Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 2 minutes

¼ pound bacon
4 packages ramen noodle soup in your favorite flavor


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and boil the ramen noodles for 3 ½ minutes.
  • Add the contents of 2 flavor packets and mix well. (Tip: If your bacon is especially salty, 2 packets may be too many. You can start with one packet, and then taste before proceeding.)

  • When the ramen is fully cooked, drain and toss together with bacon.
