With a few simple ingredients from the pantry and fridge, you can have a plate of this mouthwatering Gochujang Noodles with Bacon and Scallions dish. Make this simple noodle recipe in 30 minutes or less!

I have a few dishes that I regularly make that are pretty much a spin-off of a base recipe and this is one of them. Similar to my Spicy Soy Garlic Butter Noodles with Beef, this gochujang noodle dish uses kitchen staples. I almost always have bacon hanging out in the freezer and is a quick-cooking source of protein. I love making this quick noodle dish with pork belly as well but since bacon is easier to find, we’re going with bacon for this post.
