What can I do with packet noodles?
The convenience of packet noodles is that you can rip them open, add the packet seasoning, hot water and you are done.
I find however, as much as I LOVE NOODLES, I need more stuff in my bowl to tick all of my boxes.
So I discard the packet seasoning and pimp my noodle bowl to balance out the food groups also.

- Serve with sriracha sauce
- Note 1 The type of noodles that work best for this recipe are the quick to cook style. Discard the packet seasoning and use the dried noodles.
- Note 2 We use approx ½ 1 chorizo sausage per person.
- Note 3 Save time and purchase diced bacon (no need to chop, add straight to wok).
- Note 4 Serving size is for 1 egg per person (fried, runny yolk)
- Note 5 The bacon and chorizo have a salty taste, so it is fine to omit the additional salt if you don't want it in the dish.
- Note 6 Spinach or Rocket (arugula) leaves are easy as there is no prep work. Choose your favourite. Spinach is mild whereas rocket has a peppery taste.
- Note 7 An Australian tablespoon is 20ml, an American one is 14.8ml. If you are using an American tablespoon use 1 and ⅓ of each for the sauce.
- Note 8 If you are new to using sriracha then use it sparingly as it is hot!! Add a little, then taste, then a little more etc. When drizzling, be really refined, a couple of drops, squirt is perfect, too much and it will ruin the other flavours in the dish!!
- Note 9 each of the chorizo, garlic and shallots are added at different time in the recipe instructions. Keep them separate on the chopping board or use 2 so you can add them at the different times.
