Basic deep-fried egg foo yung

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Eggs
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Cooked meat or seafood
1½ cup Vegetables
\N \N Oil for deep-frying

1. Follow steps 1 and 2 of "Basic Pan-Fried Egg Foo Yung". (You may, if you wish, not beat the eggs first but stir them in with the meat and vegetables until well mixed.)

2. Heat oil until it foams (it should be about 2-½ inches deep).

Carefully drop egg mixture into oil with a ladle, tipping the ladle to release the omelets. (For a 3-inch omelet, allow ½ cup of egg mixture; for a smaller one, ¼ cup.)

3. Let omelet rise to the top (this will take about 2 minutes). Baste with hot oil to brown. Then flip omelet over, using a spoon and spatula, or 2 spoons, and baste to brown the other side. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper toweling. Keep warm.

4. Repeat process until egg mixture is used up. Serve omelets either plain, sprinkled lightly with soy sauce, or with "Egg Foo Yung Sauce #1/#2").
