This kit contains the freeze dried food house's most popular products: One breakfast (scrambled eggs with ham), four entrees (beef stroganoff, lasagna, chicken teriyaki, and beef stew), and one dessert (raspberry crumble). Each comes in their own individual, self sealing plastic/foil pouch, the scrambled eggs pouch measuring 7" x 8", the others 8" x 9.5". All the pouches are 5 ounces or less (except for the crumble, which is 5.15) and each is very sturdy and wide enough at the bottom that they can stand upright on flat surfaces on their own. They are also quite colorful, with attractive artwork, and the contents, ingredients (with a separate line relisting items that might be of dietary concern to some, like soy or wheat), nutritional information, and instructions clearly printed on the outside. The preparation proceedure for each pouch (except the crumble) is the same: Tear off the top of the pouch at the pre-cut notch, discard the oxygen absorbing packet within, pour the appropriate amount of boiling water inside, stir, seal the pouch, then wait the indicated number of minutes before eating. The instructions say you can eat the contents out of the pouch, thereby avoiding the need to wash dishes; but I found it more convenient to dump the reconstituted meal out on a plate...

- 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.

So far, I have tried the beef stew, beef stroganoff, chicken teriyaki, lasagna w/ meat sauce, and eggs w/ ham. Preparation was extremely easy and just like they say: tear open the pouch, throw away the oxygen absorber packet, pour the specified amount of boiling water into the pouch, stir, close the pouch, let it sit for several minutes, stir again, and eat. (In the case of the eggs, there will be a little excess water to pour off.)

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.

I had purchased this kit for my first weekend backpacking trip. It seemed to be just enough food for two people to share for one weekend.

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.

We purchased the best seller's kit to take on our trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, obviously we were looking for lightweight and simple to cook food and this fit the bill! We didn't know what we were in for but were willing to make do with whatever because we needed to eat. Boy, were we in for a surprise! We started with the Chicken Teriyaki for lunch and we were both pleasantly surprised. It tasted very good! Next we had the Beef Stew which was EVEN better! The lasagna was next which was our least favorite but still quite edible. The eggs with ham for breakfast were pretty decent, a little runny but I didn't read the part to dump out the extra water. We finished with the Beef Stroganoff which, once again, was very good! All and all I'd highly recommend these meals for any camping trip or for something simple to keep around the house. I looked at the ingredients on the back and they are all natural with very limited calories. There is a lot of sodium but that's about it. As with other reviews, I agree to keep it sealed for at least 10 minutes before opening, maybe even longer. It gives the water more chance to be absorbed. Also, you could probably get away with a little bit less water. Try them out, you won't be sorry.
