- The Fam
I’ve noticed among food bloggers that often their most used recipes at home are the ones that don’t get blogged about. This is often true for me. I like to blog about new things and forget to blog about my go-to meals. Egg Drop Soup, along with Fried Rice made with left over cold rice, is a go-to meal or side in our home. It’s quick, satisfying and yummy!
I kind of have a history with Egg Drop Soup. When my siblings and I were in our teen-ish years, it was our favorite thing to eat. We used to sneak those egg-drop-soup-in-a-packet thingys home from the store on our parents dime. What is a little more strange is that we would make it and then all sneak out to the driveway and eat it together. I’m not sure why we had to sneak it? Siblings…any ideas?
So, as an adult I found out that it’s really simple to make and I feel like we were gypped…we didn’t have to be sneaking anything…although, it was fun. So this one is dedicated to my siblings…it’s not such a mystery to make egg drop soup!
Chicken Broth (I use chicken bouillon)
A large egg for every 1 1/2 cups of broth
Sesame Seed Oil
Green onions, green tops chopped only
1. In a bowl add eggs and a couple shakes of soy sauce. Whip the eggs and soy sauce together with a fork.
Until they look like this.
2. In a saucepan, add the broth and a drizzle of sesame seed oil for every two cups of broth. (Be careful not to add too much of the oil. We are talking very small drizzles…a little goes a long way.) Bring the broth to a boil.
3. When it comes to a boil, turn off the heat and start stirring with a fork until you have a slow hurricane…or tornado…going on. Slowly and gently drop egg in as your stirring.
It is really hard to get a good picture when you are dropping and stirring.
Sharper but no tornado.
Now garnish with green onions (VERY IMPORTANT for the flavor), season with more soy sauce if desired and enjoy!
Also, Another very yummy version of this is Italian Egg Drop Soup….instead of sesame oil add a few shakes of DRIED basil to the broth and no soy sauce in the eggs. After adding the egg drop stir in some freshly graded Parmesan cheese!!! Really good. Probably better than the original actually.
