10 easy meals to prepare while camping on your RV

Posted on

Cooking while out camping can appear like an overwhelming assignment. Problems like limited counter space, time management and food storage can make having home-cooked meals appear to be impossible. Indeed, even with access to power, you may be tempted to just abandon the idea and head to a restaurant to fill up.

The following are some simple formulas to cook in your RV or campground. Give them a shot when you’re longing for a home-cooked feast, either for breakfast, lunch, or supper.

#1. Stovetop Stuffing Scramble

Appreciate the smell of Thanksgiving lasting through the year with this simple-to-make scramble. With nonperishable mix, you can have it prepared and ready to eat it as an exquisite dinner, lunch or breakfast in less than 20 minutes. Cook in a cast-iron skillet over the fire or an outdoors stove, or take advantage of the on sauté feature of an Instant Pot.

#2. Basic Omelet

Omelets are another simple dish that can be served as either breakfast, lunch or dinner. Requiring just a couple of essential ingredients, you can easily whip it up in a cast press skillet. Add whatever’s accessible to you ranging from cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, pine nuts or basil.

#3. Panini

Spice up your less interesting sandwiches by tossing them on the grill. Fill your Panini with condiments of your choice, cheese and meat, and then brush the outside with olive oil or margarine. Enclose the sandwiches in aluminum foil and place on an outdoor grill with a cast iron skillet or brick on top.

#4. Macaroni with Bell Peppers and Sausage

For basic readiness and simple cleanup, cook vegetables, meat and pasta in the same cast press skillet, either over an outdoors stove or the open fire. Try this formula for a healthy spin on cheese and macaroni.

#5. Grilled Fruit Kabobs

Longing for something sweet? Grilled seasonal fruit over the grill or fire for a healthy and simple dessert. Serve with vanilla ice cream for an extraordinary event.

#6. Five-Minute Oatmeal

Throw together breakfast for the entire family in just a few minutes utilizing a pressure cooker or an instant pot. If you don’t have a pressure cooker or an instant pot, you can prepare oatmeal over an outdoor stove in less than 20 minutes.

#7. Lasagna Casserole

In a cooler environment, nothing beats the taste of a home-baked, comfort food casserole. Not all RVs are outfitted with ovens, so the instant pot or pressure cooker alternative is a scrumptious approach.

#8. Foil Pack Fajitas

Put together this simple dinner option if you happen to be in a hurry. Enclosed in foil, these fajitas can be cooked on the ashes of the campfire, on a grill or in an oven. The beauty of it all is that there are no dishes to wash afterward.

#9. Avocado and Bacon Chicken Salad

For an invigorating lunch, stir up a fast chicken salad utilizing avocado rather than mayonnaise. Since it lacks condiments, this dinner saves room in your fridge and is somewhat more beneficial. Serve on fresh avocado, lettuce or hamburger buns.

#10. Lemon Pepper Salmon with Zucchini

If you’re camping near salmon fishing grounds, benefit as much as possible from your catch with a couple of basic ingredients. Cook in a cast press skillet wrapped with foil, either over the stove or in an oven.

Cooking while camping can be a hell of a task but with a copious reserve of ingredients and recipes, you can make the most of your most loved home-cooked meals while on the road.
