I don't know how many years I've eaten this... and to find it on AllRecipes makes me feel a little better, LOL! My husband makes fun of me for eating it, but hey, when you have $10 to buy a weeks worth of groceries and you only have a dorm frig, this is some great stuff. I still eat it when I want an easy meal. I'm not a big fan of American single slices, so I like to add shredded cheddar. I also like to stir in an egg when the water is boiling... kind of makes an egg drop soup type dish. I lived next door to some students from Hong Kong who ate the same stuff, only they put cut up hot dogs in it too. Not a hot dog fan, but hey... if you like it! Read More

This is a good basic recipe that works well. As a poor college student I've done Ramen a million different ways - and cheesy ramen is one of my favorite. Here's a tip on how to spice it up - add a tablespoon of butter, two dashes of chili powder, a dash of garlic powder, a dash of cyan pepper, and about a tablespoon of your favorite hot sauce to the top of your cheesy noodles once they are finished cooking and stir well - it's delicious!

I am glad im not the only one who enjoys cheese in ramen noodles. i also season ground meat with onion powder garlic powder and pepper then cook till done drain. boil ramen noodles drail only half the liquid off and add the seasoning packet mix in the ground meat and top with shreeded cheese. i serve it with garlic bread. this is really quick and easy and not an expensive meal at all for a family of four. my husband and boys love it and we think its really good!!!!!

Quick and inexpensive meal. Sometimes I skip the cheese and crumble less than a handful of Ritz Crackers to the top (chicken flavor only). Also I've tried it with a little syrup mixed in. You can be the judge. Be sure to use half the packet of seasoning when adding cheese as others have mentioned. Thanks for posting! Read More

For some reason I feel vindicated after discovering this recipe on allrecipes.com. I have been ridiculed by family and friends for years because I partake of the cheesy goodness that is Ramen noodles and sliced american cheese. I sometimes throw in a pat of butter for extra richness and a dash of Tony Cachere's for little kick. Read More

I graduated from college but still love ramen noodles as a guilty pleasure now and then. This was delicious! Adding cheese is simple and ingenious, and I can't believe I've never heard of it before. I try to watch my salt intake, so I drain off some of the water after the noodles cook and only use half the seasoning packet, which leaves the noodles with the same yummy flavor. I also add in frozen veggies to mix it up sometimes. This is a keeper! Read More

I know it's awful, but I love this stuff. I used to eat it all the time in college, with a pat of butter added. Yay for fake-cheese-smothered MSG-sprinkled deep-fried noodles! :) Read More

Like another reviewer suggested I added milk and cheese to the noodles and nuked 'em in the microwave for thirty seconds. Still very salty but I used the entire seasoning packet. Definitely only use half of the seasoning. Good basic dish that you can "dress up" to your liking with vegetables or different cheeses. Read More
