Egg Foo Yong

1 cup ham cooked
1/2 cup onions chopped
1 cup mung bean sprouts canned, drained
4 tablespoons scallions, spring or green onions chopped tops
1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari
1 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 x vegetable oil for deep frying
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon molasses
1 teaspoon soy sauce, tamari
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water cold


Put meat, onion, sprouts, green onion tops, soy sauce, and salt in a bowl; mix well. Stir the eggs lightly into the mixture. Use a deep-bowl ladle to spoon out the mixture and lower into the hot oil. Tip the ladle at once to release the omelets. Let them fry until they rise to the top. Turn each to brown the other side. Lift out with a large slotted spoon. Serve on a hot dish covered with a little of the sauce (below). Serve additional soy sauce separately. Egg Foo Young Variations Chicken Foo Yong: Use cooked chicken or turkey instead of ham or pork.
