Chef.at.Home's picture
Ingredients
  Green beans 1⁄2 Pound, tipped and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  Butter/Margarine 3 Tablespoon
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Eggs 6
  Canned chopsuey vegetables 1 Pound, drained (1 Can)
  Dried beef 2 Ounce, shredded
  Pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Saute beans quickly in 1 tablespoon of butter or margarine in a large, heavy skillet 3 to 4 minutes Pour the water and soy sauce over; cover; cook for 5 minutes, or until crisply tender and the liquid is absorbed.
2. Beat eggs slightly in medium-size bowl; stir in cooked beans, chop-suey vegetables, dried beef and pepper.
3. Melt part of remaining 2 tablespoons butter or margarine in same skillet. Drop egg mixture, a generous tablespoonful at a time, into heated pan to make 2-inch cakes. (Scoop mixture from bottom of bowl, as beef and vegetables sink.) Let each cake set slightly before adding another so they won't run together during cooking.
4. Bake until egg on top appears dry; turn; brown other side. Repeat to make 24 cakes, adding more butter as needed between each batch.
5. As cakes are cooked, stack on a plate; cover them and keep warm over saucepan of simmering water. Serve plain or with more soy sauce.
