1 package of ramen noodles with flavor packet
2 cups water
Bring the water to a light boil. (Get off Instagram before all the water boils away.)
Add the noodles in the single block or break them up as you put them in the boiling water. Cook until noodles are soft.
Add only part of the flavor packet.
Not enough flavor? Add more.
Too salty? Add a little more water to thin it out.
Crack an egg, add it to the boiling mixture and stir.
OMG. You just made egg drop soup like at the Imperial China Palace Garden Buffet. (Well, egg drop soup, with noodles.)
There are many other flavors you can add to your soup as well as garnishes to enhance the texture, appearance, nourishment and overall appeal.
If you have any leftover beef, KFC, or ham, even if all you have is luncheon meat, cut it into thin strips and add it to your soup.
Graduate students of BGU (Budget Gourmet University) will also have some carrots, onion, or dare I say, scallions to mince finely as a topping to your meal.
