Can I substitute 2 egg whites for 1 egg in cheesecake?

Is it possible to substitute 2 egg whites for one egg in cheesecake recipes? I would imagine a thickener of some type is necessary?

Dr. Gourmet Says...

Chocolate CheesecakeMaking a healthy cheesecake is not an easy task. I spent countless hours in the test kitchen working on cheesecakes, and simply reducing the amount of eggs or egg yolks doesn't work very well.

You can find two cheesecake recipes on the website. One is for a traditional cheesecake and the other is for a chocolate cheesecake.

Thanks for writing,
