Has anyone used these? Are they any good?

They are the best dry egg product I have ever used. We usually take fresh eggs, but in a pinch, I will use these.

Yes they are the best I have found. Can actually be cooked and eaten like scambled eggs.

I agree! I purchased from REI. They were the cheapest that I could find for buying a 1 dozen package.

I will have to give them a try. I had the freeze dried eggs this summer. I will never make that mistake again.

I heartily agree, an excellent product. This is where I buy mine and the best price that I've found:
Ova Easy

I thought they were good in themselves. But on our fall trip Denton Doc got me to try Nido Milk in them and it pretty much takes away any thought they aren't real eggs out there.

My two sons and myself had Ova Easy eggs for 4 breakfasts this summer in Quetico.
The results were great. Mix with bacon bits or summers sausage or omelet with onion, peppers and cheese. No need to take real eggs.

Hands down the best. You get what you pay for there.

Been using them for 4-5 years now. They are very easy to use, and good tasting. Used them for french toast (before the new Ova-easy french toast recipe) and they worked great for that as well. Found the best price at Amazon or Ebay, when buying 4-6 packs at a time. Note that at best, one pack is equal to a dozen MEDIUM eggs.
They are a little spendy, but it's much better than oatmeal every day.

Finally broke down and tried these. I was very impressed. I dont think I'll ever use regular dried eggs again.

Going to give these a try this year. I have been using eggs form the Egg Store the last 5 or 6 years and they closed up shop last year.
 
02/21/2015 11:30AM
Yes, and they are great. I even use them to make pancakes from scratch.

these work great but they make a lot at once so make sure you look at serving sizes

A package is just right for 4 guys with some added spam -- Yum

I portioned my last pack into 1-2 egg ziplocks had a couple left over, put them in the fridge when I got back. Used them a few months later and they were fine

Okay, okay...I am one of those people that really do not like powdered eggs. Been avoiding taking any kind of prepared omelette/egg product because of the texture & taste. After reading the rave reviews, I went ahead & I bought a few packages of the OvaEasy eggs. This past weekend I finally got the chance to make them. Wow, I am pleasantly surprised. It's eggs folks! It cooks like eggs, firms up like eggs, tastes like eggs (because it's eggs). I never told my husband his breakfast came from a pouch, he scarfed it down.

Here are some pictures for those of you that need convincing. Yay! Eggs are back!

I ordered some of these to try out for our upcoming trip. They're pretty darn good and very cheap compared to other powdered egg mix.

The eggs and the french toast mix are incredible.
Not like the dehydrated egg products I've had before.

I am normally a boil water kind of cook these days in the wilderness but picked up two packs of these at REI this week on a whim.

Then I found a really light fry pan at Goodwill along with a set of really small cooking utensils from IKEA and a Primus stove. I think it is a sign from the gods that I am meant to cook these eggs up on my next BWCA trip!

I noticed that the manufacturer has the smaller 2.0oz packets on their website, with free shipping. Not sure if that is still valid or not.

I also saw that they might have had a recall of some sort last year on a few select product datecodes. I am thinking of trying these, but I'll probably give them a little extra cooking just in case, since they are a real egg product.

Link to that offer? I couldn't find it.

I've never really been the best scrambled egg cookerer. :) I make a couple over medium eggs about every day. I've been happy with the ovaeasy eggs, but I "thought" they lacked the ability to really get fluffed. Our fire department cooks the Easter breakfast for the church. One of our guys makes an awesome scrambled egg. I watched him all morning. Very simple really... I tried his technique this morning with my ovaeasy eggs and wa la, best scrambled eggs I've ever made... Thanks Frank!

Guess you'll have to come to one of our breakfasts... Haha. From the time he tosses them on he just keeps sort of scaping into a pile and kind of chopping them. Nothing fancy... I add any spices right in the mix. I do mix with some pwd milk when I m mixing.
