This is a great egg foo yung recipe - I've never had much luck getting the patties to stay together, but these shaped up very nicely. I did use one more egg than in the recipe. I used the bean sprouts, which are fast becoming a favorite vegetable. Definately a keeper recipe - thanks!
This ranks among the best Egg Foo Young I've ever had. I made it with small thawed shrimp which I left whole. I didn't have water chestnuts so I used celery. The water chestnuts would have been great in this dish. The chicken brooth sauce was just delicious! Next time I'm going to make this vegetarian with sauteed mushrooms. I served this dish with rice and stir fry broccoli. I had some problems keeping it in round pattie shapes but think next time I'll use a small rd. frypan instead of my big electric one. Thank you Lorac. My family is still raving.
I have never liked Egg Foo Yung from restaurants, but my husband has started making this recipe, and I love it. He doesn't mix the meat and veggies into the eggs, but pours the eggs into the pan and drops the meat/veggie mixture into the top of the "pancake" before he flips it. It is always beautiful and delicious.
