Credit Crunch Recipe - Fried Noodle, Egg, Cheese and Bacon Fridge Clearout!

Whilst the whole wide world seems to be going through the 'Credit Crunch' you can add any kind of vegetables etc to this that you might have otherwise thrown away. Ideal for when you have a fridge clear out day - Thrifty Jan ah!

Now, I don't suppose this will have done me a bit of good with the noodles, cheese and bacon......Lord knows how many calories are in this lot. But hey ho, I've never added calories up in my life and thank goodness, I haven't had to.
Remember a while ago I fried left over spaghetti?  Well this time I had some left over noodles. So, noodles got fried, same sort of thing me thinks.
Here is another concocted recipe from fridge left overs!
There's no real recipe so you can use whatever else you fancy.
To make this for 2 people I used:
noodles, you know the kind, the ones that come ready to stir fry
2 rashers of bacon cut into small strips
2 eggs - lightly beaten
salt and pepper to season
chili oil for frying and drizzling - use garlic or vegetable oil if you want, I just like spicy things!
2 spring onions - sliced diagonally - just so it looks like you've made an effort!
a good amount of grated matured cheddar cheese
a few bits of feta crumbled
In a large frying pan:
In a little chili oil fry the bacon bits until nice and crisp and golden
Now add the spring onions and stir for a minute.
Put in some more chili oil and now add the noodles. Breaking them up if they clump together. You can cut them into smaller bits with kitchen scissors before hand if you wish.
Get the noodles hot and cooking away then stir in the eggs. Leave to cook for a minute and then throw in the grated cheese. Season with a little salt and pepper.
It will look like a spaghetti omelet, so now try turning it over. Don't fuss about it falling apart and if actually only half of it gets turned over - it all adds to the look! You'll end up with crunchy, and not so crunchy bits and soft noodle along with melty cheese too.
Divide in half and tip onto serving plates. Top with a little crumbled feta, drizzle with a bit more chili oil and tuck in.

  5. I love these kind of clean-the-fridge-out dishes. Trouble is, they're never the same twice.

  6. Is that feta on top?!?! You get 10 points in my book for this! I've gotta clear out some stuff too. Who knows what I'll come up with. I'll do that series this week - see how many meals I can get out of it.

  8. LOL - this is exactly how dishes get concocted in my house - a bit of a dig around the fridge to find vintage produce that needs using up and then ready, steady, cook! This looks like a very successful on-the-fly dish - bacon & feta are your best friends :)
