The Mountain House product line of freeze-dried meals has been manufacturing backpacking / recreational foods since the late-1960s. Other brands of backpacking foods mix freeze dried and dehydrated ingredients in their entrees. Dehydrated ingredients cost less and do not have the superior flavor that freeze dried ingredients do. Dehydrated foods often require soaking and long cook times, while freeze dried entrees require only the addition of boiling water and a maximum set time of 10 minutes.

These eggs are great. I was a little nervous about at first, because I had read that some people claim they are soggy. I pulled out the pack, followed the instructions (specifically the draining part), and gave them a try. They were really really good. I saw another poster mention that the bacon was crispy. You might be thinking he just didn't let them sit long enough before eating, but I had the same experience. I followed all the time recommendations and I also had some crispy bacon(in a good way).
There was a tiny bit of water at the bottom of the bad when I finished, but it was nothing that distracted from the meal.
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.
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.
It may just be me but I didn't care for the eggs. I would be sure to sample these prior to packing on a trip. MHO
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)

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.
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.
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
Way too salty for my taste. The breakfast burrito sounds good, might help with the salt. It does work as a quick meal in the morning with little mess. Texture and flavor are not bad.
