My 7y/o daughter has been asking for egg drop soup. Found your recipe and it is so easy. I thought that with no more ingredients than this it wouldn't have much taste. Was I ever wrong. My daughter loved it and my 9y/o son did too. 10y/o daughter thought it was good but not great, DH had two bowls of it. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

Love it! I've been making this recipe the last 3 times, but tonight I decided to give it a Korean twist with some chopped Kimchi. Doing this enabled me to use no salt. The result is fantastic.<br/>Egg Drop soup is my go to soup for colds and flu. Kimchee is a Korean staple that is a boost to the immune system.

As a Chinese, I almost forget this simple soup that I used to make at home. This simple recipe totally reminded me of what home tasted like. I used homemade chicken broth for the soup base. Also dropped two eggs in instead of one. Shredded green onion plus sesame oil for garnishing made this soup extra tasty. So simple and delicious!

After years of attempts at egg-drop soup, I finally got it down perfect with this recipe! The trick to making it have the same consistency as the restaurants is in the amount of cornstarch. I've as much as tripled the amount listed to get it right with no effect on flavor. I also add some corn and use freeze dried chives as the garnish. I skip the salt and double the eggs.

Super tasty. My huisband does not care for egg drop soup and ate some out of obligation but ended up asking for seconds. My kids loved it too. I feared it was going to be a bit bland but it was really great. I think it may depend on what type of chicken broth you use. I followed the recipe as it was written and it was just perfect.

A very nice recipe. I did not have scallions or green onions so I finely chopped a small amount of sweet onion and added to broth. When soup was done I added some finely chopped baby spinach. Also I added "Better than Boullion" to my homemade chicken stock and a couple drops of soy sauce. Will make again
