I bought some Egg Beaters for the first time the other day. I made scrambled eggs this morning with them and they turned out pretty good. I was not sure what to expect. Have you tried Egg Beaters before? Did you like them?

I read the other post sso I know what you are now talking about. I too thought that you meant something that would beat the eggswil not post much this week as too much work plus two projects being undertaken - a new swimming pool at work and a new gazebo! Workmen drive me CRAZY!

Let me know when that new swimming pool is done. I'd be willing to test it out for you guys.

Will do! I'm going to go down there now and see how they are doing. I don't envy them as it is so HOT! I got the tuna recipe but the 'lady' has changed it a bot! Aren't some people odd about their recipes? anyway , I know what she put in the one she brought as she told me so I will send it to you.

I have never tried them. I just use your regular old standard large grade A egg from the carton. I've never thought about using them unless a recipie specifically requires it, but even then I would second guess my purchase and the recipie.

I only bought them because my 9 year old wanted to make me breakfast for Mother's Day. I figured the egg beaters would be easier for him to deal with.

no, i haven't tried egg beater before. am perfectly contented with the fork to beat the eggs (provided of course that the menu's direction just says beat the eggs or scramble them) and not whisk. whiskers and egg beaters are the same, right?

The Egg Beaters that I am referring to are a product you find in the store. It basically looks like a cardboard milk carton and it has beat up egg whites in it that they add some stuff to to make it yellow like scrambled eggs.

I haven't used them lately, I did use them a few years ago when they first came out and I didn't like them.

They just came out with the ones with Yolk in them. I wonder how much different they taste than the ones you tried years ago.

Anytime I decide to go on a diet I buy egg beaters. They aren't bad. I thought they tasted a lot like regular eggs. I tend to make omelets out of mine, with some veggies added. We've also added them to real scrambled eggs for the kids. But real eggs are cheaper, so I don't normally buy the egg beaters unless I'm trying to save the calories, fat, or cholesterol.

When I was around ten, my mom decided to get into really healthy cooking. So she bought Egg Beaters. Now at the time, I didn't like them, and she didn't make me eat them after the first occasion. However, I was a child then, and I like a whole lot of things now that I didn't back then. Besides, that was 18 years ago. Maybe the taste has improved. I'm going to get some when I go back to Walmart to see.

I do buy egg beaters and I use them for myself and also in baking. Of course I do it to cut down on the cholesterol and fat content of dishes. Also, years ago I had my gallbladder removed because I had gallstones. Since then, me and eggs don't get along so well together. But I can make an omelette using egg beaters and I find they taste great. Of course I'm sure to add other ingredients like crunchy green peppers, sliced mushrooms, onions, low fat cheese and low fat ham. Mmm. I'm getting hungry for one now. When I use them, I still add skim milk and whisk them. I make the rest of my family their omelettes first using regular eggs and then I make mine after theirs are done, using the same fry pan or skillet. I've also found that some restaurants now offer the option of substituting egg beaters in place of eggs in their recipes. Sometimes they cost a bit more and sometimes they don't, depending on the restaurant. I say enjoy :)

Hi Lily! I have used Egg Beaters in the past, but I was not crazy about the flavor. I do think they are good in recipes, though, if you do not have fresh eggs. I would try them again if i thought they improved the flavor! Have a great day!
