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

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.

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.
