When you think of camping, the meals you imagine cooking are probably things like hot dogs or oatmeal for convenience. But one of the awesome things about RV camping is that you have so many more options for making delicious meals. Many RV models even have full kitchens, enabling you to create almost any meal you want.
Even though my RV has a full kitchen, I like to keep things quick and simple. Here are six fun and easy RV meals that I have personally prepared in my RV:
Tasty Turkey Tacos
Tacos are so easy to make and are great for RV travel. I keep a package of corn tortillas on hand and usually have simple ingredients like tomatoes, onions and cilantro in the fridge. You can do so much with so few ingredients!
You can swap out the turkey for black beans or rice to make this dish vegetarian. Here’s the recipe:
Ingredients:1 lb ground turkeyCorn tortillas2 diced tomatoes½ sliced purple onion1 bunch cilantro1 tablespoon Mexican spice mix (you can find this at most major grocery stores)Optional: Cheese, salsa and sour creamTo Prepare:
Fry the turkey with the spice mix in a pan on a medium flame. While the turkey is cooking dice the tomatoes and onions, and chop the cilantro.
After the turkey is cooked through (no pink) drain the juice. Lay the tortillas right on top of the turkey and cover for two minutes to warm them.
Remove the tortillas and place the turkey and other ingredients on top. So easy and delicious!
Lemon Pepper Salmon With Zucchini
I didn’t start liking salmon until I was 24. I was backpacking through New Zealand when a wrong turn led me to a fish house (yuck!). Fish wasn’t my thing, but I was also ready to chew my arm off from hunger after a long hike. So I decided on an order of salmon to keep me going.
The thing is, salmon can be a “fishy” tasting fish in other dishes — but wow was that salmon tasty! I loved how tender, light and fresh it was. It became an instant favorite.
Now, I make it all the time in our RV because it’s easy and healthy. Here’s how:
Ingredients:Two fillets of salmon1 – 2 zucchiniSliced lemon½ tablespoon of olive oilA few sprinkles of salt, pepper and garlic powder
Coat the salmon with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Lay the lemon slices on the salmon.
Put the salmon in an oven-safe baking dish and cover or wrap in foil (you can put it on the BBQ too). Lay sliced zucchini around the salmon. Cook for 12 minutes at 350°F.
I like my salmon tender, but if you like yours more cooked through, aim for 15 to 18 minutes in the oven.
Basil, Egg And Sausage Breakfast Casserole
I like protein in the morning. A bowl of oatmeal is something I’ll turn to in a pinch, but a meal with eggs is way more my speed.
That’s why I love this super simple one-dish egg casse
