We loved it!!! I fried mine in about 1 1/2 inches of oil and they were great!!! I just used a can of Chinese veggies drained. No salt because the sauce was salty. As each patty was done I put they in the sauce to keep them warm. Thank you so much for the recipe egg foo yong is my favorite can't wait to make it again!!!!

I am a huge fan of egg foo young! I made shrimp egg foo young and it turned out great. The only thing I would change is the sauce, I just didn't care for the flavor.

Wow this was just want my taste buds wanted. I had to sub other veggies (celery, cabbage, broccoli) but it was GREAT. Very easy. I added a little flour to the batter for more puffiness.
