Review of the Mountain House breakfast skillet freeze dried pouch. While working around the farm, and new fence line cleared out, I decided to have a Mountain House breakfast skillet for lunch.
For whatever reason, Mountain House freeze dried pouches have always come across as bland, very bland. There seems to be very little flavor was added at the factory. Maybe this was so people can add the spices they want?
I wish Mountain House would treat the sodium content like they do the flavoring, and leave some out. Why leave something as simple as black pepper out, but have an excessive amount of sodium?
Let’s move onto the review.
This was from the back of the package and not from the Mountain House website.

Breakfast Skillet Review
Overall, I found the Mountain House breakfast skillet freeze dried pouch to be very bland. The meal needs some black pepper and something like hot sauce, or even picante sauce.
As for stockpiling the breakfast skillet freeze dried meals – I would buy a few of them, but not the #10 cans. Having a couple around to break food fatigue, and to hand out to friends and family members may not be a bad idea. Just be aware these meals are very bland and will probably need something to spice things up. Maybe have some Louisiana hot sauce or Tabasco sauce on hand?
Out of all the Mountain House breakfast meals, the breakfast skillet is probably the worst. The biscuits and gravy was much better, and so was the scrambled eggs and bacon.
If I see some of these on sale somewhere I may pick a couple of. However, otherwise they are a pass for my stockpile.
