The other day, Andy and I went grocery shopping for the week. We bought ground beef for burgers but later realized that we hadn’t bought any buns. A recent tweet from reminded me and inspired me of this awesome bun-alternative that became a trend over the summer. While working in NYC this summer, I specifically remember the boom in conversation about food fads like the Ramen Burger or the Cronut. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the recipe for this masterpiece was actually quite simple. I didn’t follow it exactly, as I basically just used what was available in my kitchen, but they still turned out quite nicely.


-Ground beef, 2 packets of Ramen noodles, 1 onion, 2 eggs, 2 garlic cloves, soy sauce, plain greek yogurt, burger toppings of your choice, Sriracha, salt & pepper, olive oil


1) Marinate burgers in garlic, Sriracha, greek yogurt, soy sauce, and onion (we did overnight, but a few hours will suffice as well)

2) Cook Ramen noodles per package directions (put noodles in boiling water for about 3 minutes and then strain)

3) Let noodles cool for a few minutes before stirring in 2 eggs, ramen seasoning, and salt & pepper

4) Form noodles into 4 patties (we didn’t use all of the noodles for this) and place in individual bowls or ramikens

5) Let patties cool in refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes

6) Heat about 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet or frying pan and place two Ramen patties in at a time

7) Let each fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side

8) Set Ramen “buns” aside on a paper towel

9) Add more olive oil to the pan and form ground beef into patties

10) Let patties fry about 3-5 minutes on each side, placing a slice of cheese on top to let melt near the end of frying time

11) Spread Sriracha on the inside of each bun, place patties on top along with whatever other toppings you wish
