  5. Preheat oven to 350. Turn the heat in the non stick pan back to medium high. Sprinkle the top with the cold separated ramen noodles, pour the eggs over all and stir so that everything is mixed together. Cook on the element for about 2 minutes until it all seems to be coming together and then finish in a 350 oven for 20 minutes. 
  6. Let rest five minutes before slicing.
