OvaEasy Whole Egg Crystals

Will never have to worry about the eggs bag breaking in my pack! When I first saw these several years ago, my first thought was, "more powdered eggs that will taste like regurgitated powder."  The directions seemed very simple—mix contents with water, stir, and cook like normal eggs.  So I made a small batch, making sure to use the exact amounts of eggs and water. They need to be cooked just like "real" eggs without any other special considerations. Of course the final proof is in the eating. Full review

OvaEasy Whole Egg Crystals

These are the best tasting reconstituted eggs I've ever had. The scrambled egg texture, color, and flavor makes it difficult to tell they didn't just come out of the shells. They look, taste, and feel like freshly scrambled eggs. I'm not sure I would be able to tell the difference if I hadn't prepared them myself. I haven't yet prepared them on a trip, but I did a test run at home in my back-country cold-handled skillet on the small stove top burner. I followed the instructions for portioning exactly.

Wild Zora Instant Grain-Free Cereal

These instant cereals are a great alternative to the normally sugar heavy options available. If you are fed up with all of the sugar ladened breakfast cereals, then there is no need to look any further. Wild Zora definitely is the niche product that I have never been able to find at the grocery store. Don't get me wrong, all of those breakfast cereals are delicious, but if they're gonna contain as much sugar as a cinnamon roll I'm gonna eat the ladder. At first glance when I opened the box I really… Full review

Butternut Mountain Farm Maple Syrup Pouch

When we are canoe or car camping, we enjoy making pancakes or French toast for breakfast. As Vermonters, "pancake syrup" just doesn't cut it, since we require pure Vermont maple syrup! For years, we sought a safe and spill-proof method for packing small quantities of maple syrup. In the past two years, we have used 1 oz. pouches of pure Vermont maple syrup produced and packaged by a local company, and have found it the easiest, most secure, and most satisfying way to carry this delicious camping… Full review

Next Mile Meals Denver Omelette

Next Mile Meals are made low carb for ketogenic dieters, but omnivores can add their own carbs to create a hearty meal for one or enough to share for two. While I enjoyed test eating the dinners I've previously reviewed, this breakfast offering came up short for me. Flavor and texture turned me off as I'll describe in the detailed review. Next Mile Meals specializes in low carb meals for the ketogenic adventurer because it grew out of one hiker's attempt to stay on the diet while hiking the Pacific… Full review

Mountain House Breakfast Skillet

This 4-ounce container (like many of the Mountain House entrees) when easily rehydrated, is large enough for two...provided you have a side of toast/tortilla/bagel and coffee. Delicious and nutritious. Somewhat expensive, but if you get on the Mountain House website/mailing list, you can get yearly specials, which can cut costs. Fast, easy camp meal for two. Mountain House has a complete line of affordable breakfast, lunch, or dinner entrees....even deserts! Recommend utilizing their website as… Full review

Patagonia Provisions Organic Breakfast Grains

A fully organic hot breakfast cereal, packing 400 calories and 7 grams of protein per package, this is the earthiest of cereals I’ve tried. I didn’t care for the taste.

Packit Gourmet Good Day Sunshine Bowl

Oatmeal again??? I realize that it seems like I review food here a lot. Okay, one of the reasons I hike is to justify the food I eat. Having been a long time fan of Packit Gourmet, I was eager to try this breakfast option. A quick trip to Lassen Volcanic NP was a great excuse. I like my oatmeal to be kind of busy, and the Good Day Sunshine Bowl did not disappoint. Aside from rolled and steel-cut oats, this cereal includes mangos, currants, cranberries, pecans, almonds, coconut, quinoa, chia, pumpkin… Full review

Mountain House Breakfast Skillet

This meal was very easy to make and filling and had a lot of flavor. Everything heated well though the eggs were a bit runny for my taste. The flavors were good and the meal was very hearty. If weight isn’t a concern I think this would go amazing in a tortilla with some hot sauce as to me it tasted like the inside of a breakfast burrito. 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… Full review
