  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the bean sprouts, shrimp, eggs, mushrooms, scallions and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Heat a deep skillet over high heat until 1 or 2 drops of water bubble when sprinkled in. Add oil and turn heat back to Medium-High. Pour in 1/2 cup of egg mixture into pan. Push cooked egg up over shrimp with a spatula to form a patty. Fry until golden brown, turning once, about 4 minutes.
  3. Repeat with remaining egg mixture. If you need to, add more oil. Keep patties warm.
  4. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine chicken broth, soy sauce, 1/4 teaspoon salt and white pepper to taste. Bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch and water; stir into broth mix. Cook and stir until thickened (about 10 seconds). Pour over patties.

Simply DELICIOUS! The sauce is wonderfully flavorful and the soy sauce is not over powering the flavors as some sauces do. I left out the extra salt as I don't like super salty foods but it is s...

These were good, they make a healthly lunch or dinner. I added a little cornstarch to the eggs as another reviewer suggested, but they still ran a little. I also added a lot of extra soy sauce t...

I 'm going to rate this one actually a 3.75 :-) I think it does need some more tweaking but is a good start. I added in some more veggies and garlic and a bit of cornstarch to the egg mixture. I...

I made this recipe, upon my husbands request. Our family of 5 loved it! I omitted the bean sprouts(didn't have any)and the salt from both the eggs and sauce. I used ham rather than shrimp, only ...

The egg patties were really good, but I thought the sauce tasted odd. I might have put too much pepper in, though. I'll try this again sometime. Edited Later: I tried this again a couple tim...
