This easy egg drop soup recipe is a snap to make. It only takes a few simple ingredients and about 20 minutes for a super simple, yet incredibly delicious meal.
Our hens our very great layers, so we have a constant supply of eggs around here. I like to try to find new recipes for which I can use up all of these extra eggs.
The other day I whipped up this super easy egg drop soup for lunch.
It was a hit with my entire family. And despite my best efforts, I sometimes struggle with picky eaters.
So anytime I find something that my entire family will eat, I get pretty excited. Moms and dads, you get it right?
Easy Egg Drop Soup Recipe
Not only is this recipe delicious, its also pretty frugal. It takes a few simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
And some of you may grow most of these in your garden.
The base of this soup is a poultry bone broth. I like to make big patches of bone broth and store it in the fridge and freezer for longer term storage.

- Heat up stock pot on medium, add butter to melt and coat bott of stock pot.
- Dice onions, carrots, and celery, add to pot with butter and sauté until onions are translucent. Stir in the garlic
- Add bone broth to the pot and simmer on medium for a few minutes until the carrots are tender but not disintegrating.
- Incorporate peas — they only need to be cooked for a few minutes.
- In a separate bowl, whisk up the eggs until mixed well.
- Turn up heat on pot until it has reached a medium boil.
- Stir the broth mixture until it is swirling around in the pot. Very slowly, drizzle in egg mixture and continue to stir while incorporating. The eggs should cook almost immediately. You want to make sure that you are mixing as you are drizzling the egg mixture into the hot broth and not just pouring it in to avoid the eggs just clumping up in the pot.
- Salt & pepper to taste. Depending on the flavor of your bone broth, you may or may not need much seasoning.
- Serve & enjoy!
