Mom always adored Chinese Food. When she and Daddy had time alone they were off to Jade Palace. They were married in 1926 and movies meant Chinese food too...so years later, stuck at home with kids...she began to make this great low cal, low carb treat for dinner. Always a fav of mine I worked it so I can enjoy it still on my low carb program...yeah

  1. This is just a recipe that will take what ever you want to bring to the table. If you have lots of leftovers just use a total of 1 - 11/2 cup of meats and veggies in the egg mixture.
  2. You want to put a small amount of salt because you will be using soyasauce in the gravy.
  3. Whisk or beat the eggs to lighten them a bit and then add in the veggies and mix with wooden spoon. Heat an 8" pan to hot and spray with Pam type of spray. You can also use peanut oil spray if you like the taste. Then laddle a 1/3 cup into the hot pan and cook on med-hi when egg is cooked on one side, flip over and it should slightly rise, then take off and put on plate with a cover to keep warm. Keep cooking and this will make at least 6 egg flat omellet pancakes - Put two on a plate and drizzle with the chicken broth/soyasauce gravy over the top and sprinkle with green onions (crushed peanuts) This makes a very filling dinner. The gravy can be made with thickener but if you are on low carb do not use any it will only add carbs and its tastes just as good without it.
  4. Everyone loves this dish, its easy to make and is a great budget stretcher, too.
