I’m sure you’ve seen the craze so I had to hop on it and whip up these Mini Ramen Burger Sliders. They are actually pretty simple and super dang tasty.
Start by cooking your ramen noodles, drain them, and then mix in some eggs. This will help stabilize them. Next, spray some ramekins with PAM Original No-Stick Spray and add in a bit of ramen and press them a bit. Chill them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes so the shape will solidify.
From there, fry’em up in a little vegetable oil and set them aside. Here is where you can add in a little flavor if you’d like. Pour a little La Choy soy sauce on the ramen noodles to give them some delicious umami flavor.
When it comes to burgers I’m a big fan of using 80/20 beef. You need a certain amount of fat to help keep them together and of course make them delicious.
To finish off the burgers, serve with butter leaf lettuce, onions, bacon, tomato, Hunt’s Ketchup and Gulden’s Mustard.
They are only a fe bites but dang are they good!
