We Like to Eat: Tongan Pancakes

I’m not really sure where this name came from. I learned it on my mission in California. It was a recipe passed around the mission until it ultimately found its way into my kitchen. And the people who taught me didn’t know where the name came from either. And now, neither do you. But it doesn’t matter. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right?

What you need:
Ramen (chicken flavor is the best)
1 egg
BBQ sauce

So here we go. Boil some water. Scramble the egg. Mix the flavoring into the egg.

Drop the Ramen into the boiling water but do not break it up. Let it sit for about 30 seconds and flip it over. Another 30 seconds or so (no longer than a minute total) and take it out. Move it to a frying pan on medium-high heat and open the noodles so they make a rectangle. Pour the egg up and down the center of the whole thing.

Let it cook and then flip it over. You may have to push the egg back into the noodles if they start running. While it’s cooking, grab a plate and put two slices of bread on it. Once the egg is completely cooked on both sides, lay the noodles flat over the two slices of bread. Add barbeque sauce.

Close it and eat it.

So good.

I have yet to meet anybody who doesn’t like this. It’s simple, fast, and yummy. Let me know what you think in the comments.

  1. Why is it called Tongan Pan cakes?
    Because I am from a country in Tonga and this doesn't look tongan?


    sorry, really want to know here [:

    have a good day.

  2. LoL...cause this is not Tongan Pancake at all. The Moron who named it, probably likes BBQ sauce on EveryThing!


Let us know what you think.
