7 Minutes in Heaven with Cheese Bokki in Ochang, South Korea.

I miss having a six burner stove, bulk storage room, and two commercial refrigerators. Living in a co-op in Chicago definitely spoiled me and my eating habits. No longer can I rely on it being someone else's chore to purchase my food. Or, make my dinner. Time to get resourceful! I present to you my first concoction: "7 Minutes in Heaven" with Cheese Bokki.


Some oil
1 cup of hot water
1 package of cheesy ramen noodles
1 hot dog
A little green pepper
1 clove of garlic
2 eggs
Bok choy (Chinese cabbage) for good cheer


3 minutes: Find a FamilyMart (now CU), GS25 or 7-Eleven convenience store in your area. It shouldn't take long, as there seems to be one on every corner of South Korea.

Buy whatever brand of cheesy ramen noodles you can find.

Add hot water.

2 minutes: Sautee garlic and green peppers in a small frying pan.

Put in a chopped hot dog to feel like you're a kid again, and throw in some bok choy to help yourself feel better about making unhealthy choices.

1 minute: Add two eggs to the mix. Cook until browned.

1 minute: Pour the hot-doggy goodness into the cheesy ramen noodles.

POOF! "7 Minutes in Heaven" with Cheese Bokki. You'll surely find yourself necking with this simple meal again.

Serve in the disposable container provided. Garnish with chopsticks. Fork optional.
