Powdered eggs can come in handy in a variety of situations. Not only are they are great for camping and boating, but they are also a smart item to keep in the cabinet if you do a lot of baking, since they can be easily substituted in for the real thing in most recipes and no one will be any the wiser.
While many of these powdered options can taste very close to fresh eggs when scrambled, such as Hoosier Hill Farm Whole, Arrowhead Bay Whole Crystals, and Augason Farms, there is one particular product that is raved about on many camping and cruising forums for its authentic flavor and texture — Nutriom OvaEasy. Add to that the fact that it comes in handy 4.5-ounce packages, and it is a no-brainer that it claimed our top spot.
While on the topic of sailing, we'd like to take a minute to put the spotlight on Hoosier Hill Farm Whole and Arrowhead Bay Whole Crystals, which come in large plastic jars that are easy to reseal, so you won't have to worry about moisture getting into your eggs and causing them to go bad.
Though Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon is actually a freeze-dried product rather than a powdered one, it carries nearly all of the same benefits of the powdered varieties, but with the added bonus of being fully cooked, so all you have to do is add boiling water to it and it's ready to eat. Plus, we thought many users would find the addition of bacon makes it an appealing option.
For those with sensitivities, we have included Judee's Gluten-Free. Not only is it safe for people with celiac disease, but it is also packaged in a nut-free facility.
