Thanksgiving Leftovers: Samyang Ramen Style

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Samyang Ramen Style | The Daebak Company

The biggest feasting day of the year, a.k.a Thanksgiving, is almost upon us Americans, and while good grubbing is guaranteed no matter what’s crowding tables the day-of, those of us who have celebrated Thanksgiving before also know that the bounty of the holiday overflows into the days (and even weeks!) after.

Instead of recreating your Thanksgiving plate with all those tasty leftovers for weeks on end, I suggest busting out a packet of your favorite Samyang Ramen flavor and getting creative!

(Eating discretion advised: I’m not a chef or a recipe curator—I just enjoy good food.)

Ice Type Hot Chicken Flavor

It seems like everyone’s post-Thanksgiving strategy is using the leftover turkey as a cold sandwich filling, but I say why not add the iconic holiday meat to the top of Samyang Ice Ramen? It basically has all the same parts of a sandwich—carbs, meat, sauce—just in a ramen-tastic form.

Curry Hot Chicken Flavor

Potatoes and curry are truly a person’s best friend, which is why you should enjoy your leftover potatoes with the Samyang Curry flavored ramen. Whether your table was adorned with mashed, diced, fried, or baked potatoes, there’s no reason not to mix it in with this ramen.

2x Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor

The 2x Spicy Hot Chicken Flavor is notorious for sending even the most spice-resistant tongues to a gallon of milk. While I don’t suggest mixing your leftover sweet potato and marshmallow casserole into the ramen (because gross!), I do think it would be a good sweet dish to have on hand to tone down the burning sensation.

Jja Jang Myeon Hot Chicken Flavor

I can’t be the first person to think of adding leftover ham to Jia Jang Myeon flavored ramen, right? It seems so obviously delicious! Because this flavor is based on the traditional pork-based dish, tossing your ham on top is a way of recreating the Chinese-Korean noodle recipe but in a convenient way.

Carbonara Hot Chicken Flavor

If you’ve tried the carbonara, you know that its subtle creaminess is a dream come true. To make the creaminess less subtle, why not add some creamed corn into the mix? Not to mention that if spice is not your life, the creamed corn will cut down the chili even more.

Stew Type Hot Chicken Flavor

Stew is hearty and delicious- perfect to dip your leftover dinner rolls into! ‘Nuff said.

Mala Hot Chicken Flavor

The Mala flavor comes with little dried vegetable pieces which you can ditch for all your leftover veggie sides. Brussels sprouts, broccoli, peas, asparagus, carrots, and more; toss them in and enjoy!

Original Hot Chicken Flavor

You either love stuffing or you hate—there’s no in between. I happen to love stuffing and don’t see what could go wrong if you sprinkled it over the top of the original Samyang Ramen flavor.

Cheese Hot Chicken Flavor

In my house, the mac and cheese is always the first to go. So, whether you want to recreate all that cheesy goodness in the holiday aftermath or somehow miraculously managed to save some leftover mac and cheese, the Samyang Cheese flavor is where it’s at. Remember the golden rule: there’s no such thing as too much cheese.
