      I have made this several times and failed to review or rate the recipe. The time has come the walrus said.......This is a wonderful soup. I had to use the billion cubes so I omitted the salt. I also cut back on the number of eggs as I only had two but it was fun watching them cook when they hit the hot broth. I am making this again tonight as I have a cold and it sounds so good. I'm adding shrimp, green onion and the last carrot(shredded). Thanks for a great recipe.

      Truly loved the simplicity of this recipe. The whole family loved this. I chose this recipe because of the ginger and was not disappointed, it brought a nice fresh flavor to the soup. I will use this recipe for years to come. Thanks for sharing it.

      WOW!! This is a great recipe. I did add a few drops of yellow food coloring to it and it looked just like a restaurant version. I also added green onions chopped at the very end. Wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing. I will never buy egg drop soup again!!
