How to Make Bacon & Shrimp Egg Foo Young

This recipe is the bomb! I mean who doesn't love Egg Foo Young, right? So why not add bacon?! Goes great with shrimp - so why not?? It's easy! Here is how you make this tasty dish!


  • 5 or 6 strips of bacon

  • 24 small shrimp

  • 1 to 1.5 cups of shredded cabbage (bok choy or bean sprouts)

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder

  • 2 Tbsp onion powder

  • Several pinches of salt (I used smoked bacon salt)

  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce

  • 2 green onions

  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth

  • Corn starch slurry (1-2 Tbsp cornstarch mixed well with some water)


  1. Heat a pan with cooking oil to about 350 degrees

  2. Fry your bacon, remove & rest on paper towels. Then crumble when cool.

  3. Sauté your shrimp in the bacon drippings - just until pink. Remove

  4. Slice/shred cabbage

  5. Slice your green onions

  6. Take a bowl and combine the 3 eggs, cabbage

  7. Then add one sliced green onion, 3/4 of the crumbled bacon

  8. Save the rest for garnish

  9. Then add 1 Tsp of onion powder and 1 Tsp of garlic powder

  10. Then add a pinch or two of the smoked bacon salt

  11. Mix well

  12. Once oil is hot - scoop the mixture with a ladle

  13. Gently start sliding the mixture into the pan

  14. If it falls apart, just scoop it back onto your patty

  15. Let cook until golden brown on bottom and then flip over

  16. When done, remove and let rest on paper towel

  17. Do the same to the rest of the mixture. You should have enough for 3 or 4 patties.

  18. Then make the gravy.

  19. Use the same pan you made the bacon and sautéed the shrimp

  20. Put pan on med-low heat. Add the chicken broth

  21. Add 1 Tsp of onion powder and 1 Tsp of garlic powder

  22. Add a pinch of smoked bacon salt

  23. Add the corn starch slurry

  24. Continue to stir until it thickens

  25. Once ready, plate your patties and put the gravy over them.

  26. Then garnish the patties with the remaining bacon bits and green onions.
