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


  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.
