Instructions Checklist
  • Place the potatoes, onion, margarine and bouillon cube into a soup pot, and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes by 1 to 2 inches. Bring to a boil, and cook for 30 minutes, until potatoes are falling apart. You can smash them up a little if you prefer the texture. Drizzle the beaten eggs into the pot, while stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir for about 2 minutes, until the eggs are completely cooked in long strands.

This recipe is very very bland and almost tasteless. I added salt pepper and an extra bullion cube also...I wouldn't make it again. it was warm and somewhat tasy after being in the fridge and reheated one day though...but still needs something... Read More

I really like the idea of adding the potatoes and onions to Egg Drop Soup - makes it a good deal more filling and nourishing. My soup had plenty of flavor as I started by simmering rotisserie chicken bones & skin to make the broth then strained the broth and continued with the recipe. Crumbled bacon pieces and fresh parsley boosted the flavor. Read More

i added 2 more potatoes 3 more eggs 3 cloves of garlic a tablespoon of soy sauce replace the large onion for 3 green onions and 6 small chicken bouillon cubes ( you end up using 12 cups of water) for more of a chicken flavor and 2 tabel spoons of rosted sesame seeds. Its going to be good and it should be enough to feed 3 for a couple days. Good food for when your under the weather. Also you need to stir the eggs in one direction only for long strands or you will get chunky eggs. Read More

I'm giving this a 5 all the way due to the addition of potato and onion. I read the other reviews and tasted it with one cube and it was okay but I did think it needed more BUT I like the salt. I added another cube and a shake of parsley and a bit of black pepper (personal preference with anything egg) and I think it tasted better than the typical egg drop. Next time I will not let my potatoes get as done as they did but again just a personal preference and nothing do do with the taste. SO simple and SO satisfying. You could even put in some peas and carrots if you wanted. Egg Drop is a MUST for me when I stir-fry and I will definitley be making this soup again. Thank you! Read More

This is about how I make potato soup. Only of course there's milk salt pepper garlic a little corn too. Adds protein to an otherwise starchy dinner. Read More

I also added extra bullion cube and used some sharp cheddar cheese to add more flavor. I also added some white pepper and paprika for more spice. Galic cloves and garlic salt work well for us. Read More
