    Our local Cost -U-Less had Ova-Eze. A foil/mylar type pouch containing 1 dozen dehydrated Whole eggs. I bought a bunch. about $3.79 IIRC

    I've eaten 3 or 4 packs. mainly as a supliment to fried rice. Have also just cooked them up by themselves, like scrambled eggs. Not as good as farm fresh. But still, pretty darn good.
    Texture and flavor are fine.

    I've had scrambled egg mixes from beprepared, honeyville, and the OvaEasy eggs. Best i've found so far is from Augason Farms. I add a teaspoon of butter powder and teaspoon of powdered milk to the mix in a ziploc. Augason Farms carries it in a #2 1/2 can.

    I just tried the OvaEasy dehydrated eggs yesterday and today. The had the texture of the eggs you get at hotel buffets (Also often dehydrated eggs) but they barely tasted like eggs, and tasted more like cardboard or some non-descript hardtack. I really wanted to like them because I need emergency storage protein options - especially for breakfast, and also because they are produced locally. I even cooked them in a bit of bacon grease the first time to help the taste, but it was like music without the treble and bass.

    That said, they are far better - and cheaper - than Mountain House freeze dried eggs. Those are so bad I literally started to gag when I tried them. Those were hideous.

    Dude, you do not need to feel bad about this. You gave us good information which we need to know. Thanks man.

    Like you said, most everything is good in moderation. Thanks for looking out for your brothers and sisters.

    When I was in USN onboard ship powdered eggs were what was for breakfast; never could get past the green color of them.

    My experience with powdered eggs is if you add some onions and peppers, some sausage, your seasoning mix of choice and a liberal dose of Tabasco Green, they aren't half bad. On par with a cheap breakfast burrito. YMMV ...a lot!

    They taste fairly good for powdered eggs.
    Took these into the BWCA (had to repackage - no cans allowed). Not bad, for powdered eggs.

    Looked here but shipping was a bit steep for the smaller amount I needed.

    I use these also. I also like the fact they offer lots of stuff in the smaller cans.

    IMO powdered eggs and dry milk are both best used as components in other recipes. Neither are very good alone.
