vegetables.) While cooking, season with garlic salt and lemon pepper, or just use salt and pepper as desired. Cook until the noodles are cooked like you like em and serve. (By the way this makes quite a bit or food, if just feeding one person just half all the ingredients.)

Trucker’s Ramen Chili Meal

First trucker recipe ever. This recipe comes from Lance and I think he’s a truck driver. It’s odd however that his email address has the word “Day trader” in it. I hope he’s not stock picking on the interstate. This recipe may also win a prize for the most processed food ingredients.

  • 1 can of store brand chili
  • 2 packs of ramen — (I like Hot and spicy or beef)
  • 4 pieces of bread
  • some butter
  • 4 slices of processed cheese
  • Accent food seasoning. (THIS IS A MUST)
  • Chopped onion

Make the ramen like normal and drain off water. Add flavor packet to the noodles and begin heating the chili. Make two regular grilled cheese sandwiches. Grab two bowls, put one grilled cheese in the bottom of each bowl. Dish noodles into each bowl on top of grilled cheese and top with chili. Sprinkle with ACCENT food flavor enhancer and sprinkle the chopped onion on top. Eat one bowl now and put the other in the fridge. When you get hungry again later, microwave the second bowl for about a minute and eat it. IT TASTES MUCH BETTER once it has been cooled then reheated.

Squashed Ramen

Here’s a recipe that you could call “healthy”, hey at least it has some vegetables in it. Also I will note that neither the submitter, nor I, could spell zucchini without the help of a spell checker. I also figure that olive oil would work well in place of butter in this.

  • 1 package of ramen, cooked with seasoning and drained
  • 1/8 c butter
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 1/4 c onion, diced
  • 1 tsp Season-All (McCormick’s)

While ramen is cooking, saute the vegetables in butter, in a pot large enough to hold ALL ingredients. Cook to your own preference: soft vegetables take 5-7 minutes, slightly crispy will take about 2-3 minutes more. Drain ramen. Pour ramen over vegetables. Sprinkle Season-all and carefully mix all ingredients. Serve and enjoy.

Edit: We almost had our 400th recipe, until I found out that I had something miscategorized… Almost there.

Easy Gourmet Ramen

Down to 40 recipes in my inbox. I’m actually tired of non-stop recipes, but the Ramen news has been a bit boring recently. Personally, I’m a bit suspicious about mixing garlic, lemon pepper, and milk, but hey, maybe it’s good.

  • 1 package ramen
  • garlic powder
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • spaghetti seasoning
  • black pepper (optional)
  • milk

Prepare ramen in the normal way. When noodles are fully cooked, drain most of the water, leaving 2-3 tablespoons in with the noodles. Add the seasoning, 1-2 teaspoons each of garlic powder, spaghetti seasoning, and lemon pepper seasoning. If desired, add the black pepper. Then add 2 tablespoons milk and mix well. It is even tastier if you let it sit for a few minutes and let the liquid be absorbed into the noodles!

The Spread — Ramen

I know some people in Concord, I hope this isn’t theirs!

Submitted By: Adam

Submitted From: Concord, CA

All this ingredients can ordered by inmates in the jails in Contra Costa County. When finished inmates call the stuff \”SPREAD\”


  • Packs Ramen Noodles (spicy chicken is the best)
  • 1 package of cheetos or generic equivalent
  • 1 package of spicy cheetos or generic equivalent
  • 1 Meat Log or 4 of the smaller meat sticks
  • Mayonnaise and tortillas

In jail there are no pots and pans, just a hot water machine, a microwave, small bowls, and garbage bags!

Step 1: The noodles: Smash the packages of noodles into small noodle bits. Take a large garbage bag (a new one) and put the smashed noodle bits inside of it. Fill a pitcher with hot water and put it in the microwave to get it boiling. Pour the boiling water into the bag and tie the bag closed. Let the noodles cook for 10 minutes.

Step 2: The Meat: Tear or cut the meat into small pieces, place all the meat into a bowl, add about a half inch of water and dump all the soup flavoring packets into the bowl. Cook the meat for 3-4 minutes in the microwave.

Step 3: The chips: Smash the bags of chips into dust. You can adjust the ratio of cheesy chips to spicy chips to whatever you like.

Step 4: The Mix: Dump the meat and any juice that is in the bowl into the garbage bag of noodles, Dump the chip dust in as well. Tie the bag back up and mix.

Step 5: Plating” This dish feeds 5 people, it should fill everyones bowl to the top. Use a county issued cup to dish out the spread. Top with a few squirts of mayo and give each person a tortilla.

This stuff makes a good burrito filling. Jail sucks. There are a lot of variations to this recipe of course but this is SPREAD in it’s most simple form. Noodles, chips, meat, mayo.

Needs a Name Ramen

Can’t think of a name for this creation, which does sound pretty good! PS – Can anyone think of the word that was misspelled when this recipe was originally submitted to me? It’s impossible to spell, I had to use google.

  • 1 packet of Oriental style noodles
  • 4 Slices of Bacon chopped
  • A Few Chopped Green Onions (optional)
  • 1 Dash of Worcestershire sauce

Fry up the bacon and then drain the grease, keeping 1 or 2 table spoons. In the pan add the seasoning packet and stir. Prepare the ramen according to the directions, and then pour this wonderful fluid all over. Top with a few green onions and a dash of Worcestershire and you have a meal that will make you useless on the couch in no time!

Note: The bacon should be chopped and you can do this either before or after cooking it. After is probably easier.

Barbeque Cheeseburger Ramen

This one is so quick and easy and sounds pretty tasty, so I am posting it!

Submitted By: Tobias
Submitted From: Portland, Maine


  • 1 package of Beef Ramen
  • Ground beef (about half the size of the Noodles)
  • 4 Tbsp. Barbecue sauce
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare ramen as you usually would, but drain most of the water out, leaving just enough to stir in with the seasoning packet. Brown ground beef in a separate pan, drain the pan of grease, saving some for the ramen. Toss the browned ground beef into the ramen (two forks helps with this). Mix in the Barbecue sauce and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Ramen and Lentil Soup

I like lentils, but I always screw them up when I cook them at home. I usually start with dried lentils and have to cook them for like 37 hours…

Submitted By: Josho
Submitted From: Canada


  • 1 (or two) packets Ramen Noodles
  • 1 can (large or small) pre-cooked lentils

Cook your ramen Noodles ‘soup style’ (do not drain). Open a can of lentils, and when ramen noodles are at the desired tenderness, add lentils. Using the flavor packet is optional, but probably makes it taste better. Eat!

This tastes interesting and provides a quick and cheap way to make your noodles into a healthier meal. Lentils are super healthy in loads of ways. I’m not sure it’s an actual improvement as far as taste goes… people usually think I’m wierd when I make this. It does add health value and volume though.

After-School Ramen Snack

Brad writes… The was a favorite after-school snack for my sons, adapted from a backpacking recipe I made up over twenty years ago. It’s like a pseudo Spaghetti-O’s. You can double, triple (or more) the recipe as needed.


  • 2 pkgs Ramen noodles (I like the spicy flavor)
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • Hot sauce (I like Tabasco)
  • Shredded cheese

Break noodles into quarters, place in pot. Add enough water to almost cover the noodles. Boil until almost all the water is gone, stiring the noodles often. (Or just cook the noodles and strain, it just makes more dirty dishes.) Add one seasoning packet and can of soup, stir, then add hot sauce and/or cheese to taste.
