Egg Drop Soup Served with Fried Wan Ton Wraps

(Post modified on 1/17/23.)

Our youngest daughter loved this soup when she was young and liked to make it with me. It’s a great recipe to make with young kids. She even made it as a 4-H cooking project and received a purple ribbon on it.

Egg Drop Soup with Dried Green Onions

You may partially make this soup ahead of time to save last minute prep for something else. Then before you’re ready to serve, heat the soup in a medium saucepan and add the beaten eggs to it. Simple and easy. And delicious!

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this RecipeTo begin, gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. This recipe does not take long to make, so you may want to prepare part of it ahead of time and then finish right before serving your dinner.

 

Prepare the Ingredients

Using a fork, whisk together the large eggs in a small bowl.

With a knife and cutting board, thinly slice green onions and place in a prep bowl for later use.

Slice half a package of wonton wraps into 1-inch strips. Save for later

 

Make the Soup

Place cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Whisk the chicken stock into the cornstarch a little at a time, until completely combined.

Heat on medium high heat and stir constantly until slightly thickened. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

If preparing this soup ahead of time, you may stop here, and then finish the recipe right before you’re ready to serve.

Add Beaten Eggs to Thickened Broth and Gently StirRemove from heat and slowly add the beaten eggs, gently stirring once or twice with a wooden spoon. Cover and set until ready to serve, up to 10 minutes.

 

Prepare the Wonton Strips

Heat a Dutch oven with enough peanut oil to cover the bottom with 2-3″ of oil. Heat to 350 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Carefully, place a handful of prepared wonton strips into the hot oil and cook for 20-30 seconds. It doesn’t take long for the strips to cook in the hot oil.

Remove with a wire strainer when they have turned a golden brown and place on a tray lined with paper towels to soak up the extra oil.

Transfer fried strips to a small serving bowl.

Garnish Soup with Dried Green Onions, if DesiredTo serve, ladle soup into small soup bowls and garnish with sliced green onion (or dried green onions).

If you don’t have green onions, you may substitute with dried green onions, which I have done in these pictures.
