Quick Tip: Use Smaller Eggs

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright December 29, 2016

Even though (most) recipes call for large eggs, that size is not usually necessary. You can get away with using a medium or a small egg in place of a large one most of the time. EX: If a recipe calls for 3 large eggs, try using 3 small.

This can save you money on your weekly grocery bill. Purchase whatever size is on sale each week.

NOTE: There may be a few baking recipes that really do need large eggs. Experiment with your recipes to see what may need them.
