Campground Cooking: RV-Friendly Recipes
Cooking in an RV kitchen is not like being at home. Space is tight, there’s less room in the fridge, you can’t fit as many pots on the stove and trying to fit something like a turkey into an RV oven would be a stretch.
With all that in mind, here are a few delicious, easy recipes that will help you feed your family at the campground without driving yourself nuts.
Slow Cookers are the best because you can throw everything in during the morning, spend your day enjoying the campground and then serve up a delicious meal at dinner time. Plus, pulled pork is a summer picnic classic. Grab a bag of chips and some coleslaw from the store and you’ve got a meal.
If you’re looking for something a little lighter, try this veggie and protein packed pasta salad. Whip up a batch before you even leave home and just stash it in the fridge for a meal at the campground.
This recipe couldn’t be easier. Throw some veggies and salmon fillets on a sheet pan, pop them in the oven and boom, you’ve got a meal. This is the perfect thing to whip up when you come back from a busy day of fun at the campground and everyone is starving. It doesn’t take much work and it’s done in a flash.
Tacos are a great campground dinner because really you only have to cook the filling and the rest is just prepping toppings. You can opt to pick up a packet of taco seasoning and some ground beef or use the recipe above for a totally homemade version. Or try these easy slow cooker chicken tacos.
Don’t Forget the Classics
We all want to eat healthy, nutritious meals, but sometimes you have to let go a little and embrace old favorites. You’re on vacation, so let the kids eat hot dogs roasted over a campfire, peanut butter and jelly, burgers on the grill, chips and s’mores. It’s all part of making family camping memories. Throw in a veggie tray, so you don’t feel guilty.
