Christmas in your RV sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
And with this year being a bit different and quieter due to COVID and social distancing, a road trip for a Christmas tucked away in your cozy RV might just be the place to be.
Especially with eggnog and a few cold brews along for the ride.
Here are five recipes you can easily whip up in the comfort of your RV home this holiday season:
1. Grilled Main Dish
Whether you want to use turkey or a roast for the main dish is up to you, but make sure whichever you choose, you get a small size.
This Christmas will be celebrated with social distancing in place and fewer people gathered together, if any at all. Your small RV oven can only handle so much!
You can also go non-traditional and instead of a whole turkey, try some turkey sausages on the grill or even cornish game hens. Mix it up this season!
Grilling your meat over the open fire is a great way to celebrate a festive Christmas in your RV. If you cook on the grill, you’ll free up the oven or stove top in the RV to cook the side dishes.
You can always cook your turkey or roast in your RV oven if you bought a small enough size to fit in there. The choice is yours.
2. Roasted Veggies
Roasted veggies are a delicious side dish that always goes well with a roast or turkey, and is easy to make in a small RV kitchen. Most importantly, veggies don’t need much preparation!
Just chop them, spice them, oil them, and throw them in the RV oven and they will be ready in no time.
They can also be cooked over the grill. Some veggies that cook well over the grill are asparagus, green beans, and brussel sprouts.
And if you’re in the mood to spice up your carrots, drizzle them with oil and sprinkle them with some brown sugar for an extra special treat.
3. Crock Pot Meatballs
Meatballs are simple, delicious, and quick. They’re a great appetizer, and perfect for the RV lifestyle.
All you will need is a few simple ingredients, a bag of frozen meatballs, and your crock pot.
For cocktail meatballs only three ingredients are required, and preparation consists of just mixing and throwing everything in the crock pot. Talk about simple and tasty. Definitely RV approved.
4. RV Pie
No Christmas meal is complete without dessert. How about pie? RV pie that is.
Choose any kind of pie you’d like; it can be apple, cranberry, strawberry rhubarb, the list goes on.
Pour the filling into a premade pie crust, toss it in the oven, and that’s it. Now enjoy!
What is Christmas in an RV without eggnog?
Finish your Christmas meal off the most festive way possible: with a nice cup of coffee and eggnog. Try adding some Baileys Irish Cream or Spiced Rum to your dessert beverages for an extra kick.
Imagine sipping on a hot cup of coffee or a creamy cup of eggnog while sitting in front of your RV-sized Christmas tree and admiring your perfectly frosted windows.
If you’re spending the holidays in your RV, there will be a lot of activity in your little kitchen and back and forth between the grill and RV, so make sure your rig is perfectly level!
Nobody wants a lopsided Christmas dinner.
