I can't count the number of times I have started making a dessert only to find out half way into it that I don't have any eggs. This has started happening a lot since I taught my 2 older kids how to make scrambled eggs by themselves. It is usually on a Sunday evening that this happens to me. Since we observe the Sabbath Day, that means no going to the store. I also refuse to go to a neighbor and borrow anything. A few months ago Maceys was having a big case-lot food storage sale and I saw this product:
I thought it would be good to have in my food storage for an emergency. Not an earthquake or end of the world emergency, but one of my Sunday night dessert making emergencies.
Tonight was one of those nights. My oldest has been asking me to make lemon bars all week long and I finally gave in tonight. I made the crust and had it baking in the oven before I realized that my scrambled egg making kids had raided the last of my eggs. I remembered my dried egg mix and decided to give it a try for the first time. My lemon bars tasted just the same as always and no one could tell a difference.
The only problem is, now I have a gigantic can opened that I will have to use before it goes bad. I wonder if I can buy this product in smaller individual packages?
If you want the recipe it is in the Better Homes and Garden cookbook (The one with the red and white checkered cover).
