  • How many large eggs equal 3 Xtra Large?
    The recipe calls for three extra large eggs. The store was out but I have large eggs. Should I use four large eggs?

    Thanks,
    Patti

    Depending on what it is, but I would probably just use three, also.

    Ok, I'll use three. Thank you both! And to tell you the truth, I'm in the middle of pie making and can't remember off hand which recipe I'm putting those eggs in lol !!!

    lol @ patti! I had all my ingredients out for three pies today and had the same problem!

    I vote for three also!

    Patti,
    I'm sure I read somewhere that 3 extra large eggs would be 4 large or 5 medium eggs...there was a site somewhere with a chart but I can't find it.

    If it were me I'd use 4 large eggs anyway...that's what I do if a recipe calls for a certain amount of large eggs and I only have medium...I just add an extra egg to be on the safe side.

    I would stick with the 3 eggs.For years I bought only medium size eggs and when a recipe said 3 eggs it was 3 eggs,even though the assumption is use large eggs in every recipe.There was never a problem! Pat
