I buy them at a grocery store. Stop and Shop and Shoprite have then here among others. They have Stop and Shop there don't they?
Also, with green, red and red pepper, onions and some tabasco sauce they are really good.
I have the mountainhouse things but haven't tried them yet.
Oh yeah, use a non stick pan.”
“older generations didn't refridge eggs...it's not a big deal..you do overnight trips in site of showers right?”
“Try getting a small container of egg-beaters. It should stay good for one night. Overlook right?”

opie you seem to be losing me here. your posting are not making any sence to me. i want your input but im just not getting it.
“I think Opie is saying the same as me.
Fresh eggs are ok to backpack with.”
“Here is a suggestion. I bought some dehydrated egg and they tasted fine to me. Here is what I do:
I took a ziplock baggie and put in a measured amount of powdered egg, I then put in 1/2 a teaspon of powdered milk, mixed in some of my own dehydrated onions and green pepper and added 1 tsp of bacon bit. On the outside of the ziplock I wrote the amount of water I required (with a sharpie marker)
When it came time to cook breakfast, I put in the amount of water into the ziplock bag and mixed it up and let it sit. While it is sitting I put on water for coffee and start that boiling. When it is hot I put the entire ziplock in the pot of hot water. The water will cook the eggs right in the baggy. Then then eggs are done to my satisfaction, I throw in some coffee tea bags, sit back eat my eggs out of the baggie and when I am done I have coffee. Not wasting water, fuel and no dishes to do!!!
“mapleleaf, I have no idea where to get powdered eggs, my brother gave me a case of them things, they were USDA powdered eggs. I make them with powdered milk and put in home dried green peps, red peps, onions, oh yeah and Hormel now sells real cooked bacon in packets that don't have to be fridged.”
“King Arthur Flour sells powdered eggs.”
“D'oh! That was me.”
“how can i be losing you, 2-3 others are saying the same thing!?...take fresh eggs, you do like how they taste right?!!
They will keep for about a week..they sell lil plastic protective carriers specially made for camping at walmart, target, kmart, and other outfitters, that can hold 3, 6, 12 eggs.
Refridgeration of eggs is fairly new...remember i'm in the rural part of the US.."country eggs" might lay outside in 80 degree weather for a day or two before someone comes along and grabs it.”
