When we buy Maggie Mee from the supermarket, the one and only way we cook it is put the noodles in boiling water and add in the seasonings. That’s all; isn’t that boring?
However, there are so many ways we can make use of the noodles, turning it into dishes we thought are sold in restaurants. These are some recipes you can try out that can turn you into a Maggie Mee Masterchef:
Cook the noodles according to the directions given on the package. Drain the noodles while reserving the water of the noodles. When adding the cheese mixture into the noodles later on, you can add some water that you cook the noodles with to loosen the sauce.
It doesn’t look that Italy, but it sure tastes Italy!
Pesto Maggie Mee
To make the pesto sauce, chop pine nuts, garlic and olive oil in a blender. With the motor still running, add a pinch of salt and basil and let it blend until smooth. Add parmesan and pecorino to the mix. Cook the noodles in salted boiling water (yes, salted) for about 2 minutes, drain it and cover it with the pesto sauce.
There you have it, your green Maggie Mee.
Whoever says that your Maggie Mee has to be the main ingrediant? Here’s one whereby the Maggie Mee is used as a garnish instead, because #EggsFTW
Cut boiled eggs into half and scoop out the egg yolks. Add mayonnaise, chopped scallions and the noodles seasoning with the egg yolks and mix it thoroughly. Fill each egg half with the yolk mixture and garnish with the noodles.
Maggie Mee Fried Chicken
Grind the noodles in a blender until it becomes fine powder then add in the noodles seasoning. Stir a seasoning packet into buttermilk. Place the chicken pieces in the buttermilk and fry it in batches, while coating it with the fine powder.
Another way is to crush the Maggie Mee instead and deep fry it. Here’s a video tutorial for on how to cook this sinful dish.
Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package and drain it. Mix flour and water together, then add in scallion, noodles, sugar and a pinch of salt, and stir again to combine. Fry the pancakes in a pan until golden brown. Mix some soy sauce and sesame seeds and serve it alongside the pancakes.
Saute garlic and onions until it softens, then add in ground beef. Stir and cook until the beef is almost cooked through. Pour away most of the oil in the pan. Add in peas and carrot and cook until it softens. Sprinkle everything with flour and cook for another minute.
Add the water, seasoning packet, tomato paste, pepper, and soy sauce. Boil it, then simmer until the liquid thickens. Meanwhile, cook the noodles until soft and toss it with olive oil. Pour the beef mixture onto a pan and cover with noodles. Sprinkle with cheese and bake until golden brown.
Bloody Mary Maggie Mee
No, you didn’t see that wrongly. However, in this case, the main ingrediant isn’t the noodles, but the seasoning.
Mix tomato juice, vodka, lime juice, horseradish and sriracha. Place in the refrigerator and chill for one hour. Moisten the rim of a glass with water then roll it gently over the noodles seasoning. Pour the mixture into the glass and garnish.
Maggie Mee Slaw
Season cabbage and onion with salt and sugar and allow it to sweat for about an hour. Then, add in bean sprouts, sesame seeds, crushed noodles and peanuts. For the dressing, add rice wine vinegar, white miso, orange juice, sesame oil, vegetable oil, chilli-garlic paste and whisk it. Pour over the slaw and chill it before serving.
Potato chips and Maggie Mee dip
Mix the noodles seasoning into sour cream or cottage cheese. Let the mixture meld together for 20 minutes. Use potato chips to scoop the ramen dip.
Maggie Mee Nachos
Stir together the jalapeño, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice into a mixture. Season with salt and set aside. Crumble some sausages in a pan until crispy. On a pan, scatter the tortilla chips and cover it with the noodles. Top with shredded cheese and broil until the cheese has melted. Top the chips with the mixture, sausages, sour cream, and avocado.
With these recipes, Maggie Mee will never just be Maggie Mee again!
