Everybody loves ramen. Everybody loves burgers. This summer, I tried a ramen burger for the first time and it has forever changed the way I look at ramen.

These balsamic goat cheese sliders are bomb on their own. But making them with ramen buns is a simple way to get bougie on a college budget using ingredients you already have in your pantry.
