Ive been using this technique very successfully for quite a while and it really works! If you lightly heat the mixture, it gels even better. I never knew you could make more than one "egg" at a time so thank you for sharing that here! Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #49 August 2012.
