    QueenB3143's Note:

    I have no idea if this is even close to how Chinese restaurants actually make egg drop soup, but it tastes VERY similar. You will be shocked how simple this really is. My mom made this a lot and it was one of the first recipes I made myself. Feel free to throw in any leftover spinach, onions, etc. to this recipe.

      This soup was really really good. I have been eating egg drop soup for as long as I can remember and began making it at home last year when DD got sick and I knew she'd eat this. I prepared it this way using chicken broth instead of water and bouillon cubes. I'd also add the soy sauce and eggs. Well, we never tried it with the sugar or the green onions. Last night, I used 2 3/4 cup chicken broth and 2 eggs then added the sugar, soy sauce and green onions. I will have to say the onions put this over the top. We loved it. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PAC Fall/2008.

      I have made a lot of egg drop soups but what I love about this one is that it gives the option to add spinach, which is a nice change!!! I added a good handful of spinach, but easily could have added more, it really cooks down a lot! I didn't have the green onions, which I would have loved to use, so I used chives instead. Yummy stuff!
