In our quest to decide how to spend our long term food storage money, we have been trying a lot of different dehydrated foods. Powdered eggs were kind of a stretch for us because we have heard so many horrible things about them. We have used "whole eggs" for years in our baked goods, and have never had a complaint, but powdered scrambled eggs? That would be a real test.
We opened our #10 tin of powdered scrambled eggs and gave it a try. The directions called for 2 tablespoons of powder to 3 tablespoons of warm water. We measured enough for 8 eggs, so that everyone could try it and give their honest opinion.
The eggs did not smell like "real" eggs. They mixed up well (I used an egg beater), but of course had a different consistency than eggs fresh from a chicken. We put salt and pepper and a few chives in the eggs (just like we use for regular scrambled eggs) and poured the mixture into a pan with melted butter. They cooked rather quickly and soon began to resemble scrambled eggs. Minutes later, our eggs were ready for the breakfast plate.
Sir Knight was the first taste tester. As he always uses Tabasco Sauce on his eggs, he sprinkled a judicious amount on these eggs too. He cautiously tested the eggs and deemed them "not horrible". They do not taste like normal eggs, and their texture is different, but they are not bad, just different. If you are expecting eggs, you will be disappointed, but if you are expecting an egg substitute, these are a fine substitute.
Master Calvin and Princess Dragon Snack ate their eggs with no complaint, although they did not go back for seconds. Master Hand Grenade put Tabasco on his (which he does not normally do) and Miss Calamity ate all of hers, deeming them "so so". I thought they were quite passable, although not like real scrambled eggs.
All in all, we would buy the powdered scrambled eggs again. We would not eat them as plain scrambled eggs, however. They would be fine in an omelet, a frittata or even breakfast burritos - anything that scrambled eggs were secondary to the meal itself. They are not a scrambled egg worth taking center stage.
While we would drink and rotate the Morning Moo's milk, the scrambled egg powder is strictly long term storage food. It is not something we would keep on the shelf to round out our pantry, but we would store it for a worst-case scenario event.
Our family gave the scrambled egg powder a two out of five star rating.
Walmart (in some locations) have begun carrying the Augason Farms survival foods. Rosaur's carries a good selection and they are available online from Costco and at some Costco warehouses. Long term food storage is finally becoming mainstream. Are you worried yet?
