Egg Foo Young

~*~ Egg Foo Young ~*~
This is something I made for my Dad mostly (the first time). He had been wanting it for years. Since I didn't have the things I needed to make it on his birthday, I made it the day after his birthday for breakfast. It was a day of hard work, since that night we had a feast of Asian food planned. :D It was really easy to make. A whole lot easier then I thought it would be, & I really enjoyed making it. I plan to make it again sometime! :D

The Patty Batter
8 ounces fresh bean sprouts, rinsed and drained
1 cup cooked small shrimp
8 eggs, beaten
1 (4.5 ounce) can sliced mushrooms
2 large green onions, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
ground white pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
salt (as wanted)

Note: When I made this I didn't really go in order of what the recipe told me to in the directions. I made up the egg batter stuff, then did some prep work on the sauce. While the sauce did it's heating thing I made the egg patties.

In a mixing bowl, combine the bean sprouts, shrimp, eggs, mushrooms, scallions and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix thoroughly.

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.

Repeat with remaining egg mixture. If you need to, add more oil. Keep patties warm.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine chicken broth, soy sauce, 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.

I fount this recipe on a website, but changed it a little after trying it the way they said to.
