    So its not homemade but boy is it good! Its just a packet of egg drop soup mix and instead of scrambling 1 egg, I did 3. I used a whisk and its all creamy and thick. Feels good on my sore throat.

    I bet it did feel good! Hope you feel better soon. [​IMG]

    My personal favorite when sick? Hot and sour soup, heavy on the hot!

    And tea, with honey and lemon. 12 hours of sleep helps, too.

    I love egg drop soup...my quickie version is...

    1 can chicken broth
    1 small hand full of chopped green onions (out of the freezer)
    1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil
    1 teaspoon chicken bullion...makes it a little saltier
    3 eggs scrambled


    Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil and stir to get it swirling really fast and then drizzle the eggs in...cook for maybe 30 to 60 seconds and pour into a bowl. Don't overcook or the eggs will get rubbery. I eat the whole thing myself.

    here's how I do egg drop soup

    approx 4 cups chicken broth
    2 stalks minced green onion
    dash of salt (unless using commercial broth)
    pepper
    approx 3 eggs mixed with fork (try not to incorporate air into the mix)

    I pour the chicken broth into my pot and boil it, then bring it to a simmer. I add the salt and the dash pepper. I put the eggs into a measuring cup with a spout and hold it 8 inches or so above the pot, and pour out a slow steady stream. With the opposite hand I make sideways "cutting" motions under the stream of egg, that makes the long swirly egg drops you see in most Chinese resturants. Once you are done pouring the eggs, stop the heat immediately. It will still cook for a few seconds. Garnish with green onions.
