  • One 3-ounce package instant ramen noodles

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/4 cup shredded cabbage

  • 2 thin slices maple glazed ham

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallions

  • Sriracha, for serving


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the noodles and the seasoning packet with 2 cups of water and microwave on high power until the noodles are cooked, 4 minutes.
