Like most bad/great ideas, the ramen pot pie came into fruition at a drive-thru.

While ordering a chicken pot pie from KFC, I was trying to figure out what to do with the last bit of sea urchin I had at home. I wanted to throw it into the chicken pot pie, but was heavily advised against it by my friends. Too rich, they said.

I did it anyways.

It got me thinking though, what other savory foods could be great in pot pie form. Thus, the Ramen Pot Pie was born. While waiting for the cashier to ring up my order, I quickly shot a text to my publisher to see what he thought:

With the green light, it was simply a matter of figuring out how to execute such a heavy dish. Luckily, this wasn't my first rodeo.
