I am a total convert to egg substitutes. In omelets, they are great, maybe a slight difference in taste but if you have veggies and herbs in it, there's no issue. I love them in recipes that call for eggs because of the cholesterol and calories.

I am going to your SP, LiquorLady--I need something for dinner and a frittata would be great!

I use egg beaters for my fritatas! They come out fine. I don't usually put mine in the oven, put just let it cook on the stove...They are really good! I do most of my breakfast casseroles with egg beaters...In the casseroles I find it actually takes them a bit longer to cook. I love real eggs but you have two of them and you are basically over your saturated fat for the day, that's why I mainly use egg beaters.

I would try with a small one first. I use them all the time but believe they are mostly egg whites. They may not rise like whole eggs.

I use the egg substitute that I get at Trader Joe's but I expect it's similar to Eggbeaters -- and that's all I ever use in my frittatas. In the recipe I have posted on my SPage, I used to use half eggs and half egg substitute, but when I went to all egg substitute, there wasn't any difference except in the calories and fat.

I haven't tried it but I wouldn't see why not. Just keep an eye on it in case it bakes fast. Have you tried the egg beaters with a touch of yolk yet? I haven't seen it in a store...but heard about it on tv.
What are you putting in your fritatta? I saw a fun recipe on Rachel Ray where she put egg pasta in hers with a white sauce...but OMG the calories would be staggering! Butter, EVOO, high fat cheeses...(So I'll not post it until I can come up with a better healthier version!)

Can you make a good fritatta with Egg Beaters? Do they cook up the same in the oven?
