any suggestions?

Sweet or savoury, I don't mind, just feel like cooking something...

Flour, butter and milk, perhaps a bit of sugar.

Or there are recipes with buttermilk, but I am guessing if you don't have eggs, you probably haven't got buttermilk lying around the fridge.grin

I think you can use ground linseed in place of eggs but I have never tried it and that assumes you have dried linseed!

Oooh - thanks all. Nope - no linseed, or mayo, or buttermilk.

Shortbread it is!

Hmm. Can you make cheese scones without egg?

you can use egg in scones, but you don't need to. cheese scones would be fine without egg.

In sponges and cakes, you can substitute a spoonful of vinegar for each egg. it does work, I've done it in the past.
