One of the joys of moving to Oklahoma has been the occasional trip into town for Chinese takeout.  A little cup of Egg Drop Soup is always a must for Emmet, it is his favorite.

Take out is great, but I have to tell you Egg Drop Soup is so easy to make at home!  It has been a while since I have made it.  I couldn’t find the recipe that I thought was stuck in my giant binder of miscellaneous recipes that I have stashed away over time.  

So I looked at about fifty- dozen different recipes across the internets and added in some toasted sesame oil. It was ready in about 5 minutes. Now you can’t beat that.

  1. Milisa, What a lovely and simple version of a soup that one of our family favorites too. My favorite part is the egg – how the strands look so delicate and add such a smooth taste to the chicken soup. It’s still chilly here in the MidAtlantic – I feel like running over to the stove and whipping up a batch right now!

  2. I loved Egg Drop Soup as a kid…ordered it without fail every time we ordered Chinese. Oddly enough, I haven’t had it in years. I need to remedy that situation, because I just want to reach in and grab that bowl!

  3. Love this recipe,I’m going to try this using egg whites,or I wonder if egg beaters would work. Everyone loves this one.
    Thanks Missy
