Just Crack An Egg

From Ore-Ida
Reviewed by Mr Breakfast on 3/23/2018

I tried 2 varieties of Just Crack An Egg scramble kits: the Denver Scramble and the All American scramble. Of the two, I very much preferred the Denver Scramble.

Both scramble kits are easy to prepare. You open the cup and remove small plastic pouches containing ingredients. You crack an egg into the cup and then empty the pouches into the cup. Then you simply stir and microwave. Total cooking time is just over a minute.

The size of each serving was larger than I expected. Still, people with big appetites might want to have 2 Just Crack An Egg cups.

The Denver Scramble was really good. You can taste cheese in every bite. The ratio of ingredients seemed just right. The potatoes were a little more raw tasting than I'd prefer, but that wasn't a deal breaker. The ham tasted like good ham. The green pepper and onion did their job to add a little fresh pizzazz to each bite.

The All American Scramble wasn't nearly as good. It was pleasantly cheesy. But it suffers from the same raw tasting potato problem. The bacon tasted okay but was occasionally chewy and tough. The overall flavor was a little lame. I really missed the veggies from the previous scramble. The All American Scramble could really benefit from some additional flavor to help the other ingredients pop.

Overall, I left the breakfast table feeling mostly satisfied. For ease of preparation, Just Crack An Egg cups are terrific. For taste, I recommend that you give the Denver Scramble kit a try, but maybe skip the All American.

The price we paid: $2.49

Both are very good and fantastic for throwing in my breakfast/lunch bag for the office. One of these plus a fruit cup and I'm good for a few hours until lunch. The Denver is probably a bit better than the American, but I still buy and enjoy both. Agreed there is a bit of an aftertaste, I believe it is a result of the packaging of the proteins. Not a big deal, sort of like the taste of smoked meats.

Container is too small for more than one egg. I had to clean my kitchen floor because of this product. When you try to stir it spills.

I paid 3.69 for my Denver cup. The onions and pepper pack looked soggy which should have been first hint. The scramble was very watered down tasting and very bland. Nothing cheesy about it as others commented.

I found this easy and quick to prepare when you compare it to dicing the ham, onions and potatoes separately. If you want 2 eggs just cook it all in a microwave safe bowl. I always do scrambled eggs in the microwave anyway. They come out fluffier.

I found the taste very good. It is the price that will keep me from buying it on a regular basis. It was $1.50 on sale at Brookshires. Considering the amount of ingredients in the cup, I find it a bit pricey at regular price of $3. It was very simple to prepare. Great for college students or for people without cooking utensils.

When I saw Just Crack an Egg I decided to give it a go. Preparation was very easy and foolproof, however it lacked flavor. I had to add hot sauce in order for it to taste okay. I will not be buying this again.

Icky texture in the raw-ish potatoes. Not convenient to take to work, since you'd have to tote a raw egg. Doesn't stack up to the Jimmy Dean competition. Nice to try out, but not likely to try again.

$2.49 is a bit pricey. Two bucks at Walmart if near by. Hard to order online as it is a refrigerated item. I substitute two portions of egg white liquid, following the instruction for cooking with two eggs. I also add one third cup of either diced onions or Pico de gallo. Makes a nice, easy clean up breakfast.

More plastic than food. You really don't have 10 minutes to make breakfast? Who microwaves eggs?

The price is better than having to purchase all of the ingredients, you just can't get quantities that small. I might microwave the potatoes a little, then add the egg and other ingredients. I added a little sour cream yesterday after cooking!

Love these products. So easy to make! Taste good. Plus sometimes I add extra ingredients, such as spinach or salsa. I also first add a little milk to the egg & whip before stirring in the other ingredients. This makes the egg more fluffy. I also add a tad of butter after the first 40 seconds of cooking & stir before cooking the next 40 seconds. The milk & butter make the scrambles taste more homemade. Great product. Thumbs up.

For $2.49 seems way too much for $.50 worth of product. Flavor was not there. Better to make it yourself.

I just tried the DENVER. Potatoes definitely taste raw. Overall, I felt it had a processed taste. Would probably not try again.

Fabulous product. So popular in Greater Winston-Salem that it can be hard to find. There is nothing I do not like about it. I add foods to give variety - e.g., mushrooms.

I love this product! Very convenient for people on the go. Portions are packed separately in case you don't to include one or the other and great tasting! What I would like to see is a double portion for (add 2 eggs). But overall a great product. Very pleased! :)

Why in the world would they not offer at least one flavor that vegetarians could eat?

Really enjoy the Denver and Rustic. I tried adding two eggs and worked great. Just had to microwave for 1 minute, stir, then one more minute to cook the 3xtr@ egg. My problem now is that I canít find them anywhere now.

I'm 69 so my meals tend to be smaller. For me, the product is perfect. One egg, sort of a scrambled omelet and two pieces of toast. 40 sec, stir, 30 sec, stir is not too much work for a quick fairly healthy breakfast. My problem out here is, they sell out in one day at all the grocery stores. Publix warehouse is out, Winn Dixie sells out in hours.

The egg seems runny when you follow the directions. Way too much money for serving size.

Even with one egg, the finished product does not even fill half the cup. Paying about 2.50 for two tablespoons of the meat, two tablespoons of potatoes, two tablespoons of cheese, and supplying my own egg is an absolute ripoff. It does not fill me at all and wouldn't even as a snack. I do think it tastes alright, but due to the nature of the $$ ripoff, deeply disappointed with this product!

Neither easy, nor economical. Paid about $2.50 each and it took 2 to satisfy my hunger. I could have made this myself with separate ingredients for far less $$. Bad idea that won't last a year.

I tried the rustic and Denver scrambles. Both were tasty and easy to prepare. The vegetables were a bit tasteless, so the 2nd time, I seasoned the veggie packet with salt and pepper before cooking... big improvement. I would recommend leaving out the potatoes... texture and flavor doesn't add to the meal.

Pretty good but 40 and 30 seconds isn't long enough. Had to keep going longer. Great for lazy people.

Awful. Followed instructions, potatoes are raw tasting, bacon is tough and egg is rubbery. Pass.

Product Rating (out of 5):

The product name and commercials are misleading. Preparation involves more than just cracking an egg. Even your review leaves out the steps of microwaving 40 seconds stirring, microwaving again for 30 more seconds, then stirring again. But the cost and bit of work might be worth it if the product tasted good. It does not! I had the Rustic Scramble and it tasted awful! Really want an omelet in the morning but don't have time to prepare it? Dice the 3 or 4 ingredients the night before (or dice enough on Sunday to last the week.) Then mix and microwave in your own cup in the morning - you choose the serving size.

It tastes as if most of the ingredients were not cooked properly. Definitely did not enjoy the bacon, and the potatoes were awful. Nice try but no thanks.

You only get a half cup for the price and for that I can cook a full course breakfast.
