Stir-Fried Century and Salted Eggs Combination

Eggs are a favourite in my house, and I suppose that could be same in almost every household, especially with kids. Eggs makes a super quick meal, when you are rushing for time, or simply just want a simple and easy meal, eggs never fails to deliver! 

For one of the weeknight dinner, I made this egg dish because I have some leftover stewed meat from the previous day, and wanted to have something simple to go with rice along with the leftover stewed meat and a stir-fry green veggie. This egg dish is just the one!


A simple and delicious plate of stir-fried three types of eggs!


Century eggs and salted eggs. Do you like century eggs? In my house, we love both century eggs and salted eggs. 

This recipe uses century eggs, salted eggs and the usual chicken eggs. The salted eggs are cooked till hard boiled and both the salted and century eggs are chopped to pieces. Recipe uses only the egg yolks from the salted eggs, but I have used the whites as well. The ones I bought are not really salty and they are perfect. The chicken eggs are beaten lightly, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper with a dash of sesame oil. Mix the chopped eggs and some sectioned spring onions into the egg mixture and stir gently to combine. The recipe calls for some parsley as well, since I do not have any, I just used a large bunch of spring onions. Heat some oil in a wok, pour the egg mixture into the hot oil and stir gently until the eggs are cooked. I like mine a little brown, so I have stir-fried longer so that the eggs are golden and fragrant. Dish up and serve.

For homemade Salted Eggs, you may refer to my post here.


Yummy! Perfect with rice or even with congee.

    Joyce,
    How I love this eggs combination. Droolingggg.... By the way, try to cut down on commercial century eggs. If possible, learn to make it yourself. I happen to read an article on the commercial century eggs which contain a kind of chemical and preservative that is quite hazardous to our health if consume too much. Can't remember the name.
