Oatmeal Equivalent Measures

Sometimes when working with recipes the ingredients are not always provided in the measure with which we are most familiar.  So, here is a quick reference for converting dry oatmeal to an equivalent measure which you use regularly.

Cooking Measures – Egg Size Substitutions

This egg size substitution chart is a quick guide for swapping out different size eggs. This chart uses the U.S. large egg as the foundation for the conversion because they are the most common sized called for in modern U.S. recipes.  I’ll be honest here for the larger eggs (Large, Extra-Large, and Jumbo) I just go with 1 to 1.  For smaller eggs (medium, Small and Peewee) I round up to the next whole egg.  I’ve never noticed any harm in doing this. However, if precision is your thing, I have kept a decimal place in the chart and you can choose how to handle them.

This is one of those measures, which I keep coming back too, but can never seem to remember.  So, I thought I would consolidate into a simple reference table.  This can especially help when switching between raw and the various types of pasteurized eggs available in the market for baking and other things.

It is a good idea to keep in mind that eggs vary in size and the these are my best approximates, which is where the art of cook meets subtlety.
