Put an Egg on It

What do leftover rice and ramen noodles have in common? They're both cheap AF and can be upgraded into a real meal with the help of one simple addition — an egg.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt

Steps

  1. In a bowl, combine pancake mix and water.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, and add 2 tablespoons butter.
  3. Spoon pancake mix into pan and cook pancakes. Repeat with remaining batter, and stack pancakes on a plate.
  4. In the same pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter.
  5. Crack the egg into the pan, sprinkle with salt and cook until done.
  6. Serve egg on top of pancakes.
