We need to 'Store what we eat and eat what we store', so I needed to find a few recipe ideas so that the noodles don't sit in my storage until their use by date is up. My children like them, but prefer other things in them (well trained children!).
Here are a couple of ideas:-
Two-Minute Noodle Omelettes
2 packets of two minute noodles
200 grams sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon oil, to cook mushrooms (I use olive oil)
1/3 cup diced ham (you could use bacon if you prefer, just cook a little longer before adding other ingredients)
6 spring onions, chopped finely
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup finely shredded cabbage
6 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil to cook omelettes
- Cook two minute noodles without using the flavour sachets. Drain and cool slightly. Keep the sachets aside.
- Cook the mushrooms (and bacon if using that) in a small pan with the teaspoon of oil.
- In a large bowl, place cooked mushrooms, warm noodles, ham, spring onions, carrot, cabbage, eggs, 1 noodle sachet, salt and pepper. Mix well (I don't use salt - I think there's enough in the sachet already but that's just me).
- Gently place large spoonfuls of mixture in hot oil in your frying pan. Turn over when golden brown and set underneath. Before doing each batch, ensure that the mixture is well stirred as the egg will drain to the bottom of the bowl quickly.
Serves 4 as a light lunch with salad and fresh bread.
Two-Minute Noodles with Ham and Cheese
3 packets of two-minute noodles
4 large eggs
1/2 cup ham
1/4 cup cheese
- Hard boil eggs and let sit in cold water for 5 mins before peeling and cutting into 6-8 slices.
- Cook noodles for two minutes in boiling water then drain liquid. Add in flavour sachets from1 packet (add another if you like LOTS of flavour).
- Gently mix cheese, ham and sliced egg into the noodles and serve immediately.
Serves 2. Add salad on the side if preferred.
