Purchased these meals for my daughter’s family who live in the San Bernardino mountains. They arrived just in time as they were unable to get out of Lake Gregory for nearly two weeks due to the massive snow storms. To make it worse, the only grocery store in town had its food collapse and food became scarce. The kids truly enjoyed their emergency meals.
This one goes to 11! I am a new Peak Refuel consumer. I have used Mountain House since the 90’s. This breakfast skillet is not soupy or mashed casserole chow hall food. The eggs are fluffy, the peppers and onions retain their own flavors, and the sausage chunks are just like home. This really does taste like a home made skillet fry. My first time ordering will not be my last. I will be buying Peak Refuel from now on.
Is the breakfast skillet meal better than what you can make at home? No it’s not. But if you were in the field and had this for breakfast, it absolutely is a 5 out of 5. If you were able to get your hands on some tortillas and cheddar cheese, this would make a perfect breakfast burrito. Some minor negative comments : i followed the instructions perfectly and found the sausage bits to be under hydrated, you may want to allow it to sit longer than the suggested 15 minutes before eating. Secondly, and this is just a matter of taste. I felt it was under seasoned, which was fine with me, some added salt and pepper resolved this for me.
So I tried this and cooked as is and followed directions to the letter. It turned out much better than I thought. No left over water in bottom. The veggies and egg hydrated perfectly. The sausage not so much which I find typical. The sausage was mostly soft and better hydrated than other meals I tried. I like that it's not shredded potatoes either. Needed seasoning like pepper or hot sauce. Definitely two servings, maybe even three as it was very filling.
GREAT TASTE! Very healthy list of ingredients.
HALF the sodium and sugar as other manufacturers
of Freeze-Dried foods.
Peak Refuel is indeed the standard for Premium
One of my favorites you can have it for breakfast or dinner
Tastes great and was quite filling.
Tried this one at home, very good and will feed 3 easily. Had it on tortillas for breakfast.
Great for a fast breakfast!

Best breakfast skillet I've had...gives homemade a good run!
Every Peak meal has been very tasty. It’s amazing what comes out of these packages. Try them you won’t be disappointed.
The breakfast skillet is excellent! Small tortillas makes this a great meal that goes a long way to feed two hunters.
I wrote this review for the Summit 2.0 by accident. This is a ton of food. No going hungry. I ate a portion before leaving camp, and I would make the rest into a burrito for a mid-morning snack.
Lots Of food. This one can feed two people while most the order meals are take only one serving
I liked this meal the first time I tried it, but the second go around was less impressed. I would opt for another Peak meal in the future.
had the breakfast skillet on a trip into the cabinet mountains this week. ate it as a breakfast burrito in a tortilla. really, really good. going to definitely order some more of these.
Tastes great. Smells great. Looks great. Don’t use to much water when preparing and it’ll be delicious.

This was absolutely the best freeze dried breakfast I have tried, everything rehydrated perfectly with no extra water and tasted amazing(even the egg)!!
I did add just a little bit more water than the package said, but I do that with every meal.
These will definitely be one I stock up on!
This is a very filling meal. One pouch could probably feed three people from my group of hiking buddies. That being said I've only had it once so far. Maybe I didn't rehydrate it properly, but the egg didn't quite get to where it needed to be so it was simultaneously a bit soggy with some crunchy bits. It did have really good flavor though, the peppers in it were really good and I probably would try it again if I knew I needed a massive breakfast or had someone to split it in half with. I'm usually a ravenous backpacker so that's saying something.
I was hesitant to try this one but it’s my favorite PEAK meal so far. I cannot believe how much food you get! Roll this up in tortillas It tastes so fresh, and nice peppery hit. LOVE THIS ♥️♥️♥️
It needed a little salt for the flavor to come out, afterward that it was ok
I was pleasantly surprised with this. It was my first time trying anything from Peak Refuel and I've also never had good luck with freeze dried breakfast meals from other companies. I'm also not a fan of freeze dried eggs or breakfast sausage of any type. This one really surprised me.
I think what I like the most is, you really couldn't taste the sausage, which to me was a very good thing. Also the eggs weren't over-powering. Most of the taste was the potatoes and the peppers. I will say, it does need salt/pepper, but what meal that has a lot of potato doesn't.
I usually have no problem finishing off a two serving meal, but this one even tested me. I've never had a 2 serving freeze dried meal that had some much food.
Can't what to try a few more of your meals.
My son brought some of these on our elk hunt last year.
They were really good.
So much so that I'm taking them this year for myself.
There is far too much potato in this meal. The extra potato filler makes it too much for even two people to eat.
Cholesterol is kinda high? Really tasty though.
I love the flavors in this meal...the sausage is not too salty and the peppers really come through to add great veggie flavor. Sodium content is great for this size meal, which is more in line with what a single camper needs before a big day in the great outdoors than the portion sizes that other companies offer. Taste, texture, and ease of preparation make this a go-to for me. If you use the two cups boiling water or more, expect to strain excess water...I found that using less water (only when it's warm outside) makes it even better, as long as the water is "super heated". Great meal, I originally chose it for the nutritional content, will keep buying it for the taste!
My first elk hunt and I couldnt be more impressed! I had a competitors breakfast and Peak's Breakfast Skillet. The Peak was delicious and enough for two! The competitors was terrible, spongy flavorless cardboard. Needless to say I am a Peak Refuel Fan.
Great meal very easy to fix fed 3 grown ups.
Best breakfast backpacking scramble out there. Awesome!!!
Hands down the Breakfast Skillet is THE Best backpacking meal! My backpacking buddies love it when I break out this meal for breakfast because they know that I can never finish it by myself. Because I'm a nice guy, sometimes I'll stop before I'm full just so I can share more with them. Why they haven't hopped on board with buying Peak Refuel, I don't know. What I do know is that ever since I discovered this brand of backpacking meals, I always have some on hand. Whether it's for that next spur of the moment trip or for my emergency Go Bag, I keep well stocked with Peak Refuel meals.
I bought a few meal packs to test at home before stocking up for an upcoming backpacking trip. The Breakfast Skillet was the first to be put to the test and it passed with flying colors.
The tastes and textures are VERY close to what a stir fry of eggs, sausage, and peppers would taste like if you made it from scratch with fresh ingredients in your home kitchen. This Peak Fuel version couldn't be easier to prepare and the meal was tasty and satisfying. The calorie count, the sodium content, and the protein numbers were all good.
It would be a great meal to start off a challenging hiking day.
Maybe my appetite wasn't up to par, but I couldn't come close to finishing this one off. If I get it again, I will keep it in mind that I need to be extra hungry. I usually don't have any trouble polishing off the 2 person meals.
When compared with similar options, this one is the best, lots of flavor and taste compared to others and tons of taste. Definitely will buy again.
Had this when I was camping outside Joshua Tree to climb. Super easy to prepare and no hassle. Tastes great with some coffee
Checking in via satellite, warming up with the ti stove and hot Peak meal after chasing Elk. I saved this one for “ breakfast for dinner” days when I need a delicious, calorie packed meal, coming back wet and tired battling with the rainforest.
Breakfast is never my favorite to try and find a meal in the backcountry but I know I need to eat. So when I finally found a egg breakfast that has good texture and taste I was very surprised. Thanks peak fuel for making a good egg skillet.
There are a lot of companies out there making food for us backpackers and backpack hunters, but very few that make a hardy breakfast. Peakrefuel, killed it with this breakfast skillet! It is delicious an definitely filling! Thanks Peakrefuel!
Best breakfast skillet for the backcountry and even better when paired with a flour tortillas to make a breakfast burrito
Literally the best freeze dried breakfast I have had by far! Makes excellent breakfast burritos! My BF and I can usually split 1 packet between us and it is filling enough bet us both through until lunch. Love our peak refuels between grocery shopping at home even lol quick easy dinner if you don’t feel like cooking much also.
“I don’t know about this dehydrated food, it tastes like cardboard.” That’s what I thought too! This does not taste like cardboard, it’s delicious. The meals are huge and full of protein and flavor, they are definitely my go to for quick and nutritious meals!
By far the best breakfast skillet I’ve had compared to other meals. Makes me want to do a hike just to have a meal!
Yum! Peak’s breakfast skillet is one of my all time favorites and also such a great meal to eat before a hike, after a hike, or just because. Pro-tip: pack some tortillas for a delish breakfast taco!
Good stuff...lots of protein... cooks quick...delicious!
Surprisingly very good. 2 cups of hot water and 15 minutes later you are enjoying a filling and delicious meal.
Happy with all so far....
Absolutely the best breakfast I have ever eaten in the backcountry!
Always great. Used to eat Mountain House. It does not compare to Peak Refuel. Keep it up and add more variety.
Tried for the first time this morning. I will be purchasing more indeed
This is best breakfast egg, potato and sausage my wife and I have eaten on trail. Nice chunks of sausage. It was filling but not too heavy. Lots of flavor!
This is my ALL TIME favorite camping/hunting breakfast! I usually eat half of it rolled up in a tortilla with a little shredded cheese and maybe some salsa. Yum! The veggies are whole pieces and very fresh tasting. I ate this 5 mornings in a row, by choice, during my solo 2019 elk hunt. I had other breakfasts to choose from, but this always got the nod. I love it!
It's good! Add a little salt and pepper
and good to go. A filling meal for 2.
Great backcountry meal! I usually get another brand that has a similar mean but Peak refuel blows it away. I agree with other reviews that you really need to mix up the bottom of this meal as most of my seasoning got stuck at the bottom. Even without our that seasoning it was a four star but once I got that mixed in it went right to a five. Will absolutely be ordering this again for future trips!
The amount of food in this package is immense. It has so much food, it's hard to close the pouch back up to steam the food haha. Overall it has a good flavor. I added salt and pepper since I felt it was lacking but nice that you can add however much you need to make it suite your preferences. Some other brands of breakfast which shall not be named here have a ton of sodium and you can taste it. This was subtle. Very tasty and filling meal.
This is hands down my favorite Peak meal. Amazing flavor, real eggs and veggies, you just can’t beat it! Make sure you really stir from the bottom up so you get the seasoning distributed evenly. The pouch is so full of food it can be hard to stir, but it is a good problem to have because I can’t get enough. I’m glad these pouches are filled to the rim, and they really can feed two people easily. Awesome food, awesome flavor, you will be blown away at the quality of this meal.
