Curdling egg

Make sure broth is not boiling or super hot when you begin to temper the eggs and have the eggs at room temperature. I remove the broth mix from the stove to cool down a bit before adding eggs and the heat the broth or whisk it constantly while adding the eggs. When all is blended well I heat on very low just enough to heat the soup through.

Soup comment

I made this recipe and followed the instructions about adding the eggs. The eggs still curdled when added to the soup. Otherwise, the recipe looks, smells, and tastes good.
