I love this soup! I used to buy the prepackaged seasoning for Egg Drop Soup at the grocery store until I found this recipe that is better and cheaper! Tastes just like what you would order at a restaurant and takes just minutes to prepare. I use chicken bouillon for the base most of the time and leave out the extra salt. Dried chives are good if you don't have fresh and any extras like thinnly sliced mushrooms or green onions are a great addition, but not necessary.
