Egg Foo Young Recipe – a bit like your favorite Chinese takeout dish but easily made at home! 

One staple you’ll always find in my refrigerator is eggs— we use them on a day to day for breakfast, lunch and even dinner (see recipe below!).

Now, I can’t claim this as an authentic Egg Foo Young recipe, but it does tastes delicious! I really like that you simply can swap in additional veggies and protein counting on what you've got in your fridge or pantry.

For this particular Egg Foo Young recipe I used shrimp, but it can even as easily be made with pork, chicken, beef, tofu or maybe all veggie!

HOMEMADE EGG FOO YOUNG RECIPE

INGREDIENTS :

  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 pound cooked shrimp chopped
  • green onion chopped (for garnish)
  • Beef gravy I used jarred
  • Vegetable oil

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. In a large skillet, saute onions, mushrooms and bean sprouts in vegetable oil. Add shrimp.
  2. Stir in cornstarch and soy sauce.
  3. Add mixture to a bowl with 4 beaten eggs. Stir gently. The ratio should equal more veggies than eggs and should not be too runny. If it is, add additional sauteed vegetables or protein.
  4. In a clean skillet, add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Add ¼ Egg Foo Young mixture to pan, formed into a pancake shape. Fry Egg Foo Young until the bottom is firm enough to flip.
  5. Cook the other side until egg is firm. Place on a paper towel to absorb oil until ready to serve.
  6. Top with gravy and green onions. Serve with a side of soy sauce.
