I opened a 10 year old can of these eggs to use them up because they were getting old. Just as a test I made them side by side with real scrambled eggs, adding freeze dried sausage to both. While the egg mix looked and tasted slightly different from the fresh they tasted good. Some of my family preferred the dried eggs, while others preferred the fresh. I had purchased these eggs in a "Y2K didn't happen so we have excess stock" year supply and never used them because they sounded gross. I will now be buying more because they will make a great addition to our food storage.

Some of the reviews state (correctly) that these eggs require a lot of mixing to get rid of the lumps. Easy fix - put the powder and water in a screw-top plastic container and shake them. No lumps! And the shaking process traps some little air bubbles which makes the eggs even lighter. Bonus!

When I first opened the can I was doubtful. As I mixed the powdered egg mix with water I could actually SMELL that old, familiar, "scrambled egg" scent that boosted my confidence a bit. The mixture took a lot of stirring and (I eventually got out my hand-mixer to get rid of the lumps which took an extra 30 seconds of my time- that was the ONLY downside to this product!) Then I decided to add some Provident Pantry dehydrated egg whites for extra lean protein. I honestly could not tell the difference between this and fresh eggs, and neither could my son. The mix turned out perfectly!I highly recommend this product!

I have used the scrambled eggs to make omelets for my husband. They are just as good as fresh eggs.

These eggs taste great! From the first to the last bite we couldn't tell they weren't "real" eggs. They taste very good, and each member of our family thought the consistency was good, too. Get this for your food storage. You won't be disappointed! :)

These eggs are awesome. My favorite way to eat scrambled eggs it to saute up some bacon pieces with chopped onions, green peppers, and celery. This morning I sauteed freeze-dried green peppers and celery (I forgot the onion) and some bacon flavored TVP. Then I added the re-hydrated Scrambled Egg Mix. The eggs were wonderful. I couldn't tell the eggs weren't fresh.

Okay, so its not real scrambled eggs but my kids really like them. I bought it to try out and see if we could survive off of this and I think we will have no problem. My kids favorite way to eat these eggs is to combine it with freeze dried sausage and roll it up in a tortilla. I even served it to some friends this way to see if they could tell the difference and not one noticed. In fact, all the breakfast burritos were gone!
