Egg Foo YUM!

The line up includes 1 bag or can of bean sprouts, 1 small can water chestnuts, diced, 1 stalk of celery, 2 green onions, diced, 4 eggs, 4 fresh mushrooms, diced or 1 small can of mushrooms, oil, gravy or sauce mix for topping. I can thought of this recipe last night and realized I hadn't had it in a long time. It sounded so good, so I decided to make it for supper for myself and post it for you. If you like egg foo yung from take-out, try my version, I think you will find it a really good substitute.
Drop 4 eggs into a large mixing bowl, whisk to break yolks before adding additional ingredients.

Chop up for fresh mushrooms and add to the eggs or 1 small can of mushroom pieces.
Mix in 1 stalk of celery, chopped.
Add in 2 green onions, chopped.

Add in 1 package, fresh bean sprouts from the produce department or 1 can of bean sprouts.
Add one small can of water chestnuts, chopped, 1 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, mix well and get ready to cook up some egg foo yung.
Heat a couple of Tablespoons of oil in a non-stick skillet, place temperature on medium high heat.
Pour about 1/2 cup or a little less measure into a hot saucepan, let it cook for a few minutes or until set then flip and continue cooking until done, you can flip again if needed. It doesn't take long, the veggies can stay a little crunchy for texture.
This is really good stuff, sorry that is probably a local area item, but it is manufactured in Springfield and makes killer cashew sauce for cashew chicken. Again if you don't have this just make a brown sauce using either beef base, gravy mix and a small amount of hoiesn sauce, located in the Asian isle.
Just follow the directions on the container, it's like 3 Tablespoons to 1 cup of water. If you don't have this kind of mix locally, you can use brown gravy with a small amount of hoiesn sauce added.

Why pay for take-out when you can make this in minutes. Probably the hardest thing to do is to remember to buy the bean sprouts and water chestnuts and gravy mix the next time you go to the store. This recipe makes a lot, at least 2 good-sized pancakes for 3-4 people, depending on the size and hunger of your people. This is a very low cost meal idea, pick up a package of frozen egg rolls to throw in the oven and you have supper ready. Have a wonderful evening. Love to you all.
