Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Bavarian sausages — For a smokier flavor, grill or pan-fry the sausages before adding them to the broth.
  • Sauerkraut — Rinse the sauerkraut under cold water to reduce its tanginess if desired.
  • Ramen noodles — Cook the noodles al dente to ensure they don't become too soft in the broth.
  • Soft-boiled eggs — To achieve the perfect soft-boiled eggs, cook them for 6-7 minutes and then immediately transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  • Potatoes — Cut the potatoes into small cubes to ensure they cook evenly and become tender in the broth.

Tips & Tricks

  • For added richness, you can stir in a tablespoon of sour cream or heavy cream into the broth before serving.
  • Customize your toppings by adding sliced radishes, green onions, or pickled ginger for extra flavor and crunch.
  • If you prefer a spicier ramen, add a dash of Bavarian mustard or hot sauce to the broth.
  • Experiment with different types of Bavarian sausages, such as bratwurst or weisswurst, to vary the flavors in your ramen.
  • Leftover Bavarian-Style Ramen can be refrigerated and enjoyed the next day. The flavors will meld together even more, creating a delicious leftover meal.

Serving advice

Serve the Bavarian-Style Ramen hot in individual bowls. Make sure to include all the toppings, such as the soft-boiled egg and chopped parsley, for an appetizing presentation.

Presentation advice

To enhance the presentation, arrange the sliced Bavarian sausages, sauerkraut, and potatoes on top of the ramen noodles. Drizzle a little extra broth over the toppings for a glossy finish. Sprinkle some paprika or caraway seeds on top for a pop of color.
