This Wonton Egg Drop Soup recipe is so easy, we know you'll want to make it all the time! 

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 pound ground pork
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (6-ounce) package wonton skins
  • 2 eggs, beaten, divided
  • 8 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine ground pork, 1 sliced scallion, ginger, and garlic powder; mix well.
  2. Place wonton skins on a work surface, then place a teaspoonful of pork mixture in each. Brush egg around edges of skin, bring 2 opposing corners up to meet, and press to seal. Moisten remaining corners and fold each one up to meet the other corner; press to seal.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium-high heat, bring 7-1/2 cups chicken broth and the sesame oil to a boil. Drop wontons into broth and cook 10 minutes or until tender. Remove wontons to individual soup bowls.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining chicken broth. Add to soup, stirring constantly. With a fork, slowly stir the remaining egg into the soup, forming egg strands. Stir in remaining scallions and the soy sauce. Remove from heat and serve over wontons.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Looking so forward to making this - have a question, though. That's a lot of soup! Is there a way to freeze it, or would I be better off separating the pork freezing till I make the soup? Any help most appreciated, thank you!

Hey there! The test kitchen has not tried freezing this recipe before. We would recommend freezing the pork wontons and soup separately, or freezing the wontons until you're ready to make the soup. Hope this helps!

Thank you so much, this is a light and wonderful soup. Keep up the good work. JAH

thank you I want to try this one it sounds oh so good

If you cook the filled won ton wrappers separately in a pot of simmering water it will not make your broth cloudy. Then it will look just like you were served at a Chinese restaurant. The powdered surface of the wrapper makes the broth cloudy.
