Do they make a different brand that doesn't taste so strange?
IMO, these "eggs" taste like the film that comes off the shell when you peel a boiled egg.
I made a ham & cheese omelette yesterday morning and I barely got it down. And then last night for supper we had breakfast, French toast to be exact and I used eggbeaters instead of regular eggs, it was pretty good.
I've come to the conclusion that eggbeaters taste so much better when mixed in something rather than eating them like scrambled eggs.
Gosh - I have had eggbeaters many times and don't taste a funny taste. However, when use them in a scramble, I always use some ketchup because that's the way I like scrambled eggs.
Actually - now I use egg whites from fresh eggs for my scrambles, french toast, etc. They taste great to me. Of course, they are white - but, you get used to that. And - it's alot less expensive to use egg whites rather than eggbeaters.
Move ticker, move!

I don't post here, but saw your post on eggbeaters. I only use eggbeaters when I cook with eggs and I use them in absolutely everything and never found them to fail, from chicken fried steak and steak fingers, to french toast, homemade bread products or anything that uses eggs. The fact is, they are not ever going to have the rich taste of egg yolk like a regular egg so if you are eating them just as eggs and absolutely can't have the cholesterol of regular eggs, kick them up a bit with other things, add veggies, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, hot sauce, ff cheese or any variety of spices you like. If you can have eggs but are trying to cut calories, etc, use one serving egg beater and one egg mixed together. My husband and I are on WW and I thought he would kick a fit by using them in cooking but he can't tell the difference. He just basically quit eating eggs as eggs except for occasionally and then eats regular eggs. Hope this gives you another perspective. Faye
I generally use a store brand but sometimes buy eggbeaters when I shop at a different store and I can't tell the difference between them. They are basically the same as egg whites with some yellow food coloring and stabilizer,I think. I use them instead of egg whites for convenience and not having to deal with the egg yolk, which I otherwise might be tempted to eat (in a scramble).
Like others have said, they are only good for a straight egg substitute if you add some flavor. I also put ketchup on eggs (which I pretty much always cook with frozen spinach) and then it's fine.

They do taste weird. I remember a friend of mine was having cholesteral problems, and ordered an eggbeater omlette in a restaurant. I was curious, so I tasted it. It tasted nothing like eggs, and I felt so bad for her!
I do use them for hungry girl type recipies, where you have to coat something with egg. Then you don't really notice the taste. I think that unless you have a cholesteral problem, there's no reason not to eat real eggs, they're good for you, packed with protien! (This is what I was told by the ladies here, after I freaked out because eating one egg caused my dailyplate to say that I was way over my cholesteral for the day!)

Does anyone know which part of the egg contributes more to the protein? Is it the white or the yolk? Just curious. Thanks!

I love them in a breakfast burrito....I scramble, add veggies or a little lean ham and LF cheese and roll it all up in a tortilla. You can freeze several at a time and pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast....yum!
