Mi Goreng Noodle Toasted Sandwich
« on: July 14, 2021, 09:24:25 am »
Yep, you heard right!

Surprisingly a good flavour combination and great if you're after a quick, filling snack and are sick of the plain old, ham/cheese/tomato combination.

You'll need (per sandwich):

2x slices of white bread (sure, you can fancy-pants it with whatever, but some things are just better with white bread)
1x slice of cheese
1x pack of Indomie brand Mi Goreng instant noodles
Hot chilli powder (Optional)
Dark soy sauce (Optional)
Kewpie mayonnaise
Butter (salted or unsalted, doesn't really matter, just not that margarine crap)

Method:

1. Cook the noodles as per packet instructions. If you want things a little spicier, add some additional hot chilli powder into the mixture, to your taste.

2. While the noodles are boiling, fry an egg over medium heat. Just before its done, flip it over for 10 seconds or so just to seal the other side, then transfer to a plate.

3. Once the noodles are cooked and prepared, melt a bit of butter in a small frying pan. Add the first slice of bread then top with cheese, a generous portion of the noodles, a tiny drizzle (and I mean tiny) of the optional dark soy sauce, top with the egg then drizzle with mayonnaise (don't be shy). Top everything off with the other slice of bread.

4. While toasting under medium heat, I like to keep the pan covered with a lid to keep everything warm but don't burn things! It's better to go low and slow than to rush. Once one side is toasted, remove the sandwich from the pan temporarily, add a little more butter then place the untoasted side down. Keep cooking until both sides are nice and golden-brown.

Alternatively you could butter both of the outside surfaces of the sandwich and cook in a sandwich press.

(Yes I had the sandwich "upside down" in the photo.)

Interesting. I don't know if I will try a "carbo sammie" (yeah, you do have some protein in there). But, I wanted to respond because that brand of noodles are what I am having for lunch right now.

Here, I refer to all such noodles generically as "ramen". The staple of poor students (and many others) for years. I had no idea that the other side of the world also gets that brand.



In case some are unfamiliar, these are, in my considered opinion, premium ramen. They come with FIVE packets; seasoning, onion, garlic-oil, some thick soy-type sauce and chili sauce (mild hot). They were on sale for 2/$1 and usually go for maybe .69/each.

Indomie are great noodles. In the last five or six years I've found them easily in any supermarket I've tried in New Zealand, Australia, Russia, and Fiji. In the USA I haven't seen them in the big chains such as Safeway, but they're in asian supermarkets.

I prepare them two different ways:

1) half a cup of water and the noodle cake (broken up) in a pan. Bring to the boil and immediately turn it off and wait several minutes for the noodles to absorb all the water, stirring occasionally. Don't leave them too long or they'll get too mushy. While waiting, empty all the flavour packs onto a dinner plate and mix with a fork, add a spoonful of peanut butter and mix. Add the noodles and mix. This makes a fairly dry result that you *could* make a sandwich from.

2) take a bowl that can hold about two cups of water. Put the noodles and all the sauces in the bowl. Add boiling water, to a cm or so from the top. Leave for 10 minutes. You get more like a spicy soup.

Of course you don't have to use all the flavour packs. That's why they have five different individual things. But I like them all together.

I'm just disappointed that the "spicy" variety seem to be less spicy than the regular type. Even still, I find myself adding more chilli powder.

I find it's about perfect how it comes.

I've started cooking all my ramen/noodles this way with the added egg and garlic and it's significantly upped the taste and quality for me.

If you want a "carb sammie", don't mess around, make a "chip sanger" (French fry sandwich), also known to Brits as a "Chip Butty"!

On a slight tangent...

If it comes to making a fried-egg sandwich, I find that toasting some cheese on the egg the last few seconds before transferring it to the waiting slices of bread makes it so much better, especially if you add some lunchmeat as well.

How the egg is cooked matters as well. I tend to break the yolk once the bottom is cooking, add some pepper (or other seasonings) to taste, then flip it over to cook the egg the rest of the way.

As for what to put on the bread before the eggs, I always put Miracle Whip on one and the other gets buttered.

I think, for a fried egg sandwich, you want the yolk to be just runny enough to leak but not runny enough to dribble down your chin.

Having said that, I always flip them and do a solid yolk since I prefer 'clean' sandwiches, but Those Whose Wishes I Obey say that I'm a philistine.
