Recipes called for a yolk

I use egg beaters and egg whites. If a recipe needs a yolk what do I need to do?

you're going to need a real egg, far as I can see.

Gosh, I know of no substitute for an egg yolk in baking.

The good news is that when you toss the yolk into the mix you still have the white to do with as you usually do.

Ok here is what you need to do:

take an egg, crack it open, strain out the egg whites so only the yolk is left...

Seriously, unless you can find a conversion for egg beaters to egg yolks I think you will be stuck having to use an egg. Maybe borrow just what you need from a neighbor?
I did do a quick Google search but could only find substitutions on egg whites for whole eggs and such.
