I have taken this recipe to potlucks -made it vegetarian when needed, used chicken, seafood-
changed dipping sauces- but one thing stays the same- they get eaten first off the table and I have learned to bring printed copies of the recipe so I don't spend the night writing !
Add to noodles the beaten eggs,chopped green onions,chopped water chestnuts, 2 packages of seasoning from the noodles,soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and any meats or fish as desired (must be in small pieces)
Remove from pan and place on paper towel lined dish until drained.
Serve on a platter-warm (they like them cold also) with dipping sauces such as hoisin,sweet and sour, ranch dressing- (you pick it and they can dip it-whatever you have available but an oriental taste seems to fit best.)
Hint: To make for a larger crowd just double everything and add to 3 /6/9 additional ramen noodle packages- add pkgs by 3 and just double the ingredients.
