Bonus Recipe:  Special Chinese Pancakes



  • Containers of leftover Chinese food, including rice
  • 1 packet of soy sauce
  • 1 egg

  1. Add leftover Chinese food, rice and all, to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add egg and soy sauce.
  3. Mix well to separate ingredients and coat with sauce.
  4. Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and add butter.
  5. Pour in scoops of mixture to make pancakes
  6. Flatten mixture.
  7. Let brown, and then flip to cook on second side.
  8. Flip only once and cook through.

  1. Wonderful! Great recipe for life. The Chinese pancakes sound a lot like “Egg Foo Yung”, which I’ve made a few times. Very tasty.
