Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 12 (1/2-cup) nonstick muffin cups with cooking spray.

  • Whisk eggs and salt in a large bowl. Stir in peas, bean sprouts, scallions and carrots. Divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups (scant 1/2 cup each).

  • Bake until the egg is cooked and beginning to brown, 28 to 32 minutes. Run a knife around the edges to loosen.

  • Meanwhile, bring broth, mirin, soy sauce and white pepper to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook for 3 minutes. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl; whisk into the broth mixture. Cook, whisking, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm. Serve the sauce with the egg foo yong.


Equipment: Nonstick muffin tin with 12 (1/2-cup) cups

Tip: Mirin is a sweet, low-alcohol rice wine essential in Japanese cooking. Look for it in your supermarket with the Asian or gourmet ingredients.

People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

Too many peas! This had so many peas that it was hard to even taste the sprouts and carrots. The peas need to be cut by at least half. I also needed an extra 5 minutes cook time using a dark nonstick pan. Sauce was good. Read More
