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!!
I'll throw in my praise for this recipe. We all enjoyed it so much, and egg drop soup is one of my family's favorites. Usually we get big quart containers from a local buffet, but this is just as good, maybe better! I added sesame oil like some of the others just because I love the stuff. Thanks for a great recipe!
Well this was a HUGE success! DH said it's the best he's ever had and ate 4 bowls! :) I think 2 eggs would have been plenty (I used 2). I used homemade chicken stock that had some soy sauce in it, and DH really loved that flavor in there as well. Thanks for the awesome recipe! I have a feeling I'll be making this again!!!
Easy and good. so much so that I won't pay another $2 for it when I have takeout. Its a lot of egg, maybe a little too much.
This soup was spectacular! More refreshing than even a restaurant because it's fresh and bright tasting. I had to use freeze dried chives because that's what I had on hand, and I omitted the extra salt as I figured the canned broth I used had plenty. This was a very simple and quick recipe, but I have one time to make it even easier. Use a glass 4C. measuring cup to whisk the eggs in, then just pour slowly into the broth and whisk to break the eggs up.
Very good, though we'll add more ginger next time to add more zing. Thanks for sharing the recipe - it's a keeper.
Yummy! I used scallions instead of chives and added a pinch of white pepper, too. For the ginger I just simmered the broth (extra salt omitted) with a fresh slice of ginger in the beginning and then removed it. I used about 1/2 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil, too. It's a rainy day here and this is a delicious comforting soup. Thanks!
When my dear father was suffering from throat cancer two years ago this was the ONLY thing he could eat. I left out the green onions as he could not swallow them. I just found yours posted today but I have used this same recipe and it was both yummy and soothing especially for him. Great protein nurtrion for him also. Wanted to share that for anyone who may need easy recipes for a sick loved one that is also wonderful for those who are not! This recipe is VERY yummy and does taste ike the best rest. egg drop soup. Thanks for posting it.
