Hey, y’all, hey! How are y’all doing? I’m still flying high — my son and daughter surprised me with a weekend visit. We were trying to figure out how long it has been since we’ve all been under one roof {it has been over 5 years}. My oldest and youngest kids couldn’t make it, but it will happen. I have faith. Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise.

Just a little about this recipe. For years, I’ve hated Ramen Noodles. Like, seriously hated. When we first moved to Italy, all we ate were Ramen noodles, Vienna Sausages, ham sandwiches, and Hamburger Helper. Eating out with a family of five can be expensive. My parents even got creative with the cooking and started using all types of seasonings to make the food better, but I still remember the bland taste and, yeah, I’ve had absolutely no desire to eat that stuff again.

My family, on the other hand, loooooves all that stuff. Whenever The Hubs made Hamburger Helper, the kids acted like it was a gourmet meal. It used to piss me off. But, sometimes, there comes a time in your life when you have to do something you swore you’d never do again. Mine was eat Ramen Noodles.

I was hungry and we hadn’t gone grocery shopping, so I got creative and it was delicious, y’all.

Disclaimer: This is not in any way authentic Ramen. It’s literally those noodles with the packet.

  • 1 package Ramen {any flavor}
  • 1 egg
  • 5 or 6 shrimp {deveined}
  • 2 cups of water
  • Everything but the Bagel Seasoning


  1. Bring water to a boil and add shrimp. Cook until shrimp are pink, then add the Ramen.
  2. Boil for two minutes. Stir in the seasoning package.
  3. Turn off the stove and carefully add the egg. Do not stir or break the egg {it may be easier to crack the egg into a cup first}.
  4. Carefully cover the egg with Ramen. Let sit for 1 minute. The hot water and Ramen will poach the egg.
  5. Pour into serving dish and season with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning.
  6. Enjoy!


You can add mushrooms, vegetables, green onions, pork, or sliced beef.
