Quick Fix: Add an Egg To Soup!!!

Sometimes when I see pictures of things online, it sparks my imagination. That's why I love Pinterest soooooo very much. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a picture of a noodle soup with a fresh, raw egg in the bowl. I was so intrigued by this picture that one day, I decided to do it.

If you follow me regularly, then you might have seen my beefed up version of rice noodle soup which is something I frequently have for lunch. That's the base I am using for this add on to my soup. There are lots of soups you can add an egg to... though I have to say that I think Asian inspired soups may work the best. Can you imagine a hot and sour soup with an egg cracked in it?!

Yuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmm. Mmmm. M. (Sorry, my mouth was full of wonderful soup with egg.)

I have been eating eggs like they are going out of style. Especially since our ladies have been laying eggs like CHAMPS! So there is no recipe for this really, it's more of an add on to any great soup that you think could use an egg. You can add it to anything, like chicken noodle soup or tomato soup, or noodle soup. It'll add a very creamy quality to the soup and add some extra "oomph!"

All you want to do is add the egg to the soup as soon as you take it off the stove. The hot broth will cook the egg. I stirred my egg into the soup. The whites were visible and the yolk incorporated into the broth...it was AMAZING! Now, if that makes you a little bit standoffish, I get that, so you can also add the egg to the pot in the last minute of cooking. It'll poach it right in the soup and that is also completely delicious! (I've done it both ways!)

Will you try it??? What soup will you add an egg to?? Share it with me in the comments section below and I will try my favorite suggestion and letcha know how it goes!
