What Is the Best All-Purpose Egg Replacer?

Good Question

Q: I have a son with dairy and egg allergies and need an egg alternative for savory dishes like meatloaf and casseroles. It is easy to find egg replacement for baking recipes but for other types of recipes — I have no clue what to use.

Is there a good egg replacer out there? Thanks!
