Author Notes

Cheese ramen or a Mac and Cheese? I definitely can’t choose.
Bouncy ramen noodles nestled in a creamy buttery yet light cheese broth, made from mild cheddar, some cheese spread and garlic powder. Scattered with chopped chives and drizzled with chili oil. Easy, fast, ready in 15 minutes. The cheese broth combined with the runny egg helps to coat the ramen noodles and deepen their flavor.
A quick fix for the soul. A taste of Asian-American comfort food. —Anna Chwistek | Serving Dumplings
