Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for camping, this is a hot meal that will satisfy with fantastic flavor, just like Thanksgiving dinner! As a member of another website, sometimes I receive products in exchange for an honest review and that is the case with this turkey dinner. I had the pleasure of saving this for my first night on the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain, Georgia. The flavor was amazing...just like a Thanksgiving meal. I'm a chef, so I'm picky, and I thought that it was very satisfying and the seasoning… Full review

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

rated 4 of 5 stars Crave it, even when at home. This is by far one of our favorite meals. The flavor is excellent. As with many of these meals, we add a little extra water and usually let it sit a bit longer than instructed. If you don't want to gamble on a flavor, this one is recommended. Full review

Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent backcountry meal! My favorite of the Mountain House variety. Have sampled 4-5 different offerings, this being the overwhelming favorite. Honestly, it's really good.

I don't have the time or talents to prepare a fancy meal, so I lean on these for sustenance. Never been disappointed… Full review

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

rated 4 of 5 stars On the trail, Mountain House's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce satisfies the palette and fills the stomach (when you eat the whole bag). The taste is pleasant and far less salty than I was expecting. Being neither a fan of spaghetti or pre-packaged backpacking meals, I was quite pleased. Those who know me know that I'm not a fan of pre-packed backpacking meals. I find them usually flavorless and too salty. Usually, I either dehydrate my own meals, or I steer towards at-home easily prepared meals.  Side… Full review

Pasta Primavera

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a new favorite meal from Mountain House. It was cheesy, delicious, filling, and very easy to make. The veggies were good also. Great vegetarian option! I tried this meal as a member of another site in exchange for a review while at Lodgepole Overflow Campground in Lake Alpine. This meal was very easy to make and filling and had a lot of flavor. It is an excellent backpacking choice because it's lightweight and delicious. A huge benefit is that it cooks quickly with minimal equipment. All… Full review
