Whenever you make a quickramen dish for lunch, dinner, or an afternoon snack, the tried-and-true steps include boiling the noodles, mixing in the provided seasoning, and pouring them into a bowl. But that basic technique has serious competition in this viral ramen recipe on TikTok, which uses brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and a flavorful dash of a Trader Joe's favorite: Everything But The Bagel seasoning. It's easy to follow, and spices up mealtimes in a major way.
To get started with the TikTok-inspired ramen recipe, you'll need a medium-sized pot and pan, and ingredients like ramen noodles, butter, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, an egg, and, of course, Trader Joe's Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. You'll want to cook the noodles in a pot, according to the package's instructions, but leave out any steps regarding spices or seasoning. At the same time, you'll want to prepare your sauce by melting butter in the pan and mixing it with aromatic ingredients like garlic and red pepper flakes, which will give your dish some heat.
Once your sauce is prepared, and your ramen noodles are cooked and drained, it's time to mix everything together in your pot and scramble in your egg. Now, this may feel like a lot of steps, but these TikTokers' videos will show you how to properly put together this viral ramen recipe. Not to mention, their "first bite" reactions will make you want to run (not walk) to your kitchen to prep this trending dish.
