Hungarian Egg Drop Soup "Tojásleves"

Updated: Sep 20, 2020

Egg Drop is a tasty and super satisfying starter, a quick and inexpensive meal. It consists of an onion blond roux, eggs, ground caraway seeds and sweet paprika powder which gives it a nice flavor and color. Some recipes call for vinegar, I prefer making this soup without it.

1 In a soup pot, saute the onions in butter

2 Add 2 tablespoons of plain flour and toast it for 1-2 minutes until starts to brown

3 Slowly pour about 2 cups of hot water into your soup and stir, it will thicken up.

4 Mix well.

5 Slice up the hot dogs

6 Pour in the rest of the water add the hot dogs and a tablespoon of sweet paprika.

7 Bring it to a boil.

8 Beat 4 eggs with a little bit of salt in a small bowl with fork. When the soup is boiling, slowly pour the eggs into the soup while stirring with a wooden spoon.

9 Boil for two more minutes.

10 In the end you can add vinegar (optional) and sugar.
