Breakfast food storage ideas.
Breakfast, they say, is the most important meal of the day, which
means it's even more important in an emergency situation.

The Prepper's Pantry is filled with breakfast food storage of
prepared freeze dried breakfasts; powdered eggs; canned
breakfast meats; bread, muffin and scones mixes; shelf stable
grains, cereals and more. If you're short on ideas for survival
breakfasts, read on...

Prepper's Pantry: Breakfast
Likely you have some survival breakfast food in your pantry.
Foods like boxed cereals,
Pop Tarts, Bisquick and breakfast bars.
All are good to have on hand for every day and for emergencies.

For a deeper larder, you'll want to stock up foods with a long
shelf life in buckets and cans and Mylar pouches. To that end,
we've assembled a list of the best breakfast food storage
suggestions for the prepper's pantry...

#1: Pancake Mix.
One emergency breakfast food likely already in your pantry is a
Bisquick pancake or
Kodiak Cakes FlapJack and Waffle mix to
make pancakes, flapjacks, biscuits and waffles. Did you know that
you can supersize your survival breakfast plans?  Start stockpiling
cans or buckets of
Augason Farms buttermilk pancake mix,
pictured right. This just add water emergency food storage is
something the kids will appreciate for breakfast and it will bring
you peace of mind to have it on hand.

Augason Farms also includes #10 cans in their emergency
breakfast food lineup. Try them!

Be sure to store the following with the pancake mix:

  • Maple syrup. Maple syrup has an almost indefinite shelf life,
    be sure to splurge on the good stuff.

  • Canned butter. Yes butter comes in a can. Each can
    contains 12-oz of butter (equivalent to about three 1/2-cup
    sticks of butter). No refrigeration needed.

  • Cooking oil. Pancakes and waffles require a little oil to fry
    up, so be sure not to run out.

  • Chocolate chips or freeze-dried blueberries. Enhance your
    pancakes with butterscotch chips, chocolate chips or freeze
    dried fruit.

#2: Freeze dried, dehydrated and powdered eggs.
Eggs are a breakfast staple of most prepper homes. You don't
need to reach into the chicken coup for breakfast if you have
Augason Farms Dried Whole Egg Powder on hand. Certified gluten
free, this real egg powder goes well beyond breakfast and
provides endless versatility. Use it for desserts, casseroles or
quiches and most importantly always have eggs handy for
breakfast with whole eggs powder from Augason Farms.

The Augason Farms Dried Whole Egg Product is an inexpensive
source of high quality protein with an extended shelf life of up to
10 years. Just add 1/3 cup whole dried egg powder to 1/3 cup
water, mix and you have an equivalent of 2 fresh eggs.

While you can make delightful scrambled eggs or French toast,
among other things, you'll find emergency breakfast is ever faster
with the
Augason Farms Scrambled Egg Mix, pictured right, which
includes non-fat dry milk, vegetable oil and salt. Conveniently
prepare omelets, French toast, and your other favorite breakfast
entrées when you don’t have fresh eggs on hand. Just add 1/2
cup egg powder with 1/2 cup warm water.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and eggs are an
exceptional way to get your day started. Zombie hunting will be
hard work and you'll need to get a good start for whatever will
come your way. Here are our favorite egg breakfasts for
emergency food storage:

  • Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon: Pictured
    immediate right, try a sample pack of the camping
    enthusiast's favorite brand. The #10 can of Mountain House
    Scrambled Eggs with bacon will last upwards of 25 years.  
    Stock up on #10 cans of Mountain House.

  • Mountain House Scrambled eggs six pack, pictured
    immediate right, you'll take all the prep work out of
    breakfast with this delicious freeze-dried scrambled
    eggs and bacon breakfast. This large can of your
    favorite breakfast makes a great addition to your
    emergency food storage supply. There's nothing artificial
    and it's gluten-free.

#3: Canned bacon.
The preppers of are known as the bacon-
loving preppers. (Search Google and see for yourself.) As the self-
appointed experts we can tell you that Yoders canned bacon is
the best.

  • Yoder's Canned bacon. Yoders brand of canned meats are
    packed the Amish way with a smoky flavor and a long shelf
    life. You'll get about 40 slices of fully cooked bacon, per can.
    And it's fully drained of fat. With 10 year shelf life, this isn't
    a novelty item: it's real bacon for your long term food
    storage needs. See more Yoder's meat products.

No weekend breakfast would be complete without bacon!

#4: Oatmeal.
Another emergency breakfast food to have on hand is oatmeal.
Certainly having a bucket of Oatmeal is an emergency breakfast
food supply item you can count on, you'll be using the bucket for
lunch and dinner too. From oatmeal you can grind it and make
oatmilk to drink and flour for your breads. Oatmeal is an extender
for meatloaf too.

Oatmeal is an economical staple. A
bucket of quick rolled oats by
Augason Farms, pictured right, is as little as $20 and with free
shipping on Prime.

Oats store well and are high in protein and fiber, among the
reasons why you should store oats. There are two kinds of oats
preppers should stock:

  • Quick rolled oats. Augason Farms Quick rolled oats are
    processed (steamed and flattened), but they are still a
    whole grain. The benefit of Quick Oats in your preps is that
    they will take less fuel to cook. The drawback is that this
    processing shortens the storage lifespan. Ideal by the
    bucket, Augason Farms quick oats are conveniently packed in
    bulk at the bottom of the page.

  • Steel Cut Oats. Steel cut rolled oats are a highly nutritious
    oat product because they have the entire oat kernal. Try
    John McCann's Steel Cut Oats or Bob's Red Mill. According to
    Brigham Young University, this life-sustaining nutrition can
    last upwards of 30 years if stored properly.

#5: Cereal.
Saratoga Farms manufactured cereal in buckets

  • Mountain House. Mountain House Granola with blueberries
    has the powdered milk included. Just add water! Enjoy
    crunchy granola with real blueberries packed with energizing
    dried fruit, fiber, and unsaturated fats for breakfast. Freeze-
    dried to lock in nutrients and freshness with no refrigeration

  • Shredded wheat. Shredded Wheat is whole wheat grain
    prepared in a digestible form, supplying all the strength a
    Prepper needs. The first edition of the Boy Scout Manual in
    1911 highlights the best food for Boy Scouts is Shredded
    Wheat, "because it has all the muscle-building material in
    the whole wheat grain prepared in a digestible form,
    supplying all the strength. Right is the 1926 shredded wheat

  • Saratoga Farms Cereal Buckets. Cereal is good to have in
    food storage. The Honey Nut cereal bucket will last 20-years
    unopened. The bucket of honey nut cereal is filled to the
    brim to give you the best value. You get 5.78 lbs (2.62 kg)
    of cereal. Try other Saratoga Farms cereals.

#6: Breads, scones and muffins.
You don't have to be a baker to make delicious breads, scones
and muffins for breakfasrt.  
Augason Farms has a variety of mixes
for baked goods sealed in #10 cans for long term shelf life. Stash
them for dinner sides, breakfast or snacks.

  • Honey Cornbread muffin mix. Cornbread stuffing or
    muffins, with Augason Farms Honey Cornbread Muffin Mix,
    downhome cooking has never been easier. Just add water to
    this mix and bake according to the directions to get delicious
    cornbread muffins full of honey flavor. They are perfect to
    serve with soup, chili, beans and other hearty entrees, but
    can also be used as a base for cornbread stuffing. Keep this
    mix on hand to enjoy as a quick, delicious side for everyday
    meals, or for use down the road as part of your emergency
    food storage supply. Shelf life up to 10 years based on
    storage conditions.

  • Blueberry flavored Muffin Mix. Augason Farm’s easy-to-
    make, Blueberry-flavored Muffin Mix are the ideal go-to when
    you have run out of breakfast ideas in the morning or are
    trying to make a quick snack in the afternoon. And while they
    are delicious by themselves, you can also try the recipes on
    the can to create mouthwatering desserts; it makes having
    the Blueberry Muffin Mix on hand ideal for any meal. As a
    convenient addition to your pantry, these muffins are great
    for everyday use as well as long-term food storage. Shelf life
    up to 10 years based on storage conditions.

  • Bread, Scone & Roll Mix. With a 10-year shelf life, you can
    pop open a can of Augason Farn bread, scone & roll mix for
    delicious, nourishing Honey White Bread, Scone & Roll Mix
    can be used in a variety of ways, and is simple to make—
    just add water, oil, and yeast. There’s nothing like the
    comforting aroma of baked bread and rolls, especially on a
    cold winter day. Include warm, fresh-from-the-oven baked
    bread with your next hot bowl of soup or plate of cheesy
    vegetable casserole. This is a baking mix you’ll want for
    everyday baking and for your long term food storage.

#7: Breakfast buckets.
Your emergency breakfast supply should include breakfast buckets.
With extended shelf life, emergency food buckets withstand the
test of time, reducing waste and worry when maintaining disaster
preparedness kits

  • Augason Farms breakfast and lunch bucket. With a 20-
    year shelf life, the Auguason Farms Breakfast bucket holds
    four-gallons of freeze dried food and includes:
  • 4 pouches Buttermilk pancakes
  • 3 pouches Maple brown sugar oatmeal
  • 3 pouches milk alternative
  • 2 pouches six-grain banana cereal

  • Mountain House Breakfast bucket. The Mountain House
    Just in Case Breakfast Bucket is a hearty start of the day
    whether you're in survival mode or camping. With 16 total
    pouches of Mountain House freeze dried breakfast meals, our
    Just in Case Breakfast Assortment Bucket offers enough food
    to satisfy your morning hunger. The bucket contains:
  • 4 pouches Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Ham

  • Relief Foods Breakfast bucket (4 weeks). This bucket has
    84 servings packed into a 3-gallon bucket. It's stocked up on
    the most important meal of the day for up to 4 weeks. This

Other Breakfast Essentials

  • Milk. Got powdered milk? Stocking instant dry milk in your
    preps is important. Milk will provide essential nutrition for
    your family. A cup of milk (fat free or skim, calcium fortified)
    has just 86 calories, but it has about 40% (8.4 grams) of
    protein, 50% of your calcium, and c, not to mention the
    Vitamin D. You'll use it for your granola and cereals, baking,
    and for blending powdered cheeses for your macaroni and
    potato casserole dishes, among many other uses.

add water" survival food, but it's good to have
food bars, bread
bacon, oats, cereals and freeze dried and canned fruits
along with the freeze dried breakfasts that are easy to prepare.
Don't forget the
coffee and milk! Start stockpiling emergency
breakfast foods so you won't go hungry in crisis.
