Egg foo young, egg foo yong or egg fu yung is an American Chinese omelette dish which consists of lightly beaten eggs, vegetables, and meat or seafood then is served with gravy. It was derived form a Chinese recipe called Fu Yung Egg Slices. An oriental take to the omelette which for me is more satisfying as the flavours are a bit lighter but ingredients make it more of a complete meal.
8 medium sized eggs
1 cup prawns
1/2 cup corn kernels
1/2 cup green peas
handful of bean sprouts
1/2 cup spring onions, sliced
1 cup light brown gravy
freshly ground black pepper
- In a mixing bowl add eggs and lightly beat it, do not beat too hard until bubbles appear you just need to mix the yolk and white together.
- Add all of the ingredients except for the oil and gravy in the bowl and mix.
- Prepare a really hot wok, add oil then pour the egg mix. Once egg base is cooked and solid flip it over once. Remove from pan then serve with gravy on top and chopped spring onions.
