I make egg drop soup a few different ways.
This is one of my easy stand-by methods.
With two hungry mouths waiting for me after church sometimes I have to think quick when it comes to feeding them.
I know there are packets out there you can buy and all you have to do is drop in the egg. Well, those egg drop soup packets are full of ingredients I can’t even pronounce along with a high amount of sodium. Nothing either my husband or myself really need.
When I say this is easy, I mean it.
Boil some low sodium chicken broth, or use homemade stock. Homemade chicken stock is my fave. I use it in so many recipes. Scramble a few eggs in a bowl. When the stock boils, slowly whisk them in.
Easy. Peasy. Done in under 15 minutes.
Simply Quick Egg Drop Soup
- 3 cups homemade chicken stock or 2 can low sodium chicken broth
- 3 eggs
- In a bowl take a fork and mix the 3 eggs.
- In a pan empty the 2 cans of chicken broth.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Bring the both to a boil.
- When the broth comes to a boil slowly pour the egg mixture into the broth and using a metal whisk mix the broth and egg to avoid clumping.

I have never had egg drop soup before. It sounds like something I would like, so now I’m not sure why 🙂
What??? Never??? Oh girl, you must try it!
I LOVE egg drop soup. I order it every single time we order Chinese. It would be nice to make this at home so I could have it anytime I want it especially if it only takes 15 minutes.
It sooooooo easy. I toss in some chives or green onions when I have those on hand too. I order it when we go out too.
Your soup bowl and spoon are gorgeous! I love trying new soup recipes in the fall, I’ll have to keep this in mind.
Thank you so much. My FIL and Step MIL purchased those for husband. I believe they were a Christmas gift. He loves Asian food.
I love egg drop soup, but I shudder to think what’s in those pack mixes. I’m definitely trying this soon.
That is why I started making my own. It so simple I don’t need a pack mix. You can experiment with your own seasonings.
I’ve never dried egg drop soup before. It always sounded so weird to me. Reading the ingredients and instructions though, it sounds easy enough and something I would probably even enjoy. Will definitely try this soon!
I hope you do give it a try some day.
I’ve never had egg drop soup. Maybe we’ll give it a try! 🙂
I hope you do. If you like eggs, this would be something you might like.

Interesting! I’ve never even heard of egg drop soup! I think this would be perfect to try out especially on a rainy afternoon!
I have yet to try egg drop soup. Not sure why, I just always go for egg rolls instead lol.

This looks so easy! I have friends and family that love egg drop soup. I’ll definitely share this with them!
I had no idea that it would be this easy to make Egg Drop Soup. I have everything to make it too. This might be what I have for lunch tomorrow.

This is one soup that I have never heard of. It sounds simple and something I would probably like. I will have to give it a try for lunch this week.
Let me know how it turns out for you!
I serve Egg Drop Soup here when I cook hubby and the kids Chinese food. It’s the perfect accompaniment for the meal.

I never realized how simple it was to make. This would be fab on a cold or wet day to warm up!
