You can buy Energ-G online at several different websites (one of which is www.veganessentials.com).
And my favorite vegan cookbook, HOW IT ALL VEGAN, also lists the following as easy-to-find egg alternatives (each of these is equal to one egg):
1/2 banana (best used in desserts or other sweet baked goods)
1/2 cup soft tofu (the authors recommend using a food processor to get rid of any grainy bits)
3 tbsp applesauce (also for sweet recipes)

I have the same problem finding egg replacer in my city too- I even checked Whole foods and Trader Joes, who both said they didn't have any :(
Also look for nutritional yeast for the coating. As for baking, say cornbread or muffins or whatnot, I mix 1 tb flaxmeal w/ 3tb warm water per egg needed.
Actually AZ the recipe I want to make does call for egg replacer to dip the pieces into prior to coating the tofu in the flour, but i will go ahead try everyone's advice and use a liquid for this purpose and see how it turns out.
For the use you describe I would think it only needed to be wet; I wouldn't have thought to use egg replacer for that.
I would use soy or rice milk, as the other poster mentioned, or maybe a balsamic vinegar or something other flavored liquid that would complement the other seasonings.

Oooo That sounds yummy! I'll give it a try thanks.
When I make baked tofu sticks, I dip them in a mixture of soy milk and flour before rolling them in bread crumbs.

Wegmans has everything it seems so I would certainly check there natural food section...
Best of luck to you!
Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't, you're right! :0)
So far I cannot find any EnerG egg replacer or any other brand for that matter(anyone in the WNY area know if Wegman's carries it? Tops doesn't). There are not too many health food stores around me either.
I need it for dipping tofu into prior to rolling it in seasoned flour for frying(so the flour will stick). I figure that there must be something else I can use until I locate some real egg replacer.
Thanks for your help.
