Reviews

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.

Pros

  • Meal in a bag for two
  • Easy to rehydrate
  • Tasty meal
  • Nutritious

Cons

  • Cost, which can be deferred when buying in bulk or seasonal specials.

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 special pricing is available.

Experience

Extensive backcountry camping.

This is my favorite of their meals. Its one of the highest in calories which also helps.

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.

Pros

  • Easy
  • Filling
  • Tasty

Cons

  • Consistency

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 and filling and had a lot of flavor. The salt intake is a bit on the high end, so be aware if you generally avoid high sodium foods. It is an excellent backpacking choice because it is lightweight, filled with nutrition and calories.

A huge benefit is that it cooks quickly with minimal equipment. All you need is boiling water, a measuring cup (key to perfectly cooked meals), and a utensil to stir and then eat the contents right out of the pouch!
