For a comparative Instant Camp Eggs Cook-Off, I tested and reviewed the following packaged plain egg products:

I prepared each egg product for breakfast after early morning hikes, using the same stove and cookwear each time (the stove was an Optimus Nova, and the cookset was an anodized aluminum one with a non-stick coating from Primus). For the seasoned egg versions I added black pepper and cut-up or pre-shredded cheddar cheese.

This review focuses on Cache Lake's Outfitter's Choice Scrambled Eggs.

Here is a detailed rating of Cache Lake Eggs.

Ease of Preparation: 4.gif
Add water and mix, instructions say to cook with a small amount of vegetable oil.

Texture (plain): 3.5.gif
Fairly close to regular scrambled eggs

Texture (seasoned): 4.gif
Cheese gives it a little more firmness and substance

Flavor (plain): 4.gif
Unseasoned out of the package, but does taste like eggs. Oil used during cooking helps.

Flavor (seasoned): 4.5.gif
I learned from experience with other brands and added more cheese. It helped a lot, added some saltiness and brought out the flavor.

How Filling (plain): 4.gif
This makes a somewhat smaller portion than the other brands, but filling nonetheless.

How Filling (seasoned): 4.gif
No significant change with my added ingredients.

Ingredients and Preparation: 4.gif
Having to bring oil or shortening is a minor nuisance, but mixes easily with water.

Servings per Container*: 4.gif
Package says it serves two; I felt like it was either a large breakfast for one, or a small portion for two.

Container Weight: 4.5.gif
Very lightweight and flexible. (Of all the products I tested, the Cache Lake eggs are the only ones that cannot be resealed and would have to be stored in a Ziploc bag.)

Manufacturer's Claimed Product Weight: 2 oz

Trailspace Weight (Product and Packaging): 2.3 oz / 64 g

*(Manufacturer serving sizes reflect the USDA's recommendation of no more than two eggs daily per person.)
