Adding Fingers to your haunted Halloween Ramen Noodles

  • The first thing we need to do in order to make some fingers for our Ramen Noodles, is to boil a small pot of water.
  • Break your hot dog in half.
  • Make 2, very shallow cuts in the middle of the hot dog pieces. These will be the knuckles.
  • The last item to making our fingers, is to make the fingernail. Using a spoon we cut away the pointed end.

Ramen Noodles & other toppings

  • Thoroughly was the napa cabbage, & once completed, separate the leafier parts from the stalks.
  • Cut the tofu into smaller, bite-size pieces.
  • Cook the ramen noodles without flavor packs for around 3 minutes.
  • Separate & rinse the ramen noodles, & toss with sesame oil. Be sure to keep the water, as it’s necessary for cooking the hot dogs.
  • Add the flavor packs into water, then cook the finger hot dogs prepared earlier, &the tofu for 3 minutes.
  • Poach the napa cabbage for 3 minutes, & remove the softer parts at about half way through.
  • Poach Enoki mushrooms for 1 minute.
  • Lastly, to assemble we place the cooked noodles at the center of a noodle bowl. Then layer the cabbage, mushrooms, tofu, & hot dog fingers on top.

Make it bleed

Additionally, if you want to kick up the heat & add some “blood stains” to your noodle dish, decorate the bowl with some red sriracha.

Cold? Warm up with Ramen Noodles

When it’s cold out, warm up with some Ramen Noodles!

When it’s cold out… I mean Ohio sub zero cold, I prefer to warm up with one of two things. Either some piping hot coffee, or a delicious bowl of Ramen!

 

There are a couple of items that I will add to a regular packet of instant Ramen Noodles to get it to these desirable, warming temperatures. First & foremost is to add a habanero to the noodles while they boil. Once the noodles are completed, I throw them into the strainer & put the habanero into the pan. At this time I usually put the packet of flavor into a bowl, & let it sit. Back to the pan, I dump in some sriracha, chili oil, teriyaki sauce, butter, & some mushrooms or egg plant. Once that sauce gets to a simmer, I’ll introduce the noodles from the strainer, mixing the hot sauce to the noodles. By the time the noodles are good & mixed, I add to the packet flavor in the bowl. Mix & enjoy!
