EGG-Stremely Easy Omelet

Scrambled Egg Mix


I have been backpacking and camping in the great outdoors for many years. One of my favorite breakfasts while camping is the EGG-stremely Easy Omelet. I like cooking this breakfast because I don’t use a single utensil during preparation and it is simple to prepare. If you can boil water you can make the following:

EGG-stremely Easy Omelet


Directions: Mix Provident Pantry Scrambled Egg Mix and any of the above optional ingredients with water in a heavy-duty zip-top bag. Be sure when you are done that the consistency is equal to that of an egg. Drop the pouch into boiling water for apx. 5 minutes. Time may vary. Watch your pouch and when the ingredients are done (like a normal omelet) pull it out and have breakfast. Yes, this can be eaten without even a spoon. Remember to pack out the bag. Keep the environment clean. Happy camping!

    This DOES look way too easy; I'm going to have to order some more freeze-dried goodies and try it out.

    Question - will this same method work with fresh eggs?

    Question 2 - would doing it with egg mix and home-canned tomato sauce (from the garden, instead of tomato powder) work?

    This really has me thinking about some variations for quick and easy breakfasts - not only good when camping and backpacking, but also really useful for getting the family going to work and school with good nutrition on busy mornings. Thanks!

    Just an egg-making tip--if you're using fresh (real) eggs, put about 1 tsp milk (or half-and-half) per egg before scrambling. This greatly improves the scrambling and keeps the eggs moist. Might also work with egg mix (never tried it).

    "... discard the bag ..." should be ".. pack out the bag...," which is what you meant, I'm sure. This will work with fresh eggs, by the way.

    We definitely meant "pack out the bag." Thanks!
