Chinese New Year 2019 – Egg Foo Yung

Gung Hay Fat Choy! 2019  is the Chinese New Year of the Pig.

We love classic Chinese American dishes from our local Chinese take out place. Over the years I have learned how to make many of my own homemade versions of Chinese American meals from recipes I’ve collected. One of my favorite dishes is Egg Foo Yung. I thought I’d share my recipe for those who would like to make this dish at home.
