If you use egg substitutes on a regular basis, then here is a great alternative to the store-bought brands, this freezes well so make lots and freeze :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 egg whites
  • 14 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 drops yellow food coloring (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl; whisk until smooth.
  2. Store in a glass container or jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and also freezes well.
  3. To make scrambled eggs; fry slowly over low heat in a nonstick frypan.
  4. Note: one serving is 1/4 cup (1 egg equivalent).

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 Recipe #310433 so it didn't matter. Overall I'll make this recipe again for sure!
