Homemade Egg Drop Soup

"A restaurant classic that can easily be made at home. This is just as good as take out! Egg drop soup is simple, warm, and tasty . It goes well with any Chinese food main dish."


Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time5 min


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon water
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 small scallion
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped chives


  1. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the water.

  2. On medium-low heat, bring the broth to a simmer. Stir in the sugar, salt, and sesame oil.

  3. Continue to stir in a clockwise motion and very slowly slip the egg into the simmering broth. As you stir, the egg will coagulate and form thin threads.

  4. Stir in the scallion and remove from the heat. Pour soup into individual bowls and garnish with chives.


A great way to ensure that the egg slips in gradually is to prop a fork on the side of your pot with the tines pointing down. Then, pour the egg through the tines. This will give you those fine strands that you are familiar with at the restaurant!

This Homemade Egg Drop Soup recipe is not only easy and delicious, it is fun to make. The most fun is getting those eggs to gradually slip in. Thanks to the authors tip about propping a fork on the side of the pot, I was able to master the "art". LOL Give this recipe a try. You will be glad you did.

Wow! This is incredibly simple. Egg Drop has always been a favorite of mine. I can't get enough of it. I'm glad to see it's easy.
