  • Powdered Eggs

    Does anyone stock up on them?
    Are they any good?
    I like real eggs myself but maybe someone knows about powdered?

    I have two cases of them. They are in cans, #10 size cans. They are best of used in baking or cooking things like "Meatloaf". They are eatable as scrambled, but just taste wonky. I guess you could mix them 50-50 with real eggs for scrambling.........might taste goooooder.
    One day you eat the chicken.....next day the left-over chicken.....next five days you eat chicken feathers, head and feet.

      I have powdered eggs but reserve it only for adding to other recipes, never by itself.

        They're fine.. Not exactly a fresh egg from a chicken, but good enough. The secret to using them as normal eggs is to make sure you mix in the right amount of water and that the egg powder is totally dissolved into it.

        Powdered eggs are a bit hydrophobic.. sort of like trying to mix hot coco powder into cold water.. You really need to put some elbow grease into getting them totally mixed.

            I detest them and would only eat them in cases of near starvation. GA has a good idea of adding them to other recipes though. That might workout ok.

              I only use powdered eggs in baking, But there is another type called crystallized eggs. These taste a lot like fresh eggs. They are great scrambled. I have both as I save the crystallized eggs for breafast and only use the powdered eggs for baking. If you go to some of the long term sites they should have the ones called crystallized eggs. I think also they have whole crystallized eggs as well.

                I like powdered eggs. I first had them the summer I graduated high school (1961) and went straight into my first collage courses. They had a slightly sweet taste and were quite fluffy because the dorm cooks used an industrial mixer to re-hydrate them. My only complaint was that they would drop an egg shell or two into them just before frying them up. This was to convince us students that they were fresh. We all knew they were not. By the time I transferred the student council had convinced them to stop this subterfuge because they also offered fried fresh eggs on Friday mornings and weekends and you could get your egg fix then. The shells were disliked much more than the powdered eggs.
                I do keep them and use them (when time to rotate them out) in anything that calls for a whole egg to be mixed in, Cookies, cakes, meat balls, meat loaf, french toast, anything. And on occasion I will use my old hand cranked hand mixer to make myself a scrambled sandwich when I feel nostalgic.

                  I mainly bought powdered eggs as an ingredient in some of my homemade dehydrated "MRE" heat-n-eat complete meals.

                  (I will be happy to dig up a recipe for this thread in the next few days.)

                      Sorry.........I don't know. And they are NOT anyplace handy to check. They are cached in one of my many caches. Working off the unreliable memory of an old man I think the brand name was "Harvest" (something).

                          Thanks. I did look up the Augason Farms which had a 10 year shelf life. I would imagine other brands would be similar.
