My almost six year old niece is coming to visit for the Fourth of July, and she is deathly allergic to eggs. Do any of you have any great recipes that are egg-free that I could make for her? I would love to make a potato salad of sorts, but my recipe is full of hard-boiled eggs. Also, any dessert recipes would be wonderful (she loves sweets!). Thanks.
Here is a dessert idea that takes no eggs
1 quart Strawberries (or any berry)
1/2 cup Honey
3 cups plain Greek Yogurt
Put berries and honey in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. In a bowl add the strawberry mixture and fold in the yogurt. Pour mixture into a shallow pan and put in the freezer. Stir every hour for 2 hours. To make it sweeter drizzle with caramel, honey or chocolate. :~)
For baking there is a product called Egg Replacer which contain no egg. It is not as effective as eggs, but my husband cannot tolerate egg either. There is a web site for eggless cooking; just do a search on eggless cooking. There is an eggless mayo that even I prefer. Cornstarch and water works in meat loaf. I have so many substitutions I can't even remember them. Better Homes and Gardens had a drop muffin recipe that doesn't call for eggs. There can be life without eggs.
Soy powder can replace eggs in cakes, etc. Potato salad will be fine without eggs!
