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 Backpacker's Pantry's Scrambled Eggs.

Backpacker's Pantry Scrambled Eggs package.


  • Best flavor of the group, comes pre-seasoned with some salt and pepper

  • Very good consistency — similar to cooking fresh eggs.

  • Easy to prepare and cook

  • Resealable container

  • My overall favorite


  • They aren’t fresh eggs, but I really had very little to criticize about them.

Here is a detailed rating of Backpacker’s Pantry Scrambled Eggs.

Flavor (plain): 3.5.gif
Some pepper and saltiness already present, fairly good egg flavor

Pepper and cheddar cheese blended in adds some saltiness and bite — I enjoyed this.

How Filling (plain): 4.5.gif
A little more substantial than the organic version, very filling

No significant change with my added ingredients.

A lot of food for a small package, but only feeds one person, half of what the package says.

Heavier than the organic version, but worth the extra weight.

Easy and tastey.


  • Very easy to make
  • Taste is excellent
  • 2 person is plenty for one person

This product is very good. Usually if I can find meals for one person I prefer those. However, this packaging for 2 is not an overabundance. It was very easy to prepare and tasted awesome — just add a little seasoning and you're set to go. I use to be able to find freeze dried sausage and that with the scambled eggs made a filling and satisfing meal. Great way to start the day. Great and fast cleanup as you just eat out of the bag.
