    Directions:

      Stir the soup well to make sure the eggs are incorporated so that they do not curdle.

      This was my first attempt at avgolemono soup and I was very pleased with the results. The flavor and texture are wonderful. I really liked the addition of the fresh dill; next time I will mix some dill in the soup as well as for garnish. Thanx for introducing me to a great soup.
