That familiar restaurant flavor, but packed with homemade goodness! Super rich and satisfying, this is egg drop soup recipe is great for a quick lunch or end of day pick-me-up. It is salty, though. If you're watching your salt intake we suggest using low sodium chicken broth and soy sauce. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
