Ramen Grilled Cheese (Revisited!)

Ramen  grilled  cheese breaks the traditional  sandwich  out  of  the bread box with layers of gooey cheese nestled between crispy ramen  noodles.

Ramen grilled cheese is my recipe of the day. This is a recipe concept which I first published a few years ago. I had heard about ramen  grilled cheese and wanted to give it a try.

That version,which is now archived, included meatballs and  marinara sauce in between. It tasted good, but was a little large as sandwiches go  to  suit me.

I also didn’t feel  it  really captured the soul of a grilled  cheese.

I have now updated that recipe (you can grab the link  to the  old one at the bottom  of the  page).

This one  of much thinner with fewer ingredients to  distract. It’s  also easier  to make.

The result is crisp, keeps in  line  with a grilled cheese,  and reminds me  a bit of a cross between pan fried noodles and macaroni and cheese.

I used American cheese because it’s  traditional  but use what you like. The  finely grated Parm will be preferred to act as a binder.

Out of  the two sandwiches, this one is  the keeper for me.  I hope  you enjoy it as well.  It certainly is fun and  will help you think  outside the box when   it  comes to cooking.

    Of the Japanese curly Chuka Soba noodles do I need

    • I’m not sure those will work for you since they need to be cooked longer and I doubt they would hold their shape.
