Soy sauce
Fish sauce
Maggi
Hot dog slices
Shrimps
Sardines
Ham
Leftover chicken/turkey
Green onions
Mushrooms
Chiles
Cabbage

One thing I almost always add is an egg. Right when you take the pot off the flame just break an egg in it and quickly stir it to break the yolk. Don't add it while boiling or it becomes tiny bits, must wait until the hot water is still.

Also, try visiting your local Asian market to see what they've got. It might cost a bit more but you can get ones with rice noodles (like in pho), or 3-4 seasoning packets including chili oil, or fish/chicken style rice porridge, or glass noodles, etc. some of those Korean style noodle bowls are fantastic.

My favorite is calamansi, oil, soy sauce and fish sauce with scallions and shrimp.

A poached egg broken over the noodles. I remove them liquid and serve them slightly al dente.

Health isn't a concern for me (even though it really should be), I just never liked the taste of those packets. There's better seasoning and soup bases to use. You can make a lot of tasty and overall healthy meals around the incredibly cheap noodles.

My comment was made somewhat tongue in cheek. I actually do add ingredients other than those packages to many things including the noodles: I add soy sauce, green onions, cilantro, ginger if I happen to have it on hand, sometimes a little basil and garlic.
