This was my first time ever cooking a burger, so I managed to set my fire alarm off making this! I'd advise you to know or learn how to cook burgers before this. Although mine still turned out good!

Add your favourite toppings to your ramen burger. I topped mine with ketchup, mayo, iceberg lettuce and cheese - it was DELICIOUS! Serve with your favourite side.

Enjoy! Tell me how it went if you cooked it, and please, if you've braved the queues in Smorgasburg, let me know how the ramen burgers there are, and how this one compares!
