I love to order Egg Foo Yong when I go out for Chinese food. This is an easy recipe, that is quite tasty! Feel free to add about 1/4 C of meat like chicken, pork or shrimp. However, I prefer the vegetable version.

I didn't think this deserved poor reviews. My girls and I really enjoyed this. Egg foo yong usually has a hard time holding together, it's all part of making it. Adding thickening agents such as flour or cornstarch would completely ruin the recipe. Egg foo yong is not known for its "zippy" taste, and we thought this was good for egg foo yong. Also, I didn't use hardly any oil, just a few teaspoons so they wouldn't stick. Something else I found helpful was to put a lid on them while they cooked before I flipped them the first time, this made them easer to flip because they were firmer.
