How to Cook Egg Drop Ramen Microwave
Start by preparing some hot water. Place clean water in a large bowl and heat it up in the microwave until it gets hot. Make sure to be extra careful when doing this because there is a tendecy for the water to burst during the end of the cooking time without any signs of bubbling. Wear something to protect your hands if necessary, or wait for a few seconds to a minute before you open the microwave to get the water out.
Once the hot water is ready, Open the noodle packet and soak the instant noodles in hot water. Gently push the noodles down using a spoon. Put it back to the microwave and continue to heat-up so that the noodles will cook quicker. Again, take extra caution.
Once the noodles are cooked, all you have to do is add the powder from the ramen packet along with the sesame oil. Add the egg and give it a stir. Top with scallions.
