Struggle Meals - "Instant Gratification"

Prep Time
Cook Time


  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages ramen
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  1. In a skillet on medium heat, add bacon. Cook until crispy, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and set aside. Add butter and half-and-half. Whisk until butter is melted.
  2. Gently break ramen into a single layer and add to milk mixture. Turn heat to medium-high and let milk boil, gently stirring the ramen to break it up. If milk evaporates too quickly and ramen is not soft, add 2 tablespoons of water at a time. Sprinkle with cheese. Turn off heat, add egg and stir quickly until cooked. Stir in cooked bacon and parsley.
  3. Divide between two plates. Sprinkle with more Parmesan to serve.
