Foo Yong Dan / Chinese Onion & Shrimps Omelette

I like this simple Chinese style of omelette, we call it as 'Foo Yong Dan", and I would said every Chinese mom also know how to cook this. I especially love the sweetness from the onions, usually I will add a lot.

Your omelets sound really appealing. I love shrimp and egg combined together and your recipe sounds especially good. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Since I don't care for eggs much, I am always looking for ways to eat them without tasting them too much; this omelette is fantastic! I want to try Chinese sausages, I have never had them before!

A Year on the Grill said...

help help help... I want to make this this week...

BUT, what is Chinese sausage... a dry cured salami type, or a ground raw meat sausage??? What can I sub (that exists in the Caribbean???)

Little Corner of Mine said...

So yummy looking, my family favorite!

Jo said...

Oh gosh .. you are making my mouth water so early in the morning. Our fav when we are having Teochew porridge.

tigerfish said...

Your egg foo yong loaded with ingredients! I like!

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Dear all, Thanks for your lovely words, do try out this simple recipe.

A year on the grill, Chinese sausage is ground raw meat sausage,see the link here-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_sausage, you may omit this if you can't find it. Or you may replaced with ham but thought the taste will be slightly difference.

Emily said...
