Difference Between Large vs. X-Large Eggs?

For eggs that are scrambled, fried, poached, etc., any size eggs will work.  For most other recipes and especially baked items, size is important. The Large egg is the standard most often used and using a different size, without making an adjustment can affect texture, flavor balance and consistency. To substitute another size, use the following chart.
