One large egg will be okay.
I used 2 with no problem."

"According to Egg Beater's web site, 3 tablespoons of egg substitue = one egg- there are 5.3 tablespoons in a 1/3 cup so if you use two eggs that should work.(it'd be a smidge more, but I don't think it should alter the recipe too much)"

"Question: How many large eggs are equal to 1/3 cup egg substitute? I have the turkey and beef need to prepare this recipe but need to know how many eggs to use ASAP."

"Very good! I did reduce the horseradish a bit as it is a bit too much for me. I also skip the onion soup and replace it with 1 t of onion powder and 1/2 an onion chopped up and 1 t worceshire sauce. This reduced the sodium, by a fair amount and ups the fiber a tiny bit."
