Whenever we start to plan an extended trip in our RV, we always put some thought into camping food. Truth be told, we often eat better while on the road then when we are at home! Since we tend to spend our daytime hours exploring the world, my goal is to plan menus of quick and easy breakfasts and dinners, along with snacks to get us through the afternoon. I typically try to cook enough food to have leftovers - making a second meal even quicker. (As you follow our journey, you'll see how we make minor changes in an attempt to make our meals less repetitive.)

If you are at all like us, you may be on the lookout for RV menu ideas, quick RV meals and easy camping recipes. This post has just that - an 11 day RV road trip menu including recipes for the last leg of our long journey. Other than meals prepared using standard RV appliances, you'll find recipes that will put your grill, griddle, slow cooker and panini press to use as well.

Day 31 Menu

Breakfast

Cereal

When we need a quick breakfast before traveling to a new campsite, we often rely on cereal. It's so easy to prepare, is filling and we can each choose our favorite from what we have in our pantry. By using paper bowls and plastic spoons, clean-up is a breeze so we can hit the road sooner.



Dinner

Oven Tacos

Although it wasn't Tuesday, I wanted an easy dinner following our day of driving. With the taco meat mixture prepared before leaving home, Oven Tacos was perfect. (I find that the recipe yields enough meat for 24 tacos. I use the ground turkey option and the only other substitution that I make is to use store bought taco seasoning in place of the homemade seasoning. After cooking, I divide the meat mixture into four zippered bags. After letting out all of the air, I flatten the bags as much as possible. Once frozen, they are easy to store in our RV fridge!)

With the oven preheating, I filled six crispy taco shells with the defrosted meat and topped each with shredded cheese. Once the tacos were baking in the oven, I shredded some lettuce and chopped green onion, tomato and avocado. We each dressed our tacos with the diced toppings plus sliced black olives.

Day 32 Menu

Breakfast

Yogurt Parfaits

Another of our "no cooking required" breakfasts that we both enjoy is yogurt parfaits. Being quick to prepare and easily customizable, we can each make our own. Starting with any flavor of yogurt, we add our preferred amounts of fruit (usually berries and/or bananas), granola and nuts. (We don't get fancy - we just mix everything in our bowls rather than layering the ingredients.). The perfect parfait makes for a great start to our day.



Dinner

Grilled Pork Loin with Corn, Baked Beans and Garlic Bread

We had enough grilled pork loin, corn and baked beans left from previous meals, so the only prep work for our dinner was making some garlic bread. After spreading butter on several slices of French bread, I sprinkled garlic powder and Italian seasoning on top. While the bread was under the broiler, we filled and heated our dinner plates. Once the garlic bread was toasted, we were ready to eat!


Day 33 Menu

Breakfast

Breakfast Tacos

The leftover egg mixture from breakfast several days earlier made for another easy breakfast. All that we had to do was reheat the eggs and warm some tortillas. (To soften and warm the tortillas, I wrap them in a damp paper towel and heat them for about 30 seconds in the microwave.) After filling our flour tortillas, we added shredded cheese and salsa and were ready to eat.

(While originally preparing the egg mixture took a little time, since breakfast tacos are one of our favorites, we didn't mind. I crisped several slices of pre-cooked bacon in the microwave. We then pre-cooked some diced new potatoes in the microwave for a few minutes until soft. We mixed the potatoes with scrambled eggs, water, diced green pepper, chopped onion, broken bacon pieces and black pepper. Scott poured the egg mixture on the griddle where he also heated our tortillas once the eggs were almost cooked.)



Dinner

Ultimate Grilled Chicken Tossed Salad with Mozzarella Garlic Toast

Once again, I received a reward of free Chick-fil-a Grilled Chicken Tenders. Coupled with ingredients for an ultimate grilled chicken tossed salad plus a side of bread, we had a great meal. To prepare the bread for the broiler, I sprinkled garlic powder on buttered French bread. After topping the bread with shredded mozzarella, I added Italian seasoning.

I started the salad by dividing some torn iceberg lettuce between two plates. Next, I diced Roma tomatoes, cucumbers and hard-boiled eggs and added one-half of each to the plates. Before adding the remaining salad ingredients, I placed the mozzarella garlic toast under the broiler. After cutting a navel orange, I added the orange pieces along with some dried blueberries, shredded mozzarella and fried onion to the salad plates. With the toast out of the oven, we each added dressing to our salads and we were ready to eat.

Day 34 Menu

Breakfast

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuits with Breakfast Potatoes

After separating and placing a tube of biscuits on a tray for baking in the oven, I diced two small red potatoes. I seasoned the potatoes with black pepper and began cooking them on the stove top. With the biscuits baking and potatoes on the stove, I cooked three slices of precooked bacon in the microwave until crisp.

I scrambled together three eggs, water, black pepper and sliced green onion in a microwave safe dish. Once the bacon was out of the microwave, I replaced it with the egg mixture and cooked it much like I would cook an omelet. Just before the eggs were fully cooked, I covered them with shredded cheese and returned the dish to the microwave until the cheese was melted.



By this time, everything was ready. For the bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. I sliced four of the biscuits in half and placed 1/4 of the egg and cheese mixture on the bottom half of each biscuit. Before replacing the biscuit tops, I split the bacon among the biscuits. After adding the breakfast potatoes to each plate, we were ready to eat.

Dinner

Turkey and Bacon Quesadillas

After crisping precooked bacon in the microwave, we used our griddle to cook our easy and quick dinner. Scott heated 6 slices of deli turkey meat and two tortillas on the griddle. Once the meat was hot, we divided the slices between two flour tortillas.

Before covering with a second tortilla, I added some sliced green onions, bacon and shredded cheese. We flipped the quesadillas several times until the cheese was melted and the tortillas were ready to eat. For toppings, we added sour cream, diced tomatoes and chopped avocado.

I should have more thoroughly thought out our day's menu to avoid having bacon for both breakfast and dinner. Oh well!




Day 35 Menu

Breakfast

Pecan Pancakes with Strawberries and Bananas

I followed the recipe as written except for two things. First, I doubled the recipe so that we would have leftovers. Secondly, I added chopped pecans to the batter just before cooking the pancakes on the griddle. (To save a little bit of time in the morning, I mixed the dry ingredients together the evening before.) We topped our pecan pancakes with strawberries and bananas, and of course, some syrup!

Since I blindly doubled the recipe, I was really happy that these have been our favorite pancakes to date. To prepare the pancakes for freezing, I separated them with Saran Wrap. I placed each group of 6 pancakes in a Ziploc bag and they were ready for freezing.

All we have to do is move a bag of pancakes to the refrigerator the evening before we want to eat them so that they can defrost overnight. We'll just pop them in the microwave for 45 - 60 seconds, add toppings and they'll be ready to eat.



Dinner

Frito Pie

I created two "dishes" by shaping two layers of foil into ovals. I layered Fritos, canned chili, chopped onions and shredded cheese in each "dish". Before cooking, I added some more Fritos and shredded cheese. I cooked the Frito pie in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.


Day 36 Menu

Breakfast

Yogurt Parfaits



Dinner

Ultimate Chicken Nachos

After covering a baking sheet with foil, I filled it with a single layer of tortilla chips. The next three layers consisted of canned refried beans, roasted chicken (shredded) and shredded cheese. While the nachos were baking in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes, I chopped tomatoes, avocado and green onions.

Once the tray came out of the oven, we each filled our plates with the tortillas. To complete our Ultimate Chicken Nachos, we added the diced ingredients along with sour cream, sliced black olives and salsa.

Breakfast

Dinner

Garlic Parmesan Tilapia with Broccoli and Dinner Salad

I halved the recipe for the Garlic Parmesan Tilapia and skipped the lemon wedges and parsley since I didn't have either in the RV. While the fish was broiling, I steamed some broccoli in the microwave and made a quick salad. As our trip was winding down, the salad consisted of our remaining iceberg lettuce and cucumber. Before adding our dressing, I topped each salad with some dried blueberries and chopped praline pecans.

Day 38 Menu

Breakfast

Breakfast Paninis with Cherry Vanilla Yogurt

I started by cooking three slices of precooked bacon in the microwave until crisp. Next, I scrambled together three eggs with water and some black pepper, chopped onion and bell pepper. After cooking the eggs in a saute pan on our stovetop, they were ready to be divided between two slices of bread. Before adding a second slice of bread to each sandwich, I topped the eggs with cheese and bacon.



While the breakfast paninis were toasting in the panini press for about five minutes, I placed a small serving of cherry vanilla yogurt on each of our plates.

Dinner

Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas with Hominy and Refried Beans

The recipe that I found for chicken & cheese enchiladas was super easy to make - especially with the roasted chicken that I had brought along. (I did forget to top the enchiladas with the tomatoes and onions - guess I was hungry!) For sides, we finished up our leftover refried beans and opened and heated a can of golden hominy.

Already putting one of our frozen bags of pecan pancakes to good use!



Dinner

Meatball Sliders with Macaroni & Cheese and Green Beans

I started dinner preparation by making a box of macaroni & cheese. To finish up our King's Hawaiian Rolls, I decided to make meatball sliders. While toasting the rolls under the broiler, I cooked 12 frozen meatballs in the microwave. After slicing each meatball in half, I placed four halves along with a slice of provolone cheese on each roll. With the canned green beans heating in the microwave - under the broiler the sliders went again - just long enough to melt the cheese.

Day 40 Menu

Breakfast

Breakfast Tacos

The only difference with today's breakfast tacos is that we used corn tortillas and topped them with green salsa.

Dinner with Friends at Lakeridge RV Park

We originally had other plans, however we were invited to join some folks that we met at the RV park for dinner.




Day 41 Menu

Breakfast

French Toast

For our second to last breakfast, we used up some of our leftover bread by making our favorite French toast on the griddle. After topping our bread with strawberries and syrup, breakfast was ready.

Crockpot Chicken Thighs with Hominy and Pasta Salad

I followed the easy crockpot chicken thighs recipe as written before we ventured out for the day. I also boiled some rotini pasta and once cooked, mixed it with sliced black olives, halved grape tomatoes, Italian dressing and parmesan cheese. With our entree in the crockpot and pasta salad chilling, we were free to have some fun. Upon our return, all I needed to do to get dinner on the table was heat the leftover hominy.

Day 42 Menu

Breakfast

Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

I first preheated the oven and popped open a tube of cinnamon rolls. After arranging the rolls in a pan, I pressed some chopped pecans into the swirls. Once the cinnamon rolls were baked, they just needed to be iced and we were ready for our final breakfast - for this adventure anyway!
