Remember, when making substitutions be sure to measure accurately for best results. Any ingredient substitute may alter slightly the taste, texture, weight, or moisture content of your finished product. Some may alter your recipe more than others, so you need to consider the other ingredients in your recipe whenever making a recipe substitute. Many of the condiment substitutions suggested above will alter the taste of your finished recipe, especially the worcestershire sauce substitute and mayonnaise substitute. For example, egg salad and tuna salad are very different without real mayonnaise.
