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 the Backpacker's Pantry Organic Scrambled Eggs. 

Backpacker's Pantry Organic Package.


  • Relatively easy to prepare

  • Organic

  • Resealable package


  • Mealy consistency was a turnoff

  • Virtually unseasoned, so they need spicing up.

  • Powdery and a little harder to mix with water than some

O.K.  This is my second review of backpacker eggs. So, up front I am not a big fan of dry eggs. That being said these are not too bad! I think it is the best of the packaged product I have tasted. 

It has an almost chalky taste to them. We added hot water and had it sit for around 10 minutes, but the eggs were still very grainy and didn't have a great taste.

The directions indicated that we needed to add boiling water, let sit, and then fry on a frying pan. Don't  just added boiling water and let it sit.  Fry them....they taste much better.

Price Paid: not sure
