Dragon Noodles

Dragon noodles

In an effort to continue with the theme of eating healthier in the new year, we made this noodle dish for dinner tonight. It took all of about 10 minutes to throw together and it was comprised of ingredients I almost always have on hand. We are fans of spicy dishes in this house, and let me tell you, this definitely had a kick. As I write this, my mouth is still burning, and it has been at least 30 minutes since I took my last bite! Even Joel made a comment about the spice, and that says a lot because the guy can handle spicy! If you like quick, cheap, spicy dishes, this is the one for you.

1 package (8 ounces) Lo Mein Noodles
2 tablespoons Butter
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
2 Eggs
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Sriracha
1 handful Cilantro (I omitted)
1 Scallion, sliced

Cook the noodles according to package directions. In the meantime, stir together the brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriracha in a small bowl. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the red pepper flakes as the butter melts. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl, then add them to the melted butter and stir until cooked through. Remove the egg from the heat and set aside. When the noodles are tender, drain them and add them to the skillet with the egg. Top with the sauce. Turn the heat on low and mix until all the noodles are well coated with the sauce. Sprinkle the scallions and cilantro over the top and serve.
