We added cut up left over pork roast. If you add a tablespoon of cornstarch, the eggs do not spread as much. Very good!

This was great...just like we had at a restaurant! I thickened a can of chicken stock, garlic, and parsley for gravy. Using a can of Chinese veggies was easier than chopping everything, though. Very tasty!

I tried this recipe on a whim without any real expectations. I was pleasantly surprised! I revised the vegetables to my liking, but kept everything else the same, made some gravy for on top and YUM! Just like my favorite restaurant.

This is a great recipe! The quickness is really fast, and the Kid Friendly Rating is very good.

This was great. The celery, onion, and especially the bean spouts keep the calories down. There is no cheese, so it is extremely low fat. My kids looked at it with a great deal of suspicion, but wolfed it down after a tenative taste. We found it was best with a bit more salt and some garlic/chili sauce to give it a bit of kick. The bites with more fresh ginger were also better, so in the future, I will probably add more. I've also considered some fresh garlic. Give it a try for a great low-calorie start to your day.

My kids' first encounter with egg foo yung, and they loved it! Looked elsewhere on the Internet for a brown sauce recipe to serve over the omelets. Hit the spot! (Next time, will add more beansprouts -- we love beansprouts!)

Come on. Be honest. Isn't there just something inherently FUN about fixing something that is fun to SAY? Anyway, as three added bonuses, this was easy, quick, AND tasty. We had this with Thai chili sauce. Nice blend of supper/breakfast tastes. So, what would that make it? Supfast?

Excellent dish. Some think it will have a strong onion taste but it did not.
