So I recently had a reader contact me and ask if I had an Egg Foo Yung recipe. I told her that I did not but that I love Egg Foo Yung and if I had time I would create one. Well that was it! I could not stop thinking about Egg Foo Yung. I mean what is not to love about fluffy eggs filled with onions, mushrooms, celery bean sprouts and chicken and topped with the most incredible gravy. This wonderful recipe works well for breakfast or dinner!
I mean good luck not licking your plate. This recipe is just that good. Now you may or may not know this about me but my list of ingredients may be off the norm sometimes but I do what tastes good! If is unorthodox for a traditional recipe and it makes the recipe taste better you can bet your last dollar that I am going to include it. Seems to keep me on the edge and makes my true New Orleans Cajun lovers feisty. I love feisty people.
I often mix my ethnic dishes, Asian & American, Cajun & Asian, Mexican & Cajun!! It is all about what tastes the best! Right? This recipe is really quick to pull together and tastes plate licking good every time….that is if no one is looking!!
