Ramen for breakfast—Why not? In this creative ramen recipe, par-cooked instant noodles are toasted and crisped to create a delicious base for cheese and whatever other breakfast toppers you want (fried eggs and bacon are recommended).
Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Once water is boiling, add unbroken block of ramen noodles, and boil 2 minutes, turning over gently after 30 seconds. Carefully transfer partially-cooked noodles from water to a plate lined with paper towels to drain; cool slightly.
Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high. When oil is shimmering, add noodles and gently spread into a 10-inch circle. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until bottom of noodles are golden brown and crisped, about 3 minutes.
Use a plate to cover skillet, and invert noodles onto plate; slide noodles, uncooked side down, back into skillet. Place cheese slices on top of crispy side of noodles; cook until cheese is melted and bottom of noodles are golden brown and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Cut in half, and serve immediately.
