• How many eggs= 1 cup egg substitute?

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.
