Egg Foo Young Premium PD Recipe

Egg Foo Young is an American dish resembling an omelet, packed with Asian veggies and swimming in flavorful dark brown gravy, with culinary roots from Shanghai and a Cantonese name. One of my favorite childhood memories was when my mother would take an occasional night off from cooking and Dad would pick up Chinese takeout. Egg Foo Young was my mother’s favorite and was always part of the carry-out order of multiple dishes shared among our family of six. These deep-fried pillow-like patties were filled with sprouts and tiny morsels of BBQ pork, layered in rich brown gravy, and served over hot rice.

  1. I am pretty sure I made my patties too big but they still turned out great! This was easily the best Asian recipe I have made from the PD site. The “egg” patty reminds me of an indian dish called Pudla, which ironically enough can be made PD! Overall, a winning dish and once you prepped the veggies, the rest of it comes together rather quickly. I will be making this again 🙂

  2. Great recipe! I couldn’t believe how much the flour mixture resembled egg! I think I may not have flattened the patties enough before baking because the middle was a little doughy and wet but I did get that nice dark crust on the bottom! Another winner Thank you!
