  • When selecting the shrimp, chicken and beef for the recipe, make sure to choose cooked, diced pieces for best results.
  • When selecting the white bread for the sandwich, look for a soft, crusty variety.

  • Substitute black beans for the bean sprouts - Black beans are a great source of protein and fiber, making this sandwich a healthier option.
  • Substitute whole wheat bread for white bread - Whole wheat bread is a healthier option than white bread, as it contains more fiber and nutrients. This substitution may also add a nutty flavor to the sandwich.

Vegetarian Variation Replace the cooked shrimp, chicken and beef with 1/4 cup diced mushrooms, 1/4 cup diced carrots and 1/4 cup diced zucchini. Cook all vegetables in the skillet until tender before adding the egg-cornstarch mixture.

Fried Rice - Fried Rice is a perfect accompaniment to the St Paul Sandwich as it provides a savory and flavorful balance to the sandwich's egg foo yung filling. It is also a great way to use up any leftovers from the sandwich filling, as it can be easily customized to include any ingredients of your choice.

Sweet and Sour Pork: Sweet and Sour Pork is a great way to add a touch of sweetness and tanginess to the St Paul Sandwich. The pork's sweet and sour sauce pairs perfectly with the sandwich's savory egg foo yung filling, creating a unique and delicious flavor combination. It also adds a nice crunchy texture to the sandwich, making it even more enjoyable.


Q: How do I prepare the egg mixture?

A: Combine 3 eggs, ¼ teaspoon cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce in a bowl and mix until blended. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a 6-inch skillet and add the egg mixture, stirring constantly until the egg is scrambled.

Q: What are the health benefits of eating eggs?

A: Eggs are a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. They are also low in calories and contain healthy fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids. Eating eggs can help to increase energy levels, improve eye health, and support muscle growth.
