This is a lower carb version of a recipe from Southern Living magazine. The original recipe only called for one egg, but that didn't seem like enough to be worthwhile so I added two. That was just right. I really like this soup and it reminds me of a combination of egg drop and wonton soup, minus the wontons, of course. I like that this is so quick and simple to make, yet tasty.
