Description

Eggs that come in an unbreakable shell.

Now you can bring the eggs. Mountain House's Precooked Scrambled Eggs with Bacon yields enough for two, half-cup servings. It's the easy way to make breakfast. Just add boiling water to the pouch and watch the sun come up while you eat.

Better options out there

This breakfast was not great at all. The eggs tasted horrible. I would rather have a cold breakfast than. Some granola and dried fruit would make a better breakfast than this.

Great Breakfast!

A quick review of the Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon.

3 5

Not for me...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So far I am not a huge fan of Mtn. House breakfasts!? I prefer oatmeal over all of them. This is a meal that is light & convenient but tastes like Styrofoam in my opinion... I guess it is better than not eating...

Okay

Eggs with bacon is just okay. The ease of use is up there with other MH offerings, but the taste is lacking. Try the breakfast skillet instead.

4 5

Not too bad...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Other than the egg texture, this breakfast is good enough for me. Like mentioned below, you may get better taste with the skillet meal, but I can't complain with this if it's all ya got

no thanks

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I thought i'd give eggs in a bag a try... I was NOT too stoked on this meal. I would recommend the granola or oatmeal for breakfast.

Ok

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ok, but much prefer the breakfast skillet wrap, the eggs are better and the whole meal is much more tasty, especially in a wrap.

Not satisfied.

In my opinion, these eggs are mediocre at best. It is nice to wake up to a warm meal in the backcountry, but I can not get past the texture and the taste. Freeze dried eggs are about as good as they sound, and lets be honest, they don't sound good. I was impressed with the bacon. Great taste and texture, but that does not out weigh the eggs. Also, make sure you dump out some of the water. I personally am sticking to oatmeal.

The Mountain House scrambled eggs w/ bacon tastes good. The Mountain House scrambled eggs w/ bacon has very natural flavor, nothing fake tasting really , with the exception of the egg texture. The eggs are a tad solid feeling, unlike fresh made scrambled eggs which are light, but this is a frieze dried meal so that is to be expected. This Mountain House scrambled eggs w/ bacon is a great morning meal, packs small and light. Made in the USA, always a plus! Berz Rating: 86/100

Pleasantly surprised, but prefer the ham/peppers version

Let's be honest, freeze-dried eggs do NOT sound good. But these are actually not too bad(especially after a long hike when you are starving). Make sure you drain the extra water. I still prefer the Ham/Pepper version of this because it has a lot more flavor but you could add some pepper/salt to spice this up a bit. For two people, I like to pair one bag of eggs with one bag of the granola w/milk and blueberries for a great breakfast that provides lots of energy.

Great breakfast

This is a great breakfast from mountain house. One thing I've noticed with mountain house is the recommended amount of water is always to much. Not a biggie though just drain the excess water. This is really good for coming out of a package. The eggs can be a little mushy, but it still tasted great. I would recommend this to anyone.

Eggs hold flavor

The title might make it seem that this is a good thing, but in my experience, the eggs taste bacon-ish and are nothing like eggs you'd make at home. With the rest of their meals (especially their pasta ones) the food tastes like it was just cooked. The eggs, unfortunately, do not. Maybe I used too much water.

My backcountry menu:

Rather than write a small review for each individual item I recently purchased I thought I would share it all in one concise review. (Note with most Mountain House I add 2-3 oz less than it recommends)

Recommend:

Breakfast:
Backpacker's Pantry Granola with Blueberries and Milk – Favorite :) (serve warm)
AlpineAire Strawberry Honey Granola With Milk – healthy and good! (serve warm)
Backpacker's Pantry Denver Omelet (needs pan) – best quick eggs I have tried.

Lunch/Dinner:
Mountain House Chicken Ala King – Favorite :)
Backpacker's Pantry Katmandu Curry - Yum
Mountain House Macaroni And Cheese – Oh to be a kid again!
AlpineAire Chicken Gumbo – Delicious

Sides/Deserts:
Mountain House Potatoes And Cheddar With Broccoli – Favorite :)
Mary Janes Farm Organic Garlic Pesto Fry Bread – I love bread! (bring oil)
Mountain House Peas – Eat your veggies! Add 1-2 oz less water
Mountain House Corn – Favorite, Add 1-2 oz less water :)
Mountain House Green Beans – Add 1-2 oz less water
Mary Janes Farm Organic Brownies – Yes really good!
Mountain House Ice Cream Sandwich – Don’t get the Neapolitan, this is much better.
Mountain House Blueberry Cheesecake – Nice size berries, make in a bowl NOT the package. (Note it will NOT keep
Overnight).

Pass:
Backpacker's Pantry Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes – The Mountain House Potatoes and Cheddar with Broccoli are MUCH
better even the resident mouse in our cave didn’t like it.
Mountain House Scrambled Eggs With Bacon - Backpacker's Pantry Denver Omelet is much better IMO but requires a
pan.
Mountain House Scrambled Eggs With Ham - Backpacker's Pantry Denver Omelet is much better IMO but requires a pan.

Neutral:
Mary Janes Farm Organic Couscous And Lentil Curry – Not bad but I like my curry with more curry!
Mary Janes Farm Organic Black Bean Corn Bread – Not bad but NOT cornbread just a bread with some cornmeal in it.
Mountain House Noodles And Chicken – Yet to try will update
Mountain House Pasta Primavera – Yet to try will update
Mountain House Mexican Chicken With Rice – Yet to try will update
Mary Janes Farm Organic Alfredo Pasta – Yet to try will update
Backpacker's Pantry Chana Masala – Yet to try will update

Good breakfast

This stuff is great for backpacking. They are light weight and easy to prepare for the amount of food they have. They say they are two servings, but I'm a lean guy and can easily scarf one down by myself, especially on a trip when I'm hiking long distances.

opps,....ALL GONE !!!!

I was supposed to let the rest of the group try this. But it was good enough,..i got carried away and ate it all myself ! They just had to take my word for it. It could be the fact that we had hiked 7 miles into the woods and up the mt.,...so i was hungry. But this Mountain House eggs and bacon is good enough that i will make room for more of these on every hiking trip i go on !

Meh

Not bad, but you need to find the right mixture of water. The specified one cup is too much, and when I've tried to scale it back slightly it seems too dry. Good in a pinch and great on tortillas, but look for the breakfast skillet. It's WAY better.

Responded on

I used it this weekend and believe it was a fine product. The amount of water called for on the directions makes them to mushy. So I did it by eye, they came out perfect and the bacon was crunchy. The size of the packet does not take up much space in your pack either.

Responded on

Update: They've modified the instructions to tell you to drain it now....guess I was dumb for not thinking of that before. I put in a cup, let it sit and then drain...not too bad.

Decent

Decent breakfast. Bacon flavor is strong but a little bit fake. Add a bit less water than called for and the eggs won't be soggy. Overall, not the best I have had, but, not the worst

LESS WATER = NOT RUNNY

I bought 2 of these to try them out on my last backpacking trip.
The first one was runny and I kept draining it but it never ended. I just added Tapatio and ate it.
The next one I used 1/4 less water and swished it around to fully submerge everything.
Perfect Eggs! No Sog!
I added more Tapatio anyway because thats how I like my eggs.
Definitely better than oatmeal.
I'm bringing these every trip for breakfast.
I needed 2 to stuff me.
Maybe 1 would work if I had tortillas and oatmeal on the side.
