Good thing Shia La Beouf spent 25 hours in a New York City jail for acting like an asshat at a Broadway musical a couple years ago, or else the world may never have had Prison Ramen: Recipes and Stories from Behind Bars. And, more importantly, Shia's recipe for Egg Ramen Salad Sandwiches.

Clifton Collins Jr. co-starred with LaBeouf in 2015's Man Down. He released Prison Ramen with childhood friend and ex-con and Gustavo Alvarez shortly thereafter. The book is an anthology of inmates' tales of life behind bars paired with 65 of the best meals they've ever concocted from Ramen noodles. Such as:

Ramen Goulash. Black Bean Ramen. Onion Tortilla Ramen Soup. The Jailhouse Hold Burrito. Slash's J-Walking Ramen (yes, that Slash). And Orange Porkies, chili Ramen with white rice, half a bag of pork skins, and orange-flavored punch. Pretty much anything the prisoners can get at their commissaries, and you can get at the gas station convenience store.

The stories that accompany each recipe are as organic and undiluted as the dishes are processed and stuffed with preservatives.

Prison Ramen

complements its quirkiness in eating with the "scared-straight reality" of prison life.
