If you remember, our eggs did not survive our refrigerator breaking down… and while I was hungry for sausage and eggs, I pondered if our container of freeze-dried eggs would be a hit, or would they fail miserably!
Once I knew I wanted to experiment with the scrambled egg mix, I needed to figure out how I wanted to prepare them…
I located our sausage crumbles and some red bell peppers and got to working…. since I’d never worked with the eggs before in this fashion, I wondered how I would make them.
Freeze-dried foods usually need to be reconstituted with water, however, they can simply be tossed into your favorite recipe!
I prefer to cook outside, having more room to move around, than I do in our small 22 foot travel trailer, but alas, it was too cold and windy to use our propane camp stove, so I opted to use the microwave.
I’ve used our microwave to make scrambled eggs before, but my regular eggs always wound up on the rubbery side. Not very pleasing to the palate, but I was willing to give it a try!
In a small mixing bowl, I added 1 cup of our sausage crumbles, 1 cup of our red bell peppers, and 6 Tbsp. of the scrambled egg mix. I then added 1 and 2/3 cups of water, plus an additional 8 Tbsp. of water to cover the dried ingredients. Then, I let them sit, covered for 10 minutes so they could do their thing!
After giving the contents of the bowl a good stir, I added in a half stick of butter and microwaved it for 5 minutes.
Removing the bowl from the microwave, I found it to look like a big unappetizing lump… however, after giving it a stir, I was pleasantly surprised! The scrambled egg mix took on the look of regular scrambled eggs!
True, it doesn’t look quite as good as my normal eggs and sausage scramble would look, but it did have a good flavor, and in a pinch I would eat it again!
Until next time,
Peace, love and safe travels!
