Overall Rating:

Early morning bass fishing from my kayak kept me from eating my breakfast until the sun was well up and I was quite hungry.  Nestled into the rear storage compartment was a package of Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon.

I’ve had rehydrated eggs many times over the years, and these were exactly what I remembered.  Flavorless and off texture.  Adding to my disappointment were uncooked bits of egg and a meager portion.

Preparation

Preparation

Preparing the Scrambled Eggs with Bacon was relatively simple up until having to drain the hot water.  Even so, it wasn’t rocket science.  Add 1 cup of boiling water to the dry ingredients, stir, wait 6 minutes, drain water, and eat.

  • Once the hot water is added, you need to thoroughly mix the ingredients again.  We mixed ours for 2 minutes and still had some hard spots of clumped up ingredients.
PROS:
  • Roughly 20 minutes to fully prepare.
  • Most of the preparation time is simply waiting for the ingredients to steep in the boiled water, which is added directly to the original package.

CONS:
  • Draining the very hot water out of the eggs can be tricky as most people don’t care a calendar while hiking.
  • No recommendation to mix dry ingredients thoroughly before filling the package with boiling water.
  • Extremely thorough mixing needed before and after adding hot water.

Taste

Taste

The taste of Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon reminds me of the true MREs I had while in the military.  Which is to say…not very good.  While the eggs weren’t watery, they were flavorless and had a very strange texture.  I could see the tiniest bits of bacon, but never really tasted them either.

PROS:
  • Not watery.

CONS:
  • No flavor.
  • Small amount (1.5 portions) even for a single person.
  • Several gritty bits of eggs that were not quite cooked.
