    It's been awhile since I have used powdered eggs since REI discontinued their powdered eggs. The taste was ok but I am looking for a more flavorful option. Need some advice on where to get them, what brands are good, any powdered version taste ok or go freeze dried?
    I know I can go Mountain House Eggs/Bacon for $32/can but that's as far as my research went before I decided I need to consult my fellow like-minded hiker for some advice. Thanks gang.

    Ova Easy eggs taste more like fresh eggs than some others. http://www.nutriom.com/ I use Honeyville dried eggs for items I bake, and for places where the egg flavor is not obvious since they are (or were) less expensive.

    Mtn House freeze-dried scrambled eggs – with or without peppers and ham – are God-awful. Buy a single package and see what I mean.

    Thanks Bob
    I'll just take your word for it! Update- found the Ova Easy @ REI- might be my best way to go when I combine it with other gear and get free shipping.

    Another option is to go with Mountain House's Breakfast Skillet meal–the usual MH FD eggs, with FD potatoes, sausage, peppers, and onions. Not too bad, and a few more calories than just eggs.

    But Ova Easy is the real deal–in your UL fry pan slathered in olive oil, add Harmony House diced potatoes, Packit Gourmet FD tomato chunks, some FD sausage crumbles or Hormel bacon bits, maybe some FD cheese, and you've got a killer omelet. Add 4 strips of warmed up Hormel shelf stable bacon, and she'll ask you to marry her all over again. Well, maybe if you throw in a toasted buttered bagel or muffin, and a mixed fruit cup?

    Thanks Gary for the menu idea! yeah, that'd be much better than just some eggs in a wrap!

    I recently had a chance to eat powdered eggs from Honeyville and they were not too bad.

    I also had some Rancher's Cut freeze dried scrambled eggs recently and really like them especially with some freeze dried cheese and freeze dried mushrooms. All three were also from Honeyville.

    One of the very good things about Honeyville is their periodic sales which go up to 20% off on everything. Their bulk packaging in cans works well because the lids seal firmly after opening the can, thus protecting the food well until it is used. Their dairy and eggs items make it much easier to cook and bake "real" foods in the backcountry. I have also found their freeze dried and dehydrated vegetables and fruits to be very high quality, with none of the off processing taste found in some other products.
