G,day I was wondering if some one could help me, in some of the recipes they call for an egg sustitute I can,t find it here downunder so I want to know can I use normal eggs instead and if I can in what measures. Thanks for any help...Juls

Egg whites will work. Egg substitutes are mainly egg whites with some additives for color and appearance.

Thank you so much for the information. My husband and I were wondering about that. Why pay the extra cost for the egg beaters when I can just eat egg whites. Gives me more days a week to enjoy eggs. Also, give me another food to eat.

Thanks for the help Suzanne, so if the recipe calls for half a cup and so on how many egg whites would I use, sorry to be a pain. JULS

I believe you use the same amount of egg whites as the egg substitute you are supposed to use. So if it calls for 1/4 cup substitute, measure out 1/4 cup egg whites.

I find that using 2 egg whites to every 1 yolk is a nice compromise. I can't tell the difference then. I think the egg substitute has a conversion chart on the side of the box (1/4 cup substitute equals blah blah egg white) but I don't use substitute so I couldn't tell you what that ratio is.

Laughing at my goofy self. I see you got the ratio answer in a previous post.
