I do generally use Ener-G egg replacer, but I did want to point out that 
most liquid egg subs (like Egg Beaters) are pasteurized so that 
salmonella is no longer an issue.  
So, while people who eat eggs can save money by just buying regular eggs 
and tossing the yolks, for a raw egg situation (like the caesar salad 
dressing or egg nog), the pasteurized product is probably a good idea.
