In these Hard Economic Times, it’s important to find recipes that get you the disgustingness you need without emptying your pocketbook. We turn to the Ramen Noodle Sandwich, which satisfies for less than a dollar. This assumes you are able to finish it, which is a big assumption.
The bread is slightly softened ramen noodle cakes. The filling is up to you. We made ours with American Cheese, topped of course with the ramen broth powder.
Eva: It’s like eating someone’s hair!
Mike: Yeah, it’s weird to want to give a sandwich a good brushing.
Eva: Have you noticed it just keeps getting bigger, sitting there on the plate? It’s like a Black Hole sucking up everything around it.
Ian: More of a White Curly Hole. But it does suck, yes.
Lorna: You really have to construct this sandwich quickly. It’s a two person job.
Mike: Yeah, but no one eating this sandwich will be eating with someone else.
Mike: This is what it must be like to eat entrails.
Ian: And just like with entrails your can tell your fortune. It is: “you will soon have digestive issues.”
Mike: Or, “you will die alone, just like you are currently alone.”
Mike: The MSG packet really makes this delicious.
Ian: Mmmm. Migraine powder.
[The verdict: very hard to eat--we suggest soaking the noodles for no more than 30 seconds. But it is weirdly tasty if you're able to get it in your mouth.] [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
