Egg Drop Soup Recipe

“We start many stir-fry meals with this easy Egg Drop Soup, which cooks in just minutes flat," writes Amy Corlew-Sherlock from Lapeer, Michigan. "There are many recipe variations, but we like the addition of cornstarch to thicken the soup and give it a rich, golden color. “I got the recipe from Grandma’s old cookbook,” Amy recalls. “And when my kids were slow to enjoy eating meat, this ‘souper’-quick dish provided them with easy-to-digest egg protein.”
