Easy Onion Soup and Egg Drop Recipe

For a change of pace from your ordinary hot food breakfast, Lipton Onion Soup Egg Drop satisfies the palate for deliciousness and provides extra protein to boot. I have revised the recipe found on the back of the Lipton Onion Soup Box so that you can prepare this soup for one person. It is quick and easy to prepare.


  • 1 tablespoon Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 large egg


Shake up the Lipton Onion Soup Mix envelope so that the seasoning inside the envelope is evenly distributed. Place one tablespoon of the seasoning into a small saucepan. Add one cup of water into the saucepan with the seasoning and stir to mix. Bring the seasoning and water to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for ten minutes. After the soup has cooked for ten minutes, crack the egg open and add the egg to the soup. Using a spoon, gently stir the egg into the soup using a figure eight motion. For the best flavor and texture, you want the egg to cook through (like scrambled eggs). You do not want the egg to be stringy, so, stir gently. If you stir too hard, the egg becomes stringy and the soup takes on a dull appearance; you lose the distinct flavor of the soup.


It is easy to increase the servings for this recipe; simply double, triple, or quadruple the quantities of all the ingredients.

For the original Lipton Onion Soup recipe, see the back of the Lipton Onion Recipe Soup and Mix box.

      Hi Rajan. There was a time when I was going through a phase when I just wanted to make one serving of everything. This was one of those days.
