Eggs foo young in the United States can also be served with a brown gravy. Foe yong hai has proven itself to be a very adaptable dish. In Missouri, USA, for instance, the dish even found itself between two slices of bread, becoming an egg foo young sandwich called St. Paul sandwich. This sandwich was likely made up to suit American tastes.Becky Mercuri, American Sandwich (2009): 71
