While a change to the traditional holiday plans can be too much for some, those who like to try new things will find that holidays in an RV are an exciting experience! With a few adjustments and some countertop appliances, your holiday feast will be just as good as always!
Is a Full Feast Too Much?
Food is a central part of holiday celebrations, so this is an important question to ask! The answer isn’t the same for everyone. If you and your significant other are the only ones celebrating the holidays in an RV, pulling out all the stops might be a lot of effort. However, if you know you’ll have plenty of participants at the table, the answer is no! A full feast is not too much, though it might feel a little overwhelming in the tiny kitchen of your camper.
Holidays in an RV might take a little more strategy, but it can be done! Check out these tips and recipes for a successful and delicious day!
Tips for the Holidays
Planning your menu in advance is a great way to organize for Holidays in an RV. Casseroles, pies, and other similar dishes can be prepared a day or so in advance, freeing up the oven for your turkey or ham! In preparation for this, make sure to empty out your refrigerator.
Try to take prep work outside to keep the crowd out of the kitchen. Folding tables are a worthy investment, especially since they double as extra seating for the big meal. Outside is the best option for a family meal, especially with a roaring campfire going on nearby!
If making dishes ahead won’t work for you, invest in a few countertop appliances, like a crockpot, instant pot, and hot plate if your camper doesn’t have a stove. There are plenty of recipes that utilize these tools to their fullest, so check them out below!
