Cooking while RVing

Let’s face it, not all of us have the patience to make enough home cooked meals to last an entire camping trip. While the road offers plenty of fast food or convenience store stops, nothing beats the taste of a freshly cooked meal. So we’re going to be sharing some of the easiest, tastiest, and most fun ways to cook while RVing and camping.

  • Hobo Pies

Hobo Pies are anything and everything, tossed in folded tinfoil bags, and cooked over a campfire until cooked.

  • Sausage, Ground Beef, or Chicken (or all three, it’s your pie!)
  • Veggies (Squash, Zucchini, Broccoli, Asparagus, etc.)
  • Peppers (Green, Red, Yellow, and Jalapenos)
  • Onion (White or Yellow)
  • Potatoes
  • Seasonings (Garlic Powder, Crushed Red Peppers, Seasoned Salt, etc.)
  • Sauces (BBQ, Worcestershire, Ranch)
  • Trash Breakfast
    A Trash Breakfast is the Hobo Pie of breakfast. Cooked in the same method, tinfoil bags, A Trash Breakfast is cooked on a grill or fire and turned every 5 minutes until done.

    • Shredded Hash Browns
    • Eggs (Beaten)
    • Ham or Sausage (Pre-cooked)
    • Veggies, Onions, or Peppers as desired
    • Shredded Cheese of your choice
    • Seasonings of your choice

And for those of you who opt to cook over your RV range top, try:

  • Meal in a Skillet
    Meal in a Skillet is just that, an entire meal in a skillet!

    • 1 or 2 pounds of ground beef (depending on the number of people)
    • 1 undrained can whole kernel corn
    • 1 undrained can white or ranch-style beans
    • 1 onion
    • 2 to 3 medium to large potatoes, sliced round (like chips!)
    • 1 can tomatoes
    • Salt and pepper
    • Optional: For those who’d like cornbread, 1 to 2 packages of cornbread mix

In a cast iron skillet, cook and season beef. Next, layer sliced potatoes, season. Continue layering and seasoning with corn, beans, and tomatoes. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender and serve! (If you decided to serve with cornbread, bake cornbread after layers are assembled. Serves 4-6.
