  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 drops yellow food coloring (optional)

Great recipe! I have been looking for a good egg substitute. Instead of using the yellow food coloring in the recipe, I add two teaspoons of the yolk to give it a slightly yellow color and a little added protein.

I have been making this for years. The other day I made a creme brulee that called for 6 egg yolks. I saved the whites, mixed up the egg substitute the next a.m. for breakfast. Easy, quick and economical. This does produce a lighter egg product than the store bought. Thanks for posting.

I gave this recipe 4 stars. This worked very nice mixed up nicely. My only problem was the dry milk didn't completely mix up, but that didn't matter because I used this recipe in Simple Sweet Potato or Pumpkin Muffins (Low Calorie) so it didn't matter. Overall I'll make this recipe again for sure! Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)
