I eat this for breakfast 15 to 20 times a year and have found them to be a lot better if you drain the excess water by opening the zip lock enough to form a small hole to let the water drain. Some of the salt taste goes out with the excess water.

Arguably the least edible food I've ever tasted. Completely nasty. Cooked this on a backpacking trip for my daughter, while I had the eggs with peppers. I made this for my girl and tasted it, absolutely dreadful.
Wanting an honest opinion from her I brought it to the tent and let her try it...her cry from inside the tent was "oh my god this is DISGUSTING!!". and the arm extended out of the tent with the bowl. it's the artificial bacon flavor that is completely nasty. It got half a star because it might keep you alive if necessary.
The eggs and peppers on the other hand were pretty tasty! But after one bite I made the mistake of reading the nutrition label...which reveals that these products are comprised mainly of cholesterol and salt. While I understand that certain fats and salts are required by backpackers, I am definitely reading labels on all backpacking meals..and many are incredibly non-healthy. Definitely read labels on all Mountain House products, some are very reasonable, others are NOT.

OK, it is not THAT bad, but bad enough in my opinion.

I prepared this over a backpacking trip that turned out to be longer than expected. This was in my emergency pack. It got me though, but I wouldn't restock it. I think powdered eggs have more flavor...wow...did I just say that?
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Outdoor enthusiasts have made Mountain House freeze-dried food their first choice for 35 years. Why? Because Mountain House tastes better than other brands! Other backpacking food brands consist of only a few freeze-dried ingredients, mixed with dried seasonings and ingredients, which are then blended, not cooked. Mountain House meals are cooked to give you the delicious homemade flavor you deserve. All you need to add is boiling water, and in just a few minutes, they are ready to eat!
