Taste

This dish tastes almost like what you would expect fresh-cooked scrambled eggs, ham, and red and green peppers to taste like. Mountain House did not add any additional spice from what I could tell. Certainly, no black pepper and I could not detect any more salt than normal. Some people complain that Mountain House dishes have more salt than they prefer. However, I have not ever found that to be true, but then I haven’t had every single dish that they make.

This was the first time I had eaten freeze-dried scrambled eggs, and I thought the ham and peppers were perfect. I didn’t think the scrambled eggs were perfect. The freeze drying changes them somewhat, and makes them a little spongy. However, I would still give the eggs 4 out of 5 stars. The other ingredients get 5 stars.

I prepared this breakfast dish according to the instructions, so there was a bit of excess water that had to be drained off after rehydration. I tasted the water, and it tasted like scrambled eggs with ham and peppers. So, if you wanted to leave it in with the dish, it would be fine.

I would say that you would probably get better at preparing this dish if you did it a few times. You could tweak the amount of water, how long you let it rehydrate, and whether or not you drained the water off at the end. That was my perception from eating them for the first time.

Leftovers

This was a one serving pouch, so no leftovers.

Bottom Line

Overall, I would give this dish 4 out of 5 stars. Only because I didn’t think the scrambled eggs were perfect.

However, let me be clear. I would have no trouble eating these on a backpacking trip or in an emergency situation taken right out of food storage. I would always look forward to eating them in whatever situation, because if you can’t have fresh cooked eggs, these are the next best thing.
