Biscuits and Gravy

rated 5 of 5 stars I started carrying these a few years ago, used to have freeze dried pork chops that were a real treat from typical trail food but these are just great with a cup of coffee. Of all places I happened to find a rack of these at Walmart and bought one for a week-long backpacking trip. After having for breakfast quickly realized I should have brought more. Normal breakfast during such trips is rather unfulfilling on a crispy morning over a small fire. I have also started carrying dehydrated bacon, so… Full review

Biscuits and Gravy

rated 5 of 5 stars This is what backpacking food should taste like! Mountain House has hit a home run with the Biscuits and Gravy, packing in much more flavor than expected, and really getting the textures spot-on.

Hearty Stew with Beef

rated 5 of 5 stars This beef stew tempts the tummy and the tastebuds!

This beef stew is a medley of tummy pleasing comfort foods wrapped into a meal that's perfect for a blustery… Full review

Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole

rated 5 of 5 stars This really tastes like Thanksgiving!! As a member of another website, I am sometimes given products to test in exchange for a review. During one of my last backpacking trips I rewarded myself for the 8+ mile hike into the campground with Mountain House's new 2-Serving Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole. I’ll admit that initially after reading the description I was a little skeptical, however, I think the best way of describing this meal is that it tastes like Thanksgiving!! The large chucks of… Full review
