Summer RVing Day: A Delicious Roadmap for Your Culinary Journey

Embark on a gastronomic adventure during RV camping with these tantalizingly simple recipes. From breakfast indulgences, savoury dinners, or sweet treats, make your RV kitchen a one-stop shop for delicious food along the way.

Breakfast on Wheels

Whip up these quick, hearty breakfast recipes designed to fuel your RV adventures with lasting energy.

Heart-Warming Oatmeal

A warm and filling bowl of oatmeal is a perfect way to start your day on the road. And with endless topping options, you can customize it to your liking. Cook up some quick oats in a pot on the stove, or use an instant oatmeal pack with boiled water for even faster results. Then, let the creativity flow. From fresh fruit and nuts to chocolate chips, peanut butter, and maple syrup, creating a DIY oatmeal bar everyone will love is easy.

Heat-and-Eat Breakfast Burritos

Premade breakfast burritos are a great grab-and-go option for a hassle-free start to early-morning adventures. Before hitting the road, cook up some scrambled eggs, your choice of breakfast meat, beans, and salsa. Then, wrap it all up in a tortilla and freeze. When ready to eat, warm the burritos in the oven or skillet.

Expert Kitchen Tips

  • Maximize Space: Utilize collapsible kitchenware such as bowls, colanders, and measuring cups to save space. RV kitchens are compact, and every inch counts.
  • Cooling Solutions: Pair an EcoFlow GLACIER Portable Refrigerator with a portable power station like the EcoFlow DELTA 2 or EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max for 5-11 days of cooling. This combination ensures ingredients stay fresh and drinks chilled throughout your trip without needing constant electrical hookups.
  • Easy Cleanup: Make one-pan meals whenever possible to reduce the amount of dishwashing and conserve water.

Lunchbox Favorites

Midday meals are essential; whether you’re on the move for a short trip or RV-ing full-time, easy options you can pack and take along with you are crucial. Try these easy lunch recipes that are as fun to eat as they are to make.

Simple Sandwiches

Sandwiches are a classic lunch option for a reason. They’re quick, easy, and customizable to your preferences. Pack some bread and your favourite fixings, from peanut butter and jelly to deli meat and cheese, so that you can make sandwiches on the go.

Mason Jar Salads

For a healthier midday meal, try making mason jar salads beforehand. Spread dressing on the bottom, then add layers of lettuce or greens. Continue with vegetables and protein in a jar for a portable lunch option. Shake it up when you’re ready to eat.

Taco Salad Bowls

Try making taco salad bowls for another fun twist on salads that even kids will love. Cook some ground beef or turkey with taco seasoning and serve it over a bed of lettuce or rice, topped with shredded cheese and guacamole, for something balanced and tasty.

Expert Kitchen Tips

  • Compact Containers: Use stackable or collapsible containers to maximize limited pantry space.
  • Customizable Options: Create a DIY sandwich or salad bar with assorted fillings to build the perfect lunch. 
  • Zero-Waste Swaps: Invest in beeswax wraps or reusable bags to reduce waste and keep your outdoor lunch experience eco-friendly.
  • Invest in the Best Kit: Consider investing in equipment that will make your cooking journey easier for the long haul. An EcoFlow Portable Power Station allows you to cook on the go as you can power many essential kitchen tools, like an induction hob, to cook your meals. The EcoFlow GLACIER Portable Refrigerator makes food storage portable and straightforward, allowing you to keep food fresh for up to five days.  

Campfire Classics

When you don’t have access to electricity hookups or a portable and renewable power source like EcoFlow DELTA Pro and EcoFlow Portable Solar Panels, these campfire meals will satisfy everyone’s cravings without needing an oven or stove.

Grilled Foil-Pack Veggies

Gather your favourite seasonal vegetables and toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and herbs. Wrap them tightly in aluminum foil and place them on the campfire grate or coals for about 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through until you get a steaming medley of nutritious and delicious veggies.

Campfire Chili

A hearty bowl of one-pot chilli is perfect for a cool evening around the campfire. Brown your choice of ground protein in a large pot over the campfire, then stir in onions, garlic, and bell peppers until soft. Add canned tomatoes, beans, and chilli spices, letting it all simmer for a comforting camp dinner.

Expert Kitchen Tips

  • Use a Grate: Position a grill grate over your campfire to create a stable cooking surface and regulate the heat.
  • Always Have Foil: Aluminum foil is indispensable for campfire cooking. Used to wrap food for steaming and grilling, it also makes cleanup a breeze.
  • Safety First: Always practice campfire safety and keep a safe distance from the flame while cooking.
  • Prioritize Food Hygiene: It’s easy to accidentally not practice safe food hygiene when cooking with a campfire. Luckily, the EcoFlow Glacier is portable, meaning you can store perishable food easily while positioning it closely where you’re preparing meals. 

Sweet Treats on the Road

For a dessert that’s easy on prep time but full of taste, check out these confections that’ll delight your fellow travellers and add some sweetness to the evening.

S’mores Galore

The iconic s’more is the original campfire treat that adapts well to RV life. All you need are graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. You can make it with a campfire, RV oven, or microwave. Place a marshmallow on a graham cracker and heat until the marshmallow puffs up and starts to brown. Add a piece of chocolate, top it off with the other graham cracker, and press gently.

No-Bake Cheesecake Jars

For a simple and refreshing no-bake dessert, start with a simple crust by mixing crushed graham crackers with melted butter and press it into the bottom of small jars. Next, whip cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth, and spoon it over your crust. Refrigerate for a few hours until set, then top with fresh fruit and serve.

Expert Kitchen Tips

  • Quick and Cool Desserts: Opt for no-bake desserts or recipes with minimal cooking time.
  • Microwave Magic: Don’t underestimate your microwave for dessert-making. It can be a valuable tool for melting chocolate for s’mores or softening cream cheese for no-bake desserts. The EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max is the perfect portable power station to get the job done because it can power a 1300W microwave for approximately 1 hour, allowing you to make the most out of outdoor surroundings while enjoying quality time with family and friends. 

Beverage Bonanza

Every meal needs a drink to complement it. Try these beverages on your RV adventures, or add them to your full-time RV living drink rotation.

Refreshing Lemonade

For hot and sunny driving days, nothing beats a classic lemonade. Mix fresh lemon juice and sugar to make lemonade, then add a few sprigs of mint for a refreshing twist. Serve over ice. Add a splash of vodka or gin for an adult version and turn it into a cocktail. 

But most importantly — don’t forget the ice! Skip carrying huge bags of ice to and from your campground. Did you know the EcoFlow GLACIER Portable Refrigerator not only keeps perishables cold and frozen but also provides ice? Enjoy the perfect lemonade every time. 

Cozy Hot Chocolate

Warm up with a rich and creamy hot chocolate. Begin with either powdered cocoa or melted chocolate bars, then mix in milk, sugar to taste, and a pinch of cinnamon. Add a dollop of whipped cream or marshmallows on top.

Expert Kitchen Tips

  • Drive and Charge Simultaneously: Charge up your EcoFlow DELTA Portable Power Station and RV battery when you bundle it with the EcoFlow 800W Alternator Charger. You can even add the EcoFlow GLACIER Portable Refrigerator to keep your drinks cool and all essential devices powered up throughout your journey.
  • Storage Solutions: Utilize insulated bottles or storage containers for your drinks during hikes or on the road.
