Rated 4 out of 5 by from these ain't your mom's scrambled eggs well, take whatever you know about scrambled eggs with bacon and throw it out the window or else you will be disappointed. Mountain House comes up with a whole new texture for these eggs. You have to realize that these were freeze dried; they're not going to be the scrambled eggs you remember growing up. Yes, they are a little spongy, but they don't taste bad. Yes, the bacon bits are small, but there are tons of them! I had these eggs two mornings in a row and I was very satisfied (despite the added MSG and tons-o-cholesterol). Not the healthiest breakfast out there, but hey, you're camping, you're going to burn it off anyway, right?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solution for excess water The idea of draining out the excess water really bothered me, because somewhere in my past I was told never to dump food out on the trail, especially near a camp site. And since I like the idea of eggs and bacon, I came up with a novel idea. I add a little extra boiling water to the pack and add a packet of instant grits (butter flavor) and stir it in well. The grits absorb any excess water and add a bit of flavor to the meal. Now I can have grits, eggs and bacon on the trail, and no excess water to drain off. I also let the pack sit for about 10 minutes before eating. Gives the grits time to fully rehydrate. Yes, I know that no self-respecting Southerner would ever condescend to eating instant grits, but when you are out on the trail, you have to be flexible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You're adventurous right? If you're not adventurous enough to explore new things, then why are you sitting in the woods rehydrating food? I absolutely love this meal and have had it dozens upon dozens of times. I suppose all these bad reviews are to be expected though, because it really doesn't taste anything like eggs... or.. bacon. It tastes like something you've never had before and will never find anywhere else! And it's delicious. I sometimes have cravings for this even at home. Or at work. Or at a dance club. Or in New Jersey. I suppose the MSG could be partly to blame for how great this bizarre substance tastes, but there is more to it than just that, and it can only be understood by those who understand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put it in a tortilla! I'm shocked by the negative reviews. This was my first mountain house product and I was really impressed. It looked weird at first, but tasted really good. I made sure to squeeze a lot of the water out since the eggs do retain the water. Maybe putting them in a tortillas made it taste good also. It was like a breakfast burrito! I picked one up because it was at a good price and I'm glad did. I took a can of beans which fell over when I turned around for 5 seconds and was much heavier. Cheaper by far, but I think for the price you are getting very lightweight, delicious and easy meals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but a little runny. Use much less water than prescribed or it will turn out runny. It will still be eatable but it will be more like eating a watery stew. The flavor is there though and the bacon bits were perfect. Enjoyed it very much after figuring how much water to cook it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sumting Wong! Tried this this morning just as a quick breakfast and wanted to try it before getting on a trail. SOOOOO Glad I did. Either I did something wrong, or this one is ... well gross. We mixed the water like we were supposed to, cooked it as long as we were supposed to.... and the eggs just tasted slimy and gross. Tried to spice it up with some seasoning... same. I wont be adding this one to our packs again, and very thankful that we tried it at home before getting on a trail. Ill be sticking with the Biscuits and Gravy from here on out. - Just read others reviews on it, seems this is a I love it, or I hate it meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from is it freeze dried? The guy at the Rei store told me to try this product when I asked which freeze dried food to try. I am new at all this and all I have heard is my friends telling me that freeze dried food is gross. I am getting ready for my first backpacking trip and so I am trying out many different flavors. This one I ate the whole package of. I was told not to use the full amount of water it calls for so I didn't. Other meals I take one bite of and that is enough for me. I liked the smokey flavor. It was a strong flavor so it didn't taste blande at all. It wasn't as filling as I hoped but I won't complain because at least I know this is one meal that will be going on the trip with me

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok in an Emergency Mountain House makes many fine freeze dried foods. This isn't one of them, unless you want a tasteless product with 110% of daily cholesterol in one serving. The pieces of scrambled egg have the taste and consistency of a torn yellow sponge. And don't look for the bacon to save the day: it's almost insignificant and what little there is, collects as a desultory pile at the bottom of the bag. Ultimately, I ate it. I was hungry, what can I say. I shall not eat it again.

What is the difference between this and the same flavor in the "pro pack" ?

Asked by: newbie
​The Pro-Pak meals are vacuum packed to prevent expansion at high altitudes and to keep them as compact as possible. They generally have less food in these packs but can vary from meal to meal and we suggest looking at the calories instead of serving size; this meal and the Pro-Pak version of this meal do have the same ingredients.
