I was asked to Post My recipe of Egg Foo Young, By a Fellow JAP member.
This Looks like a lot of Ingredients, Don't be intimidated.
These are really easy, and very tasty. . . along side a plate of Fried rice, and You have a filling meal.
You mix all the ingredients in a bowl and drop by 1/2 cups measurements in to fy pan. that simple

These are Fairly close to what is served in Chinese restraunts out West, where I have worked Years ago..
