Joan's StoryI 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 !
ramen noodle seasoning from packages
large eggs, beaten
sliced water chestnuts, diced fine
1 3/4 Tbsp
soy sauce, light
shredded meat,or seafood (mock crab,salad shrimp)-
hoisin sauce (depends on taste)
vegetable oil to make a thin layer to fry
sesame oil to add to frying oil
sweet and sour sauce for dipping or whatever sauce you prefer
1Cook ramen noodles (without seasoning) according to normal instruction,drain, dump into a large bowl.
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)
2Heat oil in frying pan, add afew drops of the sesame oil to the regular oil- then drop noodles by forkful into pan-(I use tongs and grab about 2 tablespoons of noodle mixture to form each patty). Fry until brown (about 4 minutes on med high) then turn over and brown other side-
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.

Made these tonight. They were yummy. Had to change things a bit per what I had on hand. I used finely diced ham and regular onion with some dried chives. Had some bean sprouts I needed to use so did not use water chestnuts. They taste a lot like potstickers. This could be addictive! Very good. I will definitely make this again. Good lunch for tomorrow! Thanks for posting!
