Egg Foo Yung (For 2) With Oriental Sauce

"From Alberta Egg Producers website. This tastes a lot like our favorite Chinese restaurant's Egg Foo Yung, so I was thrilled to find out how easy it is to make at home! I usually double the amount of sauce, and I like to add a touch of oyster sauce to the sauce sometimes, too. For a complete Chinese experience, we usually eat this with Recipe #228704."

  1. Just the the chinese. Great!!!!!!!!!!! Co-workers loved it. I will b making this again. Very easy to put together. I used chinese fancy mixed vegetables.
  2. These were great! I would probably double the sauce. I am not a big mushroom fan so I used water chesnuts instead.. which I would not recommend unless you use a small amount of them, they overwhelmed me. That's what I get for messing with a recipe!<br/>And recipe for two, they weren't kidding! I used low sodium soy and beef broth. So yummy! Might add a tiny bit of sesame oil and garlic next time.
  3. So good! Why have I never tried egg foo young before!
  4. This is as close to REAL Egg Foo Young that I've loved since childhood!
  5. This is an excel ant recipe I love it


  1. I made this egg foo young years ago when my niece took Mandarin in high school. Her teacher thought I was Chinese. I am making this now with vegetables and chicken that is cooked. They do not know how to make this in Phoenix, AZ in restaurants. I used diced onion,small piece of chopped green pepper, 2 mushrooms, some yellow squash and canned bean sprouts and 1 scallion cut up. I had a lot of egg yolks left from a recipe that used whites and substituted egg beaters. After cooking per the instructions I used Campbells Golden Mushroom Soup with addition of soy sauce to taste. Haven't tried Oyster sauce. This to me is a better brown gravy than using chicken or beef broth. Tasted more like NY Chinese!


After graduating from college in spring of 2007, I am now working as a Traffic Engineer. Now that I have free time instead of homework, I've been trying all sorts of new recipes that are more involved. I am always trying to get healthy food into my husband and 7-year old step-son. I am slowly wearing on them, both of them will finally eat vegetables with every dinner. Both of them like helping in the kitchen, especially on mini pizza nights! We have a 4-year old male lab/golden retriever mix and when the two "boys" get going, look out! I participated in my in-law's family Christmas party this year by bringing almond roca. It was a huge hit and everyone wants it again next get-together! I will definately bring it again, but I don't want to give the recipe out to them because it is so easy and I like them thinking I worked by butt off!! A cooking tragedy I once had in high school: I was making some pesto for my mom and I to have with lunch. At the time, I didn't know the difference between a clove and a bulb of garlic and I ended up putting about half a bulb of garlic in the recipe then stopped because I though "two whole bulbs would be a lot"... the recipe read 2 cloves ... Needless to say, we had bad breath for days and I never forgot what a clove was!! I haven't tried all of my posted recipes, but if I posted them I thought they sounded good and figured I should give someone else the chance to try them before I get to them. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
