Well, those look interesting. I may need to give them a try. The last brand of powdered egg I tried (recommended on another backpacking site) did not go over well.

Many of you prefer those dehydrated whole eggs. Some of us need to avoid cholesterol, so dehydrated egg whites are good. At a minimum, they work for trail recipes that call for eggs. I use Deb El Just Whites, in a 3-oz container.

Whatever you do, if you mix water with the dehydrated powder, add in some oil to restore the oily egg texture. I use olive oil, but you could try corn oil, peanut oil, or any other.

On one group backpack trip, I got up early and whipped up some dehydrated eggs for breakfast. Then, to add some illusion, I set out an empty dozen-size egg carton by the kitchen. After breakfast, everybody thanked me that it was a good idea for me to have brought along fresh eggs, or so they thought.

Can those of us used to the MH and Freezer Bag Cooking style of eating, rehydrate these eggs in the same manner as we do with our MH and Freezer Bag style meals?

The website seems to recommend mixing and then cooking. I'd be interested if you can boil the water and then add it to the powdered egg mix and stir, close up the bag and let it "cook" / rehydrate.

Does anyone know if this alternate method would work?

Party On,

Newton

It doesn't look like it. It seems to require cooking. "Once OvaEasy is reconstituted with water, it behaves exactly like any liquid whole egg"

Of course, if you don't mind an egg shake...

I read about these! They taste so good because they actually dehydrate the chicken before it lays the egg! The egg is already dehydrated when the chicken lays it. Science, how cool.

Yep, I have been recommending OvaEasy since I first got them through PackitGourmet a couple years back. They taste, look and smell like fresh. They are worth the cost!

Ova Easy is our preferred brand, that and the scrambled egg mix from Walton Feed. I've also had luck with Adventure Egg.

AE is quite good although I have to say that Ova holds my #1 spot. For me it is the smell that won me over.

I would love to try the OvaEasy eggs but the shipping for a bag is more than the eggs.

Anyone have a single eggs worth they could part with?

I called the company and they don't send samples and have a good explanation.

I will paypal shipping cost if anyone would send a sample.

My wife will kill me if I spend money experimenting with "another" expensive camping food item
that we don't use.

Has anyone tried to dehydrate uncooked eggs for mixes etc? I am going to try this weekend in my new nesco.

Brent, be very very careful if you choose to do it. Salmonella is a real risk.

If you want eggs for mixes, not for cooking outright check out the 1 lb bags that Frontier Foods carries online.

My new Nesco Pro has a temp setting and I plan to set it at 160deg for a period of time to kill anything nasty.
