Substituting Egg Whites For Whole  Eggs

In most egg-based recipes, you can substitute 1 or 2 egg whites for a whole egg. If a recipe calls for 2 eggs, you can replace the 2 whole eggs by I whole egg and 2 egg whites, for example in meat loaf, hamburgers, pancakes, quick breads, muffins or salad dressing. Where a recipe calls for 2 egg yolks, use I whole egg instead, if you wish. For scrambled eggs, you can use I whole egg and any number of whites.


This natural egg substitute can be used to replace 2 or 3 eggs in most recipes.

3 egg whites
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tbsp. skim milk powder
1 tsp. vegetable oil
a pinch turmeric

Beat egg whites lightly with a fork. Stir in milk, milk powder, oil and turmeric, beating until well blended.

Makes about 6 tbsp./90 mL.
