- Scrambled Eggs with ham (serves one) - The serving size was quite sufficient for one. The ham bits were chewier than normal ham, and the eggs (with red and green pepper bits embedded) were a bit mushy. But the taste was quite good, and although there was some lingering aftertaste it wasn't unpleasant.
- Beef stroganoff with noodles (serves two) - The serving size was a bit small for two, particularly two engaging in physical activity like hiking long distances or strenuous work.Read more ›
Quality was comparable to typical frozen dinners (except that you don't need a freezer nor a microwave, and you can store these for years without worry of freezer burn). Similarly, the size of a "serving" is comparable to typical frozen dinners. If you are satisfied by a meal consisting of about 10 oz. of food, then the packets which say they serve 2 will really serve 2 because they make about 21 oz. The pouches are comfortable to hold by the sides, and they are just wide enough that you can eat from them, but of course 2 people can't be eating out of them at the same time. It's definitely better to pour the food out. Possibly the reason that Mountain House encourages eating from the pouch is that when you pour the prepared mixture out, it tends not to look terribly appealing. Then again, if you hoping for attractive presentation, you should be looking for a restaurant.
Nutritional information was very clear and also fairly reasonable. This is definitely not low-cal nor low-fat, but still much healthier than fast-food burgers. As with most prepared foods that have any flavor, sodium tends to be a tad high but not as high as I had feared.
Some tips: The "sauciness" of these entrees is fairly heavy, so I stretched the chicken teriyaki by adding some more instant rice which I prepared separately.Read more ›
All of the food was good, the best were the beef stew, beef stroganoff, and lasanga. Heck we were even impressed by the raspberry crumble dessert. The chicken was a bit too salty for my taste but it wasn't bad.
My only complaint is that the breakfast should have been a two-person serving, the eggs were pretty darn good...just make sure you let them cook long enough; I think we were too hasty because they still tasted a bit like cardboard still.
Overall I couldn't be happier with my decision, it really was the perfect amount of food for us and it tasted great.

Nice sampling. Do yourself a favor and just buy the Beef Stroganoff and Lasagna. The others aren't as tasty.Published 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
