"This is a quick and easy recipe that tastes really good. To add a little more to this soup add one small (7 to 8 ounce) can creamed corn and omit the egg."

2 (14.5 ounce) cans
egg, lightly beaten
chopped green onion
I had tried another egg drop soup recipe that called for soy sauce and vinegar and I liked this one better. I did double the eggs and green onions. It was soooo awesome and a huge hit!
This is a pretty good base, but I think what the reviewers are generally looking for is the taste of egg drop soup from a chinese restaurant. To get that flavor, you need to add a few drops of sesame oil.
Fast and simple recipe. This soup is tastier than the ones served at Chinese Buffets -- it doesn't have a "yolky" flavor. For improved flavor, you may want to use bouillon broth (instead of canned broth) and add 1 teaspoon soy sauce and 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil. == TIP: to make long, not-so-thin egg laces, make sure the beaten egg is not frothy prior to pouring it in a slow, but steady stream in the boiling broth.
I use pretty much the same recipe only what i do is i will add the white part of the scallions while the soup is cooking and then save the greens to garnish once done, also add a teaspoon of soy sauce to bring the flavor out really well, little pepper goes well too.
Fantastic!!! I absolutely loved it!!!! I changed the recipe a bit though....
I added 2 eggs insted of 1...
half a cube of chicken bouillon...
1 shake of Mrs. Dash tablesalt...
1 cup of water...
an extra tablespoon of cornstarch...
and a few shakes of black pepper...
this recipe is very very easy to make!! and tastes fantastic!!
Overall this was a good base soup to start with, needed some extra flavoring. We added ginger and green onions to the soup.
Also needed to at least a full 3tbs of cornstarch to make it as thick as my local resturant. Will make this again
I'll give the recipe the benefit of the doubt, because the other reviewers said it was good. But, as I learned, DO NOT use egg substitute (i.e. better than eggs). I cannot begin to explain what the broth did.
this soup is extremely good and very quick to make. I followed reviews and added 2 eggs rather then one. It turned out excellant. Thanks PATSY
