Egg Drop Soup with Crispy Wontons

Prep Time:30 min
Cook Time:20 min
Yield:4 servings


  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 4 wonton wrappers
  • 4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lite soy sauce
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 cup dried fine egg noodles
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil


  1. 1.
    HEAT oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Spray both sides of wonton wrappers with no-stick cooking spray; slice into 1/4-inch strips.

  2. 2.
    PLACE strips on prepared sheet; bake just until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  3. 3.
    BRING chicken broth, water, soy sauce, ginger and garlic to a boil in a 2-quart heavy saucepan. Remove ginger and garlic with a slotted spoon and discard.

  4. 4.
    STIR in noodles; simmer, uncovered, until tender, about 4 minutes. Stirring soup in a circular motion, add eggs in a slow, steady stream. Simmer, undisturbed, until strands of egg are cooked, about 1 minute.

  5. 5.
    REMOVE from heat; stir in most of the green onions (reserve some for garnish) and sesame oil. Season with salt. Ladle soup into serving bowls: garnish with wonton strips and reserved green onion slices. Serve.

Good! The Egg Drop Soup with Crispy Wontons was light and good. I really liked the wontons April 14, 2013
Great but... This soup was easy to prepare, tasted good but it was just not what I was looking for. I was wanting the traditional egg drop soup and while this was good, the broth was not thick enough for me. Next time, I will add a little corn starch to the broth to thicken it up some.
