This took us about two seasons to compile, but I think we finally have camp cooking down. With the RV we pay for full hook up which means we are already paying for electricity. We used to do all of our cooking on little propane cooktops, but that meant that we had to carry all the pots and pan. This was pretty bulky and it meant that I had so much more to clean, because we didn’t have pans big enough to cook everything we needed. This past season we decided to switch things up, and boy am I glad we did. Well, I can’t really say that because my husband does all the cooking when we go camping… maybe that is why I enjoy it so much!
We bought a griddle at target around the holidays so we got a great deal on it. We use it to cook pancakes, bacon, and anything else we can think of. Clean up is super easy and we can store it in our outside cooking compartment. You can find it on Amazon here.
Once we began using the griddle and fell in love with it we decided to buy an electric skillet. My Vo (grandmother) always cooked with one and I remember thinking that it was pretty cool. Well way to go Vo! She is one smart lady, because that thing is fabulous! We can whip up our breakfast scramble, or camp breakfast potatoes . We can make sausage and peppers and pretty much anything else you can think of. This cleans up really quick and like the griddle we can store it outside in the compartment. You can find it on Amazon here.
With those two appliances we whipped out at least 3 pans that we were carrying around! Plus they both run on electricity so we don’t need to worry about remembering propane.
Last year we began traveling with a crockpot! Let me tell you this makes cooking so simple I can’t believe we didn’t think of this sooner. You can find it on Amazon here.
On Saturdays when you want to explore you can throw something devious in there like my Camp Chili, and you can go about your day without worrying about making dinner later! When you get back dinner is ready to be devoured!
Our last amazing find was a small propane grill. Now we have the hook up on our RV so we can attach it to our propane line. Those grills are pretty pricey and we weren’t sure how we would like it so we decided to buy a twenty dollar propane grill at Walmart. Yes, it was only $20, an guess what, we love it. We use it every time we go camping to whip up anything from grilled chicken, burgers, to hot dogs. It was one of the best purchases we made for the RV.
