Ham, Vegetable and Noodle Lunchbox Bite recipe

These nutritious and affordable lunchbox bites really pack a punch and are super simple to make. They freeze really well too, so are perfect for popping in the freezer and having on hand for a quick breakfast, an easy school lunchbox filler or an afternoon snack.

If you’ve got leftover veggies in the fridge that you need to use up, then this recipe is brilliant. I pack my Lunchbox Bites with these veggies (carrot, zucchini and corn!), MAGGI Wholegrain 2 Minute Noodles, eggs, ham and cheese – so yummy! The eggs give them a quiche-like texture and the MAGGI noodles provide a source of wholegrain and fibre.

Once all the ingredients are prepped, they can all be mixed together in a bowl ready for baking.

Protein wholemeal fibre and vegetable lunchbox bite

I made my Lunchbox Bites in a muffin tray because it was fuss-free, and created the perfect sized bites for a school lunchbox. The remaining mixture I put into a loaf pan which made really yummy slices. You can put the entire mixture into a large rectangular pan if you prefer the slices, to the muffin style bites.

I like to use silicone bakeware for this recipe because it makes cleaning up a breeze! I did line my silicone loaf pan with baking paper to make the slice come out easier, so there is no need to oil the pan. You can view these products here.

These bites can be eaten hot or cold. I like to freeze them and pop them straight into the kid’s school lunchboxes in the morning, so they’re fresh and perfectly defrosted by lunchtime.

You can make a bunch of tasty snacks using the MAGGI 2 Minute Wholegrain Noodles, but I especially love to use the wholegrain variety so that I can get extra wholegrain goodness – as well as some extra fibre – into my kid’s diet. Check out my 5 quick ways to jazz up 2 minute noodles here.

I like to make the noodles drain them and while they’re still really hot, add an egg so it scrambles then add chili powder

Kirsty Bunyan January 23, 2020 - 5:01 PM

It’s a bit weird but so yummy. Maggi 2 minute noodle toasties! Drain the noodles then mix in the favouring sachet. Add the noodles to your bread with cheese and any other fillings you would like (I like shredded chicken and cheese with chicken noodles) and toast!

Amanda January 25, 2020 - 8:33 PM

I make a Singapore noodle stir with them . Quick and easy

Lisa Fairbridge February 10, 2020 - 1:59 PM

My kids love it when I put Maggi 2 minute noodles (cooked) in my meatballs and meatloaf. They also love them broken up (uncooked) and sprinkled on salad or in tortillas and tacos.

Rachell Campbell January 30, 2020 - 11:33 PM

I I love cooking the 2 minute noodles normally but with some extra liquid and then adding a packet of instant soup. So you can make any flavor noodles you like. My favorites are either tomato soup and cracked pepper soup. So delicious and such a great way to change things up.

Candice O'Kane January 31, 2020 - 12:06 AM

I love them as is can’t go wrong lol my daughter miss 8 loves to take them to School in her lunch box as she has just mastered the fine art of chop sticks and at any chance she can get will use them lol

Rebecca February 3, 2020 - 3:52 PM

I love creating my unique “chicken and vegetable squiggly long noodle soup” with the Maggi wholegrain 2 minute noodles. So yummy and bonus that it’s wholegrain!

Charmaine February 5, 2020 - 2:45 PM

We like to use a chicken flavoured noodles in our chow mein recipe as well as using them for a quick lunch or dinner snack alone ?

Caroline January 23, 2020 - 7:18 AM

The kids & I love ‘eggie noodles’ ? We cook the noodles, melt some butter in the frypan, sauté some diced onion & add cooked noodles. Meanwhile whisk 2 eggs per noodle packet (or to your liking), pour them over the noodle mix, add grated cheese. Mix gently till cooked to your liking. Enjoy!!! ?

Benita January 23, 2020 - 1:33 PM

I prepare the noodles according to the packet instructions but I add frozen fishballs or fish cakes with miso broth.

Julie January 25, 2020 - 3:42 PM

I make noodle pancakes. Cook 2 minute noodles like normal then mix with some egg, cheese and ham. Divide into batches and lightly fry in a pan. My toddler loves them!

Jamie January 26, 2020 - 12:11 PM

My kids are not huge fans of rice, so we substitute most of these meals with noodles, and it tastes great. From teriyaki chicken to stroganof.
Also great to make noodle cups by cooking them up, draining, then baking between two muffin pans to make cups. Can be used to tacos or anything really. Kids love them!!

Emma Mackie February 5, 2020 - 1:40 PM

I love to use Maggi noodles as crispy noodle fritters, I add fresh coriander, chilli, soy, a bit of flour and egg, fry in hot oil and serve with stir fried vegies on top.

Cass Wilson January 23, 2020 - 8:29 AM

I make the Maggi noodles (usually beef) as per the packet instructions and add peas, corn and capsicum while it’s boiling. Serve with a fried egg on top and a sprinkle of fried shallots. Devine! ????

Mandy January 23, 2020 - 8:54 AM

Mr 17 is doing his finally year of school and we just found out he has Type 1 Diabetes so this is perfect for school lunches + all those carb point count 🙂 Actually I remember making a prawn and Maggi stir-fry years ago with a little lime juice… Have to make that one again!

Amanda January 23, 2020 - 8:55 AM

Be excellent if Maggi would start making the noodles flavour sachets without MSG in them, be much better for feeding children! Flavour 621 is MSG for those that don’t know.

Renee January 30, 2020 - 7:29 PM

My hubby likes to enjoy them after a big session at the gym. Cooked as per instructions and mixed through a half tin of warmed baked beans for carb and protein loading

Tanya January 23, 2020 - 9:05 AM

I love cooking stir fries with Maggi noodles, I also do the zucchini, carrot and bacon lunch box bites… because everything tastes better with bacon ?

Reshma January 23, 2020 - 9:44 AM

My three kids (7, 3 and 2) like it like a soup, with sweetcorn, grated zucchini and an egg (make its like a Chinese soup) yum! no problems feeding them

Lisa Pang January 25, 2020 - 2:25 PM

Kids have always loved them in an omelette type thing, noodles , eggs ham, seasings cheese, veg if they will eat it. Even my girl who doesn’t eat eggs loves it . But use them in stir fries as well.

Caroline January 28, 2020 - 6:20 PM

2 minute chicken noodles In a chicken and vegie stir fry. Delish. And a winner with the picky kids. Much easier to navigate than some other noodles.

Tara February 5, 2020 - 8:45 PM

I take to work a bowl of beef bone broth and cut up veges, carrots, zucchini’s mushrooms etc also add some powdered garlic and ginger and even fine slices of beef if I have them. I add the uncooked noodles on top. In my lunch break I just add boiling water and cook for a few minutes and I have a lunch that sustains me for the rest of the day!

Shelley Dunn January 23, 2020 - 12:17 PM

In our house hold we love to make Noodle Omelette’s!
We Break up the noodles and cook as per packet instructions, drain.
The heat the oil in a small non-stick frying pan over medium low heat.

Amy January 23, 2020 - 12:25 PM

I love to use the hot and spicy mi goreng ones with extra water to make a soup consistency add som chicken, shallots, mushrooms, capsicum and what ever veges I have and turn it into a a spicy noodle soup. Could live on it ??? my kids on the other hand love the chicken ones with shredded chicken through them.

Karen Constantine January 23, 2020 - 12:29 PM

Renee Hatcher January 23, 2020 - 12:50 PM

My kids just love a dish I came up with the other night I cooked off some pork mince with minced garlic, ginger then I thru in some steamed vegs packets and 4 pkts of Maggie noodles cooked and splash of sweet soy and oyster sauce… it’s now a family favourite

Nikoly January 25, 2020 - 6:05 PM

My kids just eat the noodles as they are and drained. Might have to try some of these delicious meals and see if they will expand their tastes

Benita January 23, 2020 - 1:35 PM

I prepare the noodles according to the packet instructions but I add frozen fishballs or fish cakes with miso broth.

Nusrat January 23, 2020 - 2:07 PM

When i was little my mum made maggi fritters.
She would add chopped onions, coriander and some chickpea flour to the maggi and deep fry spoonfuls of it.

Magdalene Manukonga January 23, 2020 - 3:03 PM

Growing up eating 2min Maggi noodles raw was the best! Go to school with a couple packets and sharing with friends. Chicken flavour was our favourite

Now as an adult I follow packet instructions and have a couple slices of buttered bread ready to dip in that delicious juice.

Susan January 30, 2020 - 7:28 PM

Noodles served straight up in our house. No fancy pants additions. Boil the jug, noodles and seasoning in a bowl, vegie packet in the bin! Pour water on, water 2 minutes, wah-la….teenager has happy tummy ?

Maz January 31, 2020 - 6:16 AM

We enjoy ours the quick and simple way boiling water favours and rest.
Quick lunch or snack but there is so many interesting recipes I think I will have to give them a crack
Thanks guys ??

Nicole January 23, 2020 - 3:36 PM

My favourite Maggi Noodle recipe is to cook the noodles according to packet instructions but I refrain from adding the flavour sachet, once ready I add 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, a sprinkle of dried chilli flakes and some hot shredded roasted BBQ chicken. It’s delicious! I’m definitely going to try TOH’s recipe out because I’m sure the kids will love them and being able to freeze them ahead of time appeals to me.

Kim January 26, 2020 - 2:39 PM

Chicken Casserole – cook 2 chopped chicken breasts with a fine diced onion. Slice up 2 carrots. Add chicken, onion and carrots to a casserole dish with one tin of Continental Cream of Chicken soup. Fill tin 1/2 with water and add to dish. Stir to combine. Cook, covered, in oven at 180 c for 1hr, then add 1/2 cup frozen peas, 1/2 cup frozen corn and one packet of broken up Maggi Chicken Noodles (break in packet to create less mess). Cut open the archer and sprinkle contents in. Stir up and put back in the oven, covered, for a further 15 mins. Serve with mashed potatoes. These are great in a toastie the next day too!!

Susan Daly January 23, 2020 - 7:02 PM

OMG this is a brilliant idea! I always add vegetables and chicken or ham to my sons noodles but never thought to make them into these noodle bites! Winner winner chicken dinner! Lol

Kylie January 23, 2020 - 7:58 PM

Dry with half the seasoning packet…. but only really the oriental flavour. Crush them up and then sprinkle with the seasoning

Kareena January 23, 2020 - 9:59 PM

Love them with egg, tomato, ham and cheese cooked through. Also cook with seasoning right from the start and never drain, cook the liquid out, gives it heaps more flavour!

Coralie Potter January 24, 2020 - 10:04 AM

I love baking with 2 minute noodles, i use them instead of lasagna sheets, layer meat of choice some times is left over spag bog mince otherwise i cut up Frankfurts in tomato sauce. Noodles then white cheese sauce. Repeat until you have enough space to top with grated chese. We call it Wiggle bake. Its a little crowd favorite.

Brenda January 24, 2020 - 11:07 AM

I like to add to chicken flavored noodles chopped shallots, dice tomatoes a splash of tamari or soy sauce and some fresh coriander. So yummy ?

Mikayla January 24, 2020 - 11:12 AM

Noodle omelettes are one of my go to meals!! Seriously delicious, bunch of chopped veg added as well. In fact I’m off to make one now!

Kate January 24, 2020 - 11:36 AM

I like to throw in some zucchini noodles (spiralized zucchini) with the two minute noodles while they’re cooking. The two types of noodles mixed together looks pretty but more importantly it’s tasty and my husband loves it!

Kristel Rollings January 24, 2020 - 5:02 PM

My kids have just discovered eating the 2 minute noodle cakes dry like crackers! I keep a few packets in the pantry for our “just too tired to cook, fake-away nights” served with some frozen veggies and fish fingers. ??

Brenda January 25, 2020 - 10:00 AM

Jellyfish pancakes.
Thin batter with eggs, plain flour, salt, finely diced cold (leftover) meat and veggies, (I love all the tasty roasted veggies) Maggi noodles precooked according to the packet (I brake in half so shorter lengths) and herbs//spices to taste (varies every time I like a sumac mix I got from the markets).
Cook in a t hin layer of oil (I use tongs to place some coated noodles first laying then down so have a rounded top and as small amount of batter with spoon to the body top to reinforce the shape. Flip once and serve.

Brittany January 25, 2020 - 10:21 AM

I like to cook them up as instructed, minus the flavour packet, and then throw them into a stirfry or a soup, quick, easy and tasty way to add the carbs.

Amanda January 25, 2020 - 1:08 PM

My daughter uses Oriental or Chicken Maggi noodle and makes them into an omelette with fresh eggs and finely diced veg. 🙂

Cassandra gilham January 31, 2020 - 2:50 PM

Katrina McAliece January 25, 2020 - 1:24 PM

We love to add Maggi 2 minute noodles to all of our stirfries but most of all the kids adore them added to Dads super special savoury mince. Noodles and sachet just add something special.

Candice Dickson January 25, 2020 - 1:26 PM

We love adding crushed up 2 min noodles to stir fry. It’s so delicious and adds a really great textural pop. If we’re having noodles as is, we stir through a dollop of butter, makes them creamy and amps them up!
Will definitely be trying these in the lunchbox this year x

Tanya January 25, 2020 - 1:28 PM

I use Maggi 2 minute noodles in my curry mince, onion, garlic, grated zucchini, grated carrot, ginger, beef or chicken mince, curry powder, chilli, beans, peas, corn, 5 packs of noodles my three children love hot and spicy food.. Also any chance my children get to have 2 minute noodles they love eating cold and hot.. .. Also I cook them toss them in a salad with tomato, lettuce, egg, cucumber, onion along with chicken or ham or bacon.. ??

Christina L January 25, 2020 - 1:34 PM

I boil my noodles then crack a egg in the soup. It cooks straight away and is so delicious.

Rachel Coroneos January 25, 2020 - 1:37 PM

Master 10 loves these, have been a great afternoon treat, but his wanting them in his lunch box. Such a nice change to old sandwiches. Love them in the muffin tins, so easy! ?

Serena Whitbread January 25, 2020 - 5:07 PM

Master 15 cooks the wholegrain noodles as per instructions with out the beef flavour sachet, i save these and use them in bolognese or risotto. He then uses left over chicken or slices up different deli meat cuts, adds sliced spring onions, spinach and capsicum. Then squirts in pizza sauce, mixes it up and adds a sprinkle of cheese. Mmmmmmmm pizza noodles

Sarah February 5, 2020 - 12:30 PM

My 4 year old is an extremely fussy eater, so I peel zucchini and put them through the “zoodle” maker and add his favourite chicken 2 minute noodles, sometimes I do the same thing with carrot, add some chicken meat and put them into an omelette, he never knows and it’s great for getting in some veg and extra carbs

Krissie January 25, 2020 - 5:18 PM

My family LOVE when I make Chow mein using the MAGGI recipe base, and serve with the MAGGI Wholegrain 2 minute noodles. Seriously easy to make and the kids lick their plates clean!!
Thanks for the chance to win MAGGI!

Megan January 25, 2020 - 5:20 PM

Apart from as per packet instructions (which is very popular in our house) I make a noodle omelette with our MAGGI noodles 🙂 I cook a pkt of noodles and drain, then in a separate bowl mix 4 eggs, some milk/or water, and the flavour sachet with a little salt and pepper. I chop the noodles up a little then add the noodles to the egg mixture. Then cook as per regular omelette. This would make a few omelettes 🙂 You could add what ever else you like to this….ham etc… more noodles… more egg… whatever your preference:)

Julia Todd January 25, 2020 - 5:43 PM

My boys just love their 2 minute noodles cooked as per packet instructions but I love to use them in stir fries with lots of veggies.

Bec January 25, 2020 - 7:31 PM

I’m getting so many great ideas from the comments! I guess I’m boring ? I just make noodles the regular way.

Sally Jones January 25, 2020 - 8:48 PM

We do something similar to the noodle cups but into a slice like zucchini slice. Family favourite

Tamara January 25, 2020 - 9:09 PM

Cooked as per instructions, drained. Add butter and mixed vegetables. Yummmmmm

Madeleine January 25, 2020 - 11:27 PM

Lisa W January 26, 2020 - 3:45 PM

Well, I will making Kat’s recipe now with two minute noodles. Miss 8 has been asking for noodles in her lunch box for ages and I was just a bit scared about the hot water…What a great idea!

Deshika January 27, 2020 - 7:45 AM

All throughout my childhood, I’ve been making the maggi as it is, and then mixed in some butter and vegemite. Still do it whenever I get cravings.. The BEST!! ?

Amanda G January 27, 2020 - 9:41 AM

To make your HAM, VEGETABLE AND NOODLE LUNCHBOX BITES of course!!! Such a creative twist to a regular zucchini slice. Thank you for such a fantastic lunch box alternative xx

Nicole January 27, 2020 - 10:50 AM

Maxine Waideman January 27, 2020 - 7:33 PM

We always make noodle pancakes. Cool a few packets of Maggi noodles, drain and and flavouring then add egg cheese frozen peas and corn and a bit of flour to thicken and fry up like piklets. So good hot or cold.

Anita Walters January 27, 2020 - 7:43 PM

I find noodles so versatile and always have several flavours in my cupboard. Great for a lazy meal night or one of our favourites is mince, whatever veggies are left in the fridge, beef noodles, soy sauce, bbq sauce and tomato sauce. Throw it all into a frypan and it’s a meal before shopping day. Best way to use up the veggies and the kids love it.

Joan January 27, 2020 - 7:46 PM

We use the noodles as a replacement for rice in our noodle version of fried rice. Delicious

Brooke craig January 27, 2020 - 8:13 PM

For kids and adults lunchboxes Make rice paper rolls with finely
Sliced veg (whatever you have in the fridge) and a protein cheese, ham, chicken, tuna, cooked egg
Rolling then up in a thin omelette to make egg rolls for lunch boxes is also good and again you can add thinly sliced veg

Jess January 28, 2020 - 8:09 AM

Mum… these look good when I get into my new house I’m making them for sure. When I feel like mixing it up with the noodles I often make them into a cheap but delicious stir fry my girls like honey soy and my husband and I enjoy sweet chilli or I even mix up a pad thai or pad see ew type sauce mmm.

Veronica Christensen January 28, 2020 - 5:24 PM

MAGGI 2-Minute Noodles is my favourite ingredient for when I make my savoury mince, it makes the dish go further so I can feed more people for less.
I Introduce noodles to most of our meals it’s great especially when you have a large family to feed.

Tania H January 28, 2020 - 9:50 PM

Maggi 2 minute noodles are great to add to salads; my biys love it as they think it’s a treat. And they live slurping up noodles

Katie Federici January 29, 2020 - 9:42 AM

We love ours cooked as per instructions then some tin tomatoes, tin corn , chopped celery, and crumble feta. Yummo!

Jane January 29, 2020 - 3:06 PM

Maggie noodles bolognese , great to hide those extra veggies in, great for a lunch alternative to boring cheese sandwiches. And best of all freezes really well. Can also be made into a slice with an add of a egg and baked for 20mins.

Natalie Gray January 30, 2020 - 12:01 AM

My 6yo daughter begs me for 2minute noodles EVERY SINGLE DAY! I didn’t realise you could use them in so many ways! We just add them to our stirfry for extra deliciousness!! I can’t wait to try some of these ideas out! Thanks so much for posting this story!! Xx

Nicole January 30, 2020 - 11:16 AM

The only way I make my noodles is old fashioned way on the stove in a pot of warm water with three bags of 2 minute noodles, I add extra to give more flavour I add one chicken stock cube and a chicken and corn stock and to finish off with some black pepper. Always gets polished off by my kids ??

Kacey January 30, 2020 - 7:36 PM

Two words: JAFFLE MAKER! It’s been a favourite of mine for years – prepare the Maggi Chicken Noodles as per packet instructions, then drain most of the water. Add the noodles onto the bread/toastie, and pop into the jaffle maker. My personal favourite is noodles, cheese and bbq sauce.

Kathy January 30, 2020 - 7:41 PM

2 minute noodles – I chop up lettuce or bok choy with spring onions & whatever is in fridge that goes with this quick meal incl Chilli flakes seasoning with an egg on top delicious

Allarna January 30, 2020 - 7:45 PM

I very boring i like to use 2 minute noodles in the original packet instruction way as a weekend lunch when we are all sick of sandwiches. It’s our favourite go to easy Saturday lunch.

Kate January 30, 2020 - 9:13 PM

We simply like to make them according to the instructions on the packet, drain and then while warm add grated craft cheese. Makes an excellent, quick and simple afternoon tea on those cold winters days.

Chelcie January 31, 2020 - 7:29 AM

Okay, wanna hear something little gross but also a little life changing??

I cook my two min noodles as per usual. Drain them and chuck them in a bowl.

This is where the magic of maggi 2 min noodles comes in.

I add 1/4 of a cup of tasty cheddar and a little splosh of soy sauce. Mix that up good. Flavour sachets are optional but add a bit of shazam.

Your two min noodles become creamy, cheesy and delightful.

This little trick got me through hungry nights as a teen when my parents went out and I had to fend for myself. Now it’s a nostalgic favorite.

Super simple in my house, I’ve always eaten them like this since I was young and now my kids like them this way too! Cook the noodles then add grated cheese and mix through till the cheese is melted then a drizzle of tomato sauce over the top. ??

We crunch up our Maggi Multigrain 2 Minute Noodles, mix in (different combinations) Peas & Corn/ Carrot & Zucchini/ Mushrooms & Spinach…Cook for 2 Minutes… Drain & pop Scoops onto Ready Made Pastry and INTO THE PIEMAKER!!!
The kids call them Surprise Noodly Pies as they never know which combination of vegies they’ll get in their Noodly Pie!!!

Jess January 30, 2020 - 9:23 PM

My son loves them dry for lunch at school or afternoon snack hot ? he loves them!

Lauren Wilson January 31, 2020 - 7:51 AM

We love Maggi Noodles in our Mee Goreng. Top with a fried egg and a chicken drumstick it takes us back to Bali in an instant….
I personally also love them natural with Parmesan Cheese on top! Yum!!!

Laura Jahnke January 31, 2020 - 12:05 PM

My favourite quick kiddie dinner is maggi noodles, frozen veg and some bbq chicken (or sausages) all mixed together. They always eat the whole thing and it takes me 5 minutes to whip together!

Nicole January 31, 2020 - 12:26 PM

We go camping often and the kids like to cook 2 minute noodles in the teapot billy – quick, easy to drain and delicious!

Debbie Lee January 31, 2020 - 2:17 PM

I’ve realized we are quite dull in comparison as we usually just add some egg. This gives us some great ideas for the never ending supply of maggi noodles we have 🙂

Sara Alexander January 31, 2020 - 3:01 PM

My favourite is mixing them with some whisked eggs, cheese, ham & tomato to make noodle omelettes. My mum used to make them when I was younger and got the recipe from her mum which had been passed down from her mum! Safe to say my kids will be doing the same recipe for their kids. Writing this has made me hungry, noodle omelette for dinner!

We love hot beef or chicken Maggi noodles in fresh bread & butter! Yummm. And have made a similar type of veggie & noodle slice several times. I have a nice thick chicken & corn soup recipe with noodles to try as soon as I have some leftover chicken!

Vivette February 1, 2020 - 10:43 PM

My kids love Tuna noodles, so I just make up the noodles normally drain the water just leaving a little bit then add the sachets and the tuna and add steamed veggies to the side because you can’t mix them.

Lyndsey February 2, 2020 - 1:50 AM

If cooking them for my noodle obsessed daughter I add about a 1/4 of a packet of roast chicken cuppa soup to the saucepan to make them a little more soupy for her.
If it’s just me I like to eat them uncooked with no seasoning as a snack.

Narelle Schwartz February 2, 2020 - 7:40 AM

I like using maggi noodles in stir fry and chow mein.
I like adding egg and bacon to already cooked noodles. I love adding them into my home chicken soup. And eating them made normally. Very versatile.

Rachel read February 2, 2020 - 8:43 AM

We call them noodle surprise!! Cook noodles according to packet, then add ham, an egg and grated cheese!! Mix all together then eat!! Kids love it, so yum ?

Rebecca February 2, 2020 - 10:36 AM

In our house, we simply follow the instructions on the packet.
But now after reading the way everyone else serves up their Maggi Noodles, I’m inspired to do so much more ?

Krista February 2, 2020 - 9:18 PM

Noodles are my fav never been a big rice or mash person, so I have noddles as side dish or in stir fry’s ect and when growing up my partners would always get me too eat whatever as long as there was maggi noddles involved lol now my youngest son is the same left over night is always “can’t I have noddles”

Polly Burnett February 2, 2020 - 11:53 PM

I fry off some mushrooms, garlic and shallots and then a handful of cherry tomatoes in a little olive oil. Make up the Maggi ramen noodles and combine with the above ingredients. Sometimes a little Parmesan on top. Delicious!

Loz Davies February 3, 2020 - 7:20 PM

We have been making our Maggi Noodles as per cooking instructions and adding with Asian flavoured mince and a variety of grated vegies to lettuce cups to make Ozzie San Chow Bow whilst its sunmer but in winter will add similar mixture along with puff pastry to pop into piemaker. This way numerous variations of meats, sauces, herbs, spices and vegies can be used…variations are endless. We also enjoy dry as a snack or in a variety of soups as anything goes with Maggi Noodles.

Jessaica February 3, 2020 - 9:07 PM

Yummo! My family love Magi noodles cooked with egg, peas, carrot, corn and some soy sauce with garlic bread in the side ?

Adeline February 4, 2020 - 12:15 AM

NOODLE PIZZA: Cooked Maggi noodles dunked in egg and cheese, Baked and topped with pepperoni, olives and more cheese – my kids always say YES PLEASE 🙂

Cheryl Clarke February 4, 2020 - 12:42 PM

We love to cook our noodles in hot water than drain them and add the chicken flavour satchel and butter. YUMMO!!

Patricia C C February 4, 2020 - 4:43 PM

Hi! A perfect light lunch for me and for my son to take to school are Healthy chicken noodle rice paper wraps! In each wrapped up parcel I put: cooked Maggi 2 minute noodles, julienned veggies: carrots, cucumber and red capsicum, shredded chicken and iceberg lettuce! I lightly drizzle it with honey and squeeze a bit of lime juice too! They’re easy to assemble, wrap, pack and eat!! It is absolutely delicious especially in Summer and definitely beats the usual sandwich!:)

Tracy Fisher February 4, 2020 - 10:59 PM

2 minute noodles are a great way to turn left overs into a new meal. I like to boil the noodles and flavour satchet with peas and corn and then add left over chicken or salmon for an easy dinner. My toddler loves noodles so eats it all up.

Eliza Cholmondeley February 4, 2020 - 4:46 PM

In a stir fry!!Lots of vegetables,either chicken or tofu,with some sesame oil,oyster sauce,garlic & a hint of chilli!Yum!

Jade O February 5, 2020 - 11:43 AM

I always crunch up a packet and combine them in my veggie fritters, they are especially good when the edges go crispy!

Michelle February 5, 2020 - 12:00 PM

We buy the Mi Goreng Soy and mild spice 2 minute noodles… place amount of noodles for serving in bowl of boiling water and cover with plate on top. Add chopped bacon, fry with noodle flavouring packets and added splash of water. Add spring chopped broccoli and spring onions. Fry til broccoli is just cooked. Drain and add cooked noodles with a splash of Ketjap Manis. Kids love it!!!!

Melissa February 5, 2020 - 12:42 PM

I use Maggi noodles to make a super fast (but delicious!) Chicken and Sweet Corn soup! A supermarket roast chicken shredded, a few tins of both creamed corn and corn kernels, liquid chicken stock and the Maggi chicken flavour sachets. Towards the end, I add in the noodle blocks and stir in some egg. Add salt and pepper and it’s done! On the table in 20mins and our whole family loves it.

zoie bragg February 5, 2020 - 1:41 PM

I love to cook my maggie noodles on the stove and drain all juice out and keep that little packet of flavouring for the kids. Then i add chopped up ham, and grated cheese and, a little tiny bit of soy sauce and a tiny bit of sweet chilli sauce. mix and serve

Lisa Rangott February 5, 2020 - 1:55 PM

On our super lazy nights (once a week) usually Monday’s after a busy day of school and swimming lessons. I use wholegrain noodles and a frozen peas, corn and carrots. Chuck them all in a saucepan and in no time the kids are eating nutritious wholegrain and veggies.

Georgi February 5, 2020 - 2:16 PM

Savoury mince for a super easy weeknight meal, mince, onion, garlic, grated carrot, grated zucchini and the 2 minute noodles with the flavouring. Yum! And the kids love it ?

Kerry La Motte February 5, 2020 - 2:31 PM

Just as they are, hot noodles in chicken broth …. yummo ?

Rachel Lee February 5, 2020 - 2:31 PM

I’d love to try them in a stir fry! Instead of egg noddles or rice – honey soy garlic chicken with lots of veggies served on the bed of noodles. I think my kids would love it.

Amy February 5, 2020 - 2:34 PM

They are all but an essential staple in our house. We enjoy them mixed with mash potato (for when my son isn’t overly hungry or well) and love mixing them through stews and mince meals, just for that little extra filling of the hungry bellies.

Nicole February 5, 2020 - 3:01 PM

I like to serve use them in chow min. Yum

Bev February 5, 2020 - 4:12 PM

Quick great tasting dinner. Woolworths SAN Choy Bau, mince irked as per instructions, steam fresh vegies, two minutes in micro, and the Maggie noodles S per pot in struction. Mix all together ce cooked, only takes a few minutes to Russell up this dinner, not expensive, easy to digest and very very yummy

Stacy February 5, 2020 - 4:57 PM

We love to use these Maggi noodles in chicken and veggie soup – seasoning and all! It helps add some texture and also bulks it up to keep bellies full for longer! ?

Melissa February 5, 2020 - 6:06 PM

I cook our noodles and add them to savoury mince. My son has also taken to eating them raw which makes a great snack to put in his lunch box for something different.

Denise February 5, 2020 - 6:29 PM

Off pay week we have Poor Mans Fancy Noodles – 1 packet per person of Maggi Noodles beef, frozen peas and corn, cheese, sour cream and topped with shallots.

Clare Kennedy February 5, 2020 - 8:22 PM

An easy salad recipe uses:
Cooked 2min noodles (no flavouring needed), pesto, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, corn kernels, snow peas, tin of tuna, mixed through with some grated cheese – so yum!

Danielle February 5, 2020 - 8:52 PM

My littlest loves Maggi noodles. We cook them as per instructions and add a little butter. Just plain in our house. But am loving all the ideas of what to do with them, can’t wait to try some ?.

Marnie Campbell February 6, 2020 - 12:53 AM

We like making a Pho type soup. We cook the noodles first then add the flavour sachet at tge end (oriental flavour being our favourite). Once it’s in tue bowl we add some cooked chicken, spinach, boiled egg, grated carrot, bean sprouts and mushroom. It is a favourite and the lids love being able to choose what they want in it

Jenny February 6, 2020 - 11:40 AM

I’ll be trying these soon! I like to use the noodles to make a beef chow mein using the Maggi recipe base.

Michelle February 6, 2020 - 12:07 PM

Butter, garlic, oyster sauce and garlic mmmmmmmm yummo

Sarah McKenzie February 11, 2020 - 11:34 AM

As a kid, I always boiled the kettle, put my noodles in a normal bowl, poured boiling water on them and placed a plate on top to seal in the heat. I then cooked my toast, drained the water through the bowl/plate, added the flavour, then used the plate to butter my toast on! I have successfully passed this trait onto my 11 year old! Although he needs help draining the water 🙂

Cassandra lawler February 14, 2020 - 1:07 PM

I was given a salad recipe from a friend! No idea where it originated from, but it is soooo popular everyone asks for the recipe when I take it to bbqs 🙂

Cabbage, flaked almonds, sesame seeds, celery and 2 packs noodles, keep the flavour sachets to make a dressing which has oil and sugar in it, it’s absolutely Devine and so quick and easy to prepare ?

Julie February 18, 2021 - 9:49 PM

I just boil the kettle to make mine, toss in a mug or bowl and done in no time at all. Simple seasoning with some cheese 🙂
