Editor’s Note: Noodles, for breakfast? Take it from me: You’ll be glad you tried it. This simple dish comes together in a few minutes with just instant ramen, powdered eggs, green onions, and a small baggie of seasonings. It’s been a staple on my trips ever since I whipped it up for the first time on a trip with my now-wife in Montana’s Garnet Mountain fire lookout. It’s so good that you might find yourself eating it for dinner, too. Carnivores can crumble bacon, jerky, or the protein of their choice on it for a meatier bite, but it’s not essential. —Adam Roy
