This Hong Kong tomato macaroni soup recipe is SUPER easy. You literally throw everything except the dried macaroni into your soup pot and bring it to a boil!

Why is this dish called Hong Kong style tomato macaroni soup?
In Hong Kong, this is actually a popular breakfast or brunch meal. You'll see it eaten often at HK cafes as it's usually on the menu. You can even find many HK style cafes in Ontario, Canada especially in Markham or Richmond Hill.
There's two variations - one with tomato broth and one with just plain meat broth. Both are super delicious!
What if I'm vegan or I don't like hot dogs?
For my Hong Kong style tomato macaroni soup recipe, if you are vegan you can swap it for vegan hot dogs. But add it in at the very end so they don't turn to mush!
Also, you can omit the hotdog and eggs while swapping the broth for veggie broth.
If you're not a fan of hotdogs, you can always swap it for ham, sausage or any meat of your choice for this HK Macaroni soup recipe.
Pin for later!
On a Personal Note
How is everyone doing? I hope you're all healthy, taking good care and practicing social distancing during these concerning times. Who knew we would ever experience a virus this infectious causing countries to go into lockdown mode? I mean SARS was bad enough!
But with every dark cloud comes a silver lining. With the reduced air and ground travel, companies and non-essential businesses being closed temporarily, this has forced workers to stay home or spend some time outdoor in nature. As a result, the pollution levels has decreased, especially in the most infected areas like Italy and China. Check out this article by CNBC for more.
I am thankful....
That our Prime Minister is doing is his best to protect Canadian citizens. At the start of last week, he had all non-essential restaurants, bars, and cinemas close and encouraged companies to allow staff to work from home which most have adapted to. He also has closed the borders to non-Canadian citizens and urged all Canadian travelers to return home immediately and self-quarantine for 14 days. Today "Trudeau says that provinces and local governments continue to take steps to restrict people’s movements and the federal government stepping in is a last resort." Source: Global News.
It is unfortunate that small businesses have been so heavily impacted by this. My hope is that all Canadians can continue to do their part by social distancing and staying home. I know it's not pleasant to be cooped up at home - trust me, I work from home full time so I know what it's like to experience cabin fever. But this is important. We all have to do our part so we can flatten the pandemic curve and stop it from spreading. The more people who cooperate the faster we can flatten it, the faster we can all escape our homes haha!
I do want to thank those who are cooperating and doing their best. It's also so amazing to see more people cooking at home on social media! I hope this whole experience teaches us that cooking isn't that hard and can be really fun.

Hehe I think the thing I love most about this dish is the egg on top. It reminds me of when I was in Germany and at almost every meal they brought it out with an egg on top !
This was super easy to make and so filling! I loved the taste of it too.

I made this for my boys and they loved it! I had to omit the tomato since one of my sons doesn't like it, but this is going to be on repeat, especially when it's back to school. Thanks for the recipe!
