Dragon Noodles

This recipe came up on Facebook from the Sriracha people.  It looked like it would be a really good breakfast.  D had to work, and I was slightly hungover. I decided I would make this.  One problem...we had no eggs.  So I went to McDonald's, sorted my coupons, and then went grocery shopping.  I decided I would have this for lunch.

It comes from a Budget website, so I decided to just go with that and use egg noodles we already had in the pantry.  And I was really hungry, so I already knew I was eating both portions.

It was SIMPLE to make.  I will definitely make again.

Ingredients
4 oz. egg noodles or whatever noodles you have in the pantry
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 large egg
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp sriracha (rooster sauce)
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp sliced green onion

Instructions
Begin to boil water for the noodles. Once the water reaches a full boil, add the noodles and cook according to the package directions (boil for 5-7 minutes).

While waiting for the water to boil, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl stir together the brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriracha.

In a large skillet melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium-low heat. Add the red pepper to the butter as it melts. Whisk an egg in a bowl and then add to the melted butter. Stir gently and cook through. Once the egg is done cooking, turn off the heat.

When the noodles are tender, drain the water and then add them to the skillet with the cooked egg. Also add the prepared sauce. Turn the heat on to low to evaporate excess moisture, and stir until everything is coated well with the sauce. Sprinkle the sliced green onions and cilantro leaves (whole) on top and serve!
