This lap cheong omelette was another dish I grew up eating as a kid. Mom would make this when she didn’t have much time to spend in the kitchen. It seriously comes together very quickly & my kids love Chinese sausages. There are so many different varieties of Chinese lap cheong (la chang in Mandarin). They are usually in dried form và shelf-stable if it’s vacuum-packed in dried form. Some are made pork & pork fat and some are made with mixture of offals like liver, blood, and some have glutinous rice in it.In general, lap cheong tastes slightly sweet và most people like it for that. Some lap cheong has chili added in it that makes it spicy too (I love those!)
