Tips for cooking in a camper

25. May 2023

Are you planning a road trip in a camper and want to make sure you can enjoy delicious meals without any hassle? Cooking in a campervan can be one of the most enjoyable aspects of a road trip, but it can also be challenging due to the limited space. Here are some tips to make cooking in your camper a breeze.

Keep it simple when grocery shopping

Remember that your camper’s storage space and fridge are limited, so don’t overdo it at the grocery store. Stick to small amounts and a limited variety of ingredients. Simple dishes like hot dogs, pasta, and hamburgers can be delicious allies during a road trip.

Clean up thoroughly

The last thing you want is to be smelling yesterday’s food all night long. Properly dispose of your garbage and wash all dishes, pots, and pans before you go to bed. This will also prevent critters from being attracted to your camper.

Take advantage of daylight

Do your cooking and cleaning during the day when you have natural light. If you have late plans, prepare your food ahead of time so that you can simply heat it up when you return from your adventures.

Prepare in advance

To save time and space, chop and prepare your vegetables at home and store them in labeled plastic bags. This way, you’ll have vegetables ready to cook and won’t take up too much storage space.

Use small jars

Measure liquids such as oil and sauces that you want to carry and pack them in small jars or squeeze bottles. This way, you’ll have more room for other ingredients, and you won’t end up with a lot of trash and wasted food.

Use ingredients for multiple meals

Get creative with your meals by using ingredients for multiple dishes. For example, the sausages you used for pasta at lunch can be used for hot dogs at dinner. Fewer ingredients mean less stuff to prepare and fewer bags of groceries floating around in the camper kitchen.

Remember that trying local food is one of the most important parts of traveling and seeing new places. Don’t forget to balance what you prepare in your camper with what you try in each destination you visit.

With these tips, you’ll be able to cook up delicious meals in your camper without any hassle. Enjoy your road trip and happy cooking!
