Fall Recipes Perfect for RV Living

With the changing of the season and the autumn leaves bursting with color, cooler temps invoke a longing to snuggle up in your RV or around the campfire with some warm comfort food.

Camping and meal preparation should always equal EASY so we’ve prepared some tasty and convenient Fall recipes. These can be made either in your little RV kitchen, or outside on a portable stove or over a campfire. Bon Appetit!

Easy Peasy Breakfast Bake

  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Whole or 2% Milk
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 lb. Hash Brown Potatoes – thawed
  • 1 Cup Ham – Finely Diced (or breakfast meat of choice)
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Fresh Chives – Fine chop
  • Non-stick Butter Flavored Cooking Spray
  • Aluminum Foil Grill Bags

In a large, resealable plastic bag, crack the eggs and drop them in. Add milk, then season with salt and pepper. Seal the bag and squish together until mixed. Then carefully open the bag and dump in the hash browns, ham (or other protein), and cheese. Seal the bag again and squish together until mixed. Take the aluminum foil grill bags and spray with cooking spray. Divide the mixture among the bags, fold tightly, and seal them up.

Place the foil pouches of egg goodness over the campfire, or put them on the grill. Cook until eggs are thoroughly cooked and hash browns are tender and crispy, about 10 minutes. Then garnish with chives, salsa, or your choice of topping.

Tasty Walking Tacos

The kiddos will go nuts over these neat little bundles of portable goodness. They’re fun and easy to build, and you will love them since there are no dishes to wash, except your skillet! Use paper boats and disposable utensils for this one.

  • Lunch-Size Bags of Fritos or Doritos
  • 1 lb. Cooked Taco Meat or Chili
  • 8 oz. Bag of Shredded Cheddar
  • Iceberg Lettuce – Finely shredded
  • Can Diced Tomatoes or Rotel – Drained
  • Whole Milk or Light Sour Cream

Brown the meat in a cast iron skillet over the fire (or on a stovetop) and mix in taco seasoning. Set out on a trivet on the picnic table with all of the other ingredients. Before opening each bag o’ chips, gently squish the bag to crush into smaller pieces. Open bags and let your camper’s spoon in their desired ingredients and VOILA! Dinner is served.

Campfire Hobo Stew

  • 2 pounds beef chuck, trimmed, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup onions, diced
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 16 cloves garlic, whole but peeled
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup baby potatoes, cubed (these will probably need to be quartered in order to have the potatoes sufficiently cooked at the same time as the rest of the food in the foil packets.)
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary 1 bunch of fresh parsley, chopped for garnish (optional)

Marinate the beef chuck in Worcestershire sauce for a few hours before cooking. Meanwhile, cut 4 pieces of heavy-duty foil (or regular foil folded over) about 24 inches long. Then, set out each ingredient to make an ingredient bar so your campers can build their own Hobo Stew Packet. Have them start with the meat. Season with salt and pepper to taste, before adding the other desires ingredients. Add as many ingredients as you want, just don’t overfill the packet! Fold the packet and cook for 10 minutes over medium heat (campfire coals or grill). Turn packets over and cook another 10 minutes. Total cooking time will be about 20-30 minutes, depending on temperature and amount of stew in each packet. Remove foil packets and discard rosemary sprigs before serving. Add fresh parsley for garnish, if you want.

Banana Boat S’mores

  • Firm Yellow Bananas – unpeeled
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Golden Grahams Cereal
  • Cinnamon Baking Chips – optional
  • Peanut Butter Baking Chips – optional
  • Aluminum Foil

Slit bananas lengthwise but don’t cut all the way through to the bottom. Gently pull apart to form a boat. Then stuff your boat with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and cereal. Gently push together and wrap tightly with aluminum foil, then twist the ends closed. Set your banana boat pouch on a hot campfire or grill. Cook for about 5-7 mins, turning frequently using campfire tongs or campfire cooking mitts. Remove from open flame and set aside to cool slightly. Open carefully to allow steam to escape. Allow to cool for 2 minutes before eating.
