Yaki-Soba Noodle Egg Muffins
Creative and fun holiday brunch or breakfast egg muffin made with Yaki-Soba Noodles! Just whisk eggs, pesto, and cheese and fold into Yaki-Soba Noodles! So easy, I have made it frittata style and sunny-side up eggs!
I love breakfast! It is my favorite meal of the day! I love to think of fun breakfast and brunch recipes that wow my family and friends! So of course, when I saw JSL Foods sponsoring the Fortune Noodle Blogger Recipe Challenge I had to say yes because of the categories.
Hello …. Noodles for Breakfast category!!! Noodles for Breakfast??? Why, of course!
The second category is #StirFry which is definitely my style of weekday cooking.
Lately, I have been swamped with activities that take me away from spending the day creating recipes! Believe me, all I want to do is submerge myself in recipe development and cook from morning to night but life gets in the way. Some memorable fun events and some terribly sad life moments happened during the Fortune Noodle recipe challenge submission period. Good news is that noodles are just right for happy celebrations and as a comfort food.
So here I am with just a few days from the deadline, and I have 3 hours of no guest meals, parties, memorials, nor directing the painters as they give my kitchen and the interior of my whole house a facelift! Let’s create noodle deliciousness.
The recipe I made today had been on my mind for so long. AND I am quite AMAZED at the outcome!!! Oh my gosh, super easy to whip eggs, pesto, and a Yaki-Soba seasoning packet and toss it with soba noodles and Ta-DA!! A Gorgeous Fun Dish is created!
I think you will love this easy noodle egg muffin! Please tag me when you make it! What’s cool is that you can make the noodle egg muffins as a hand-frittata or you can bake a sunny side up egg on it for the break-the-yolk on camera yumminess. I made half and half cuz I wanted to try both ways.
Hubby chose for his dinner the hand-frittata noodle egg muffin and topped it with salsa! Okay, you see, you can do your “thang”.
I love hat Fortune Yaki-Soba have ZERO MSG ...and no Cholesterol! Plus, the sodium is low for Asian package foods. Also when I read the ingredient label of the soba noodles I feel great...Annatto Extract and Turmeric to add color! So much better than dyes.
Oh by the way, I can find JSL Foods Fortune Noodles in my local grocery stores. When I walk by the refrigerated Asian section I always wink at the packages of JSL Food Fortune Noodles cuz they are like an old friend to me, always reliable. Hugs of Noodle Deliciousness to you too ~ I need to get on with my next JSL noodle creation.

Two Ways Pesto Yaki-Soba Egg Muffins
Note: I made 6 noodle egg muffins with the eggs mixed into the noodles, and 6 with the egg on top. If you want to serve more of a fork or hand held frittata muffin mix all of the eggs with the noodles. If you love eggs with runny yolks, bake a whole egg on top of the muffin. Feel free to adjust the recipe for 12 noodle egg muffins or 12 sunny side up baked noodle muffins, if desired.
2 (5.92 oz single packs) Fortune Yaki-Soba Stir Fry Noodles with seasoning
12 large eggs, divided, depending on what style
1/4 cup cream or whole milk
1/4 cup prepared pesto, homemade or grocery store’s refrigerated pesto
1 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, if desired
½ fresh lemon, squeezed for juice
3 tablespoons minced parsley, divided, substitution: basil
12 cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
2 tablespoon shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 small Salami log, about 2-inches, grated
2 tablespoons minced parsley, divided, substitution: basil
Salt and pepper
Note: This recipe is for 6 egg muffins and 6 baked egg pasta cups.
Preparation: Use cooking spray to coat 12 muffin cups. Preheat oven to 375°F.
Step 1 Pierce 2 packages of Yaki-Soba noodles with a knife, and microwave on high for 1 minute.
Step 2 In a medium bowl, whisk 1/4 cup water, and the 2 seasoning Yaki-Soba seasoning packets. Add 3 eggs, cream, and pesto, and whisk until well blended.
Step 3 Fold prepared Yaki-Soba Noodles into pesto egg mixture. Add Italian cheese, optional red pepper flakes, juice from ½ lemon, and 1 tablespoon parsley; gently fold.
Step 4 Divide noodles into 12 prepared muffin cups. Place 3-4 quartered tomato pieces on top of noodles. Make a small well in the center of 6 muffin cups to prepare for the sunny side up baked egg. Sprinkle all muffin cups with Parmesan cheese.
Step 5 Whisk 3 eggs, and set aside. Set aside the remaining 6 eggs to crack on top of the noodles. Tip: I like to crack eggs into individual prep bowls to ease the task of cracking an egg from the shell directly into the muffin cup.
Step 6 Bake the noodle egg muffins in the center of the oven for 6 minutes. Remove the pan. Add one whole egg to each of the muffin cups that have the wells. Divide the 3 whisked eggs evenly into the remaining 6 muffin cups.
Step 7 Bake the noodle egg muffins for 9–12 minutes or until sunny-side-up eggs are baked to desired doneness, and the remaining 6 egg muffins do not jiggle in the middle!
To serve: Garnish with grated salami and minced parsley. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
Yields: 12 noodle egg muffins
