    Too much egg?

    Hello
    Would using 1 whole egg vs 1/4 egg in a batter ruin everything? I'm making corn dogs for the neighbor's kid & I don't see her eating 16 of them! Can I just use the whole frickin egg? How the heck would one measure 1/4 or 3/8 of an egg anyway?

    TIA

    Not sure that this helps, but an egg is about 3 tbsp.

    I think a whole egg might make the texture weird. I would beat one egg in a bowl then put maybe 2 tsps in the batter.

    I'm not sure if I'm being helpful...but 1 egg (gross weight) is 2 oz. Broken down:

    egg white 1.00 oz
    yolk .67 oz
    shells.33 oz
