Gotcha. Difference between you and me, then, is that I eat only those two eggs a week, but have the whole she-bang, and the rest of the week I eat granola! The idea of an all-whites omelette just depresses the bejesus out of me. Suppose I should try it before I knock it, though!

I try for a little variety in the morning. Omlets, bagels, cereals, English muffins, waffles, real eggs with a breakfast meat and fried potatoes.

Side by side, an EggBeaters omlet will lose to real eggs every time. However, on its own with some low fat cheese and bacon bits it ain't half bad.

Now you're just getting me hungry, Andy! And boy, does my granola look dull compared to your breakfasts, or what?

I promise you that next time I'm over your way I'll give those EggBeaters a fair try, how's that?

I agree with Andy, add some cheese or chopped vegies and
egg substitutes can taste decent. I can't eat whole eggs
very often (hands and feet swell) and these satisfy me. I
have used them to make lemon curd, probably won't do
that again.. taste was ok but it was grainy, even after
straining. I've also used them to make tiramisu instead of
the raw egg. It turned out good.
