Dairy and Egg Substitutions Guide

It’s frustrating to discover you’re out of milk—or eggs or butter—halfway through a recipe. One of these tips might come in handy the next time that happens.

Dairy and Egg Cooking Swaps
  • You can make a buttermilk substitute by mixing 1 c. milk with 1 tbsp. distilled or apple cider vinegar in place of 1 c. buttermilk.
  • Blend equal parts evaporated milk and water to use in place of milk.
  • Substitute 1 egg with 3 tbsp. vegetable oil and 1 tbsp. water, in baking recipes. Substitute no more than 1 egg per recipe with this formula.
  • Making a sour cream substitute is easy! Just use an equal measurement of plain Greek yogurt to replace the sour cream in a recipe, like in this all-time favorite beef stroganoff.
