Easy Egg Foo Yung

Easy Egg Foo Yung created by Starman5

This recipe uses a can of Chop Suey vegetables and a can of mixed Chinese vegetables instead of individual cans of bean sprouts, water chestnuts, celery, and bamboo shoots. No more partial cans of these leftover when you use this recipe. Very convenient.

ingredients

  • 7 eggs
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chop suey vegetables (I use La Choy)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can fancy mixed-chinese vegetables (LaChoy)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • oil based cooking spray

directions

  • Lightly beat the eggs with the soy sauce and pepper in a medium size bowl.
  • Drain the Chop Suey vegetables, then pick out the bamboo shoots, celery, and water chestnuts and dice into ¼ inch pieces or smaller.
  • Add all of the Chop Suey vegetables to the bowl and mix.
  • Heat an 6-inch skillet (I prefer a cast iron skillet) to a medium high heat, spray the bottom and sides with a vegetable oil spray. If you prefer a thinner pancake, use a 10-inch skillet.
  • Pour one fourth of the mixture (about 3/4 cup) into the skillet and cook 6-8 minutes or until bottom is browned (if using a 10-inch skillet, cook for 4 to 5 minutes).
  • Carefully flip and cook 5-6 minutes or until bottom is browned (if using a 10-inch skillet, cook for 2 to 3 minutes).
  • Respray the skillet with the cooking oil and repeat the cooking steps for the rest of the mixture.
  • Serve plain or with with Easy Egg Foo Yung Sauce.

    Awesome recipe thank you, it is sooo good. I changed NOTHING.

    This is great! After spending $10+ for egg foo yung recently at a restaurant and previously trying to cook it myself with buying all the ingredients individually (I even made 4 inch ring molds from a coffee can), this makes total sense. Plus tonight at Walmart they had the LaChoy veggies on sale for 50 cents for a 28 oz can. I bought 2 and may go back for more. Yay!

    Please correct the directions to include the mixed vegetables, instead of adding the chop suey vegetables twice.

    It was great! Even cold it was yummy. I would leave out the salt though.. not really needed. thanks again!

    Excellent texture and flavor. Easy to make, but takes a while to cook four individual patties. The next time I make this recipe, I will cook it it a large iron skillet as one big patty.
