Have a recipe that has 1 cup of egg substitute in it. I prefer using real eggs. Anyone know how many eggs I need to equal 1 cup of egg substitute? Thanks!!!!
Okay, my brain is working a tad slow this afternoon. I found it on Google. 1 cup substitute= 4 eggs. I am making a Taste of Home recipe called Crustless Mushroom Spinach Tart. It is kind of like a pie with fresh mushrooms, onions & 1 pkg chopped frozen spinach, 1 cup milk & 1 cup (4 eggs) egg subs. & 1 1/4 cup mex cheese blend & 1/3 cup parm. My problem is I hate quiche because it tastes too "eggy" for me. I'm wondering if I could get by with using 2 or 3 eggs in this recipe. Anyone?? Thanks :)
Here's the guideline:
1 egg = 1/4 cup egg substitute
2 eggs = 1/2 cup egg sub
4 eggs = 1 cup egg sub
8 eggs = i pint carton egg substitute
Good question. Hope this helps.

I had success with decreasing eggs in a quiche recipe. Mine was out of necessity - I didn't realize I was short an egg until I had already started assembling! I added a little more milk (I just eyeballed it, didn't measure; but it was probably around 1/8 cup) to compensate for the lost liquid of the egg.
The one I was making was not a traditional quiche recipe, though. It uses shredded hash browns for the crust instead of a pastry crust. I don't know if that makes a difference or not, but my recipe turned out fine. I had made it before so I knew what to expect. It sunk a little more in the middle, but I wasn't trying to win a presentation contest so I didn't care.
I'm an experimental cooker so I say go for it!
The best cook is the Mother of Necessity - experiment, and you will learn more than any book can teach you. Good for you. As for quiche, I have seen recipes that call for as few as three and as many as six eggs to fill the same size pie plate, so I think this is a very forgiving combination of ingredients, as long as the number of eggs and the amount of milk are in the same proportions as the original recipe.
