    This is the last year of highschool before the seniors of Amador are shipped off to college, and many of them only know the basics of cooking, like cutting vegetables or boiling water to make ramen.

    “I think ramen is good and easy to make…but it only tastes okay.” says Meghann Klein (20’).

    Ramen is only so good, so I decided to try and mix things up by finding a few recipes to push ramen past the bland flavoring without cutting into my wallet.

    First I made the Bacon and Egg Breakfast Ramen, which includes a few strips of bacon, a large egg, green onions, sesame oil and a slice of tomato.

    “I think that it needs more bacon and egg, because once you eat those two it’s basically chicken ramen” said Jake Massie (18’).

    Next, I cooked Instant Mi Goreng by mixing together sesame oil, soy sauce, sriracha, and white pepper. The sriracha dominated the flavor and the noodles were terrible, so I would not recommend this dish

.

    After washing out my mouth, I moved on to the next recipe, which was plain old Mac and Cheese but I replaced the macaroni with noodles. By using a Kraft Cheese packet, I mixed it with some butter, milk, and the noodles. It tasted exactly like Mac and Cheese but the pasta was softer and chewier.

    For the fourth dish, I attempted to make Stir Fry Noodles using soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, honey, vinegar , bell peppers, bacon, scrambled eggs, and green onion. Other than the odd consistency of the noodles, all the other ingredients made it taste almost like authentic Chinese Stir Fry that my mom makes and it was surprisingly tasty.

    Finally, I threw together some Korean Chili Sauce, Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Vinegar, Honey, and Green Onions. By far, this was the best tasting recipe out of the 5 that I made.

    It tasted almost like noodles you could order at an authentic Korean restaurant. The chili and honey mixed with the other sauces made the flavor pop and it didn’t even taste like cheap ramen anymore.

    “Oh yeah, this is the bomb” says Nick Massie (18’).

   Overall, the Korean and Stir Fry recipes tasted the best, and when I go to college I’m going to be using these two to save myself some money.
