You’ll need 11 ingredients, including extra virgin olive oil, butter, brown onion, middle bacon rashers, plain flour, Maggi 2 Minute Noodles Chicken Flavour, milk, frozen peas, Devondale Colby Cheese Block, fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, and lemon zest.
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 20g butter
- 1 brown onion, finely chopped
- 4 middle bacon rashers, trimmed, roughly chopped
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 4 x 72g packets Maggi 2 Minute Noodles Chicken Flavour
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup grated Devondale Colby Cheese Block (500g)
- 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
- 1 tsp lemon zest
To get started, heat the oil and butter in a large, deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and bacon, and cook for around five minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens. Then, transfer two tablespoons of the onion mixture to a small bowl and cover it to keep warm.
Next, add the flour and two of the chicken flavour sachets from the noodles to the pan (discard the remaining sachets). Cook and stir for one minute before reducing the heat to medium. Gradually stir in the milk and two cups of water, then bring the mixture to a simmer. Add the noodles and cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally to break up the noodles, until they’re tender.
Once the noodles are cooked, add the peas and cheese to the pan and cook for another one to two minutes, until the peas are bright green and tender. Then, add the chopped parsley and lemon zest to the reserved onion mixture, season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine.
Finally, remove the noodles from the heat, sprinkle them with the onion mixture, and serve. Enjoy your delicious and easy cheesy 2-minute noodles!
