I went ahead and opened up a can of our Augason Farms dehydrated scrambled eggs as (unbelievably) we had ran out of eggs! Our hens are obviously taking a vacation, and lately this past month, I've been dragging my feet in going to the grocery store. But this is what "emergency food reserves" are for. Right?
SIMPLE ingredients - milk and eggs. Just keep in mind, it's equal amounts of water. If you use 1 cup of dry egg powder, it's 1 cup of water added.
A good can opener is needed to open this #10 can. And what the eggs look like when settled in the can.
A soft fine powder and a pleasant smell.
Just add water.
With equal amounts of water, the batter has the consistency of pancake mix. I was thinking that in order to stretch the eggs, I may add some milk and other ingredients like potatoes, onions, salsa - especially if feeding a large group of people.
This is over 6 tablespoons of eggs. Not a whole lot, and won't feed an army.
Great texture. I added this to some bacon grease.
I fed this to my hungry husband.
We rated these eggs a (7) out of a possible 10.All through the web, we've read reviews of people raving about these eggs. I agree that it is AMAZING to have these eggs and the ability to store them for long term. My can is dated as - BEST IF USED BY JUNE 2024. This is a 10 year shelf life.
My husband's exact words: "It tastes like powdered eggs, but during a SHTF situation, they are pretty good and a MUST HAVE!"
I agree. For food storage, the eggs are important. We plan to order more of these eggs to store away. Currently, these are SOLD OUT on the Walmart website, but I checked and there's a combo (2 can) sale for over $57 at SAMS Wholesale online - FREE SHIPPING.
I did check the Augason website and they are asking $30 for a can, and that's not including shipping.
It appears the best deal is to buy this from Sams online (if you have a membership.)
**While checking online at Amazons, pay close attention to the weight. I had almost jumped on a "deal" to buy these eggs and realized it was for 9 ounces! The full sized can is 2 pounds and 4 ounces.
