Pan Fried Cheong Fun with XO Sauce 煮野有take 2之再生腸粉

Pan Fried Cheong Fun with XO Sauce
I wish I could have this for breakfast every day.
I love the slightly crispy edges of the cheong fun (Chinese rice rolls), then the softness, and all kinds of tasty bits from the XO sauce....perfect with a cup of hot tea.
Hmmm, maybe I could have this every day.
It's easy to prepare after all...

真係想日日都有得食哩個早餐
鐘意食D焦焦地脆脆地既腸粉, 加埋XO醬同杯茶就完美了!

Pan Fried Cheong Fun with XO Sauce
I didn't make my own cheong fun, of course. It's the combination of laziness, lack of skills, and my chronic obsession with short-cuts.

腸粉係酒樓飲早茶食淨, 大家都可以係出面買

Simply use store bought cheong fun, pan fry with lots of XO sauce and a touch of light soy sauce until the exterior of the cheong fun gets just a bit crispy. I used generous amount of XO Sauce from Mandarin Oriental, super yummy!

煎香D腸粉, 落D XO醬, 攪掂

Serve with a good pot of tea. Perfect.

I was just about to say - why can't you have this everyday (as long as you have that XO sauce and accessibility to cheong fun)? I am the one to say ...I wish I could...

this is one of my favourite hk snack!! but a lot restaurants didn't do it well. it's either their xo sauce sux or they are stingy on their xo sauce or both.

Oh I wouldn't mind having this for breakfast every day either... would be even nicer if my better half does the frying since he's got a better handle on the wok, hehe. :P

Yummy, we have this dish in the restaurant here too. I should go buy some cheong fun and fry it myself.

These are one of my most favorite things EVER! I'm sure the ones here in the US are nothing like the ones there...but delicious!

I would have this every day for breakfast too...! But how unfortunate that I can't even get fresh cheong fun here (as usual, I'm missing all those delicious things in life ;) - I know I love to exaggerate...!)

i tried this already! i found it hard to pan-fry the rice rolls though. they kind of stick together in the pan like SUPERGLUE! =_= maybe it's the brand of rice rolls which i bought that isnt very gd. i also found that the sides dont crisp, so my version wasnt crispy at all, >_<

but the xo sauce was a saver, yumms!
