This isn’t your run of the mill egg dish. It’s not the greasy blob of salty, runny slime that your dad made you for lunch when you were in first grade. This is the Ramlet: the ultimate combination of all that is college, egg and sodium wrapped up in a 5 egg blanket of mouth-watering deliciousness.

If you’re on a budget you certainly won’t be dropping any serious “quiche” (pun intended) on this recipe, but you’ll be drooling over the result. David Chang—owner and founder of the famous Momofuku empire—did it first in his magazine Lucky Peach, now we’re doing him justice by paying homage to his creation.
