MRE Monday - Filled French Toast

I thought I'd try to spread out on the MREs and review a breakfast food. Today's treat is the Filled French Toast that I picked up on sale for $1.50 last year.

I pictured a big slice of Texas Toast split in half and stuffed with something.
I cut it in half to show the filling.

We had a conversation at the dinner table about pseudonyms with the kids. I asked them what they wanted to be called on Daddies computer, they haven't quite gotten the idea about blogging yet. I had a hard enough time telling them about typewriters when they were eating corn. Anyways, the oldest son wanted to be called "Row". The youngest, who is 3, wanted to be called Red Ant with Spikes. We'll just shorten it to Ant, because he is always busy!

I did two Filled French Toast and had them waiting on the table. Row asked, "What is this?" Took a small  bite and announced that he didn't like it. Ant also took a small bite and followed Row's lead and said he didn't like it either. I did ask him if he would eat it if their was no food and he was hungry. He said," No, we can go food shopping."

Sweetheart said that she would definitely eat it again and would order some more.

I would order it again too. The bread texture was a little doughy, very similar to the wheat snack bread. The filling could be described as a lighter fruit leather consistency for the maple syrup filling. A thick molasses style consistency would be an excellent way to describe it. Both Sweetheart and myself would throw it into our backpacks for a weekend trip. It would break the monotony of instant oatmeal on a long trek. I would rate it a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10.


  1. Interesting I have never seen that particular MRE before.

    1. It is available through Emergency Essentials.

  2. That's what I was going to say. Interesting. Don't think I've seen many breakfast MREs.
    Thanks for the review.

  3. Thanks, I'm glad I can pass along some insight.
