Instant ramen is all about simple comfort, and deserves a like-minded topping to match. Top off the bowl with American cheese and watch how it melts into the soup to form a creamy broth. It's simple comfort food that invokes the nostalgia of childhood grilled cheese sandwiches.

Why You Should Use This Instant Upgrade

The best thing about American cheese is its meltability. Layered over the noodles in a hot bowl of ramen, it almost instantly succumbs to the heat of the broth, and softens into the noodles for a creamy twist.

How to Make It

Prepare the instant ramen according to the package instructions. Pour into a bowl and top with torn American cheese. Let it sit for a minute, then stir the noodles and cheese together until creamy.
