The "ramen burger," which originated at Brooklyn's Smorgasburg, can now be created from the comfort of your own home. To get started, use this simple recipe from Annie Chuns to make your own ramen burger bun.
In a sauce pan, bring 1 ½ cups of water to a rolling boil. Cook the noodles for 1 minute, then remove from heat and drain noodles.
In a small bowl, add the cooked ramen to the beaten egg and stir until the ramen is thoroughly coated in raw egg.
Divide the egg-coated ramen into 2 portions, and place each half into ramekins or other patty-shaped containers.
Cover the ramen with plastic wrap and weigh it down with a can of soup to compress into bun shape. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or more.
Carefully remove the ramen "buns" from ramekins and cook over medium-high heat until the patties are dark golden brown on both sides. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the burger patty until cooked through, about 3 minutes a side. Serve burger on the ramen bun and garnish with lettuce and tomato.
