Regardless of where or when we camp there are a few common traditions that occur each trip. One starts each morning around 9:00 am as campers emerge from tents and trailers everywhere. The smell begins to waft in the air as bacon starts to sizzle on camp stoves and grill throughout the park. Fellow campers begin preparation for the ritual of breakfast, a ritual that only exits at the campground. We rarely cook bacon on any other occasion, but when we camp it is a standard item on the grocery list, one that is expected in the same way as smore’s and spider dogs.
I have been researching tips for cooking and baking in an RV oven. I no longer use my oven, mainly because my one and only experience was a disaster. We were having a pot luck dinner and I volunteered to make roasted potatoes for 30. (I know, crazy idea, right!) I peeled and chopped, peeled and chopped, and then peeled and chopped some more. Once all the chopping was done I coated them with olive oil, seasoned them and separated them onto 3 trays. Two went in my oven and one on the BBQ.
Since I started this blog in December 2014 I have seen some amazing dutch oven dishes. It has made me want to acquire some cast iron cooking pots and certainly a dutch oven. I came across this handy cooking chart and can’t help but wonder if it is really this easy. For those of you who use a dutch oven can you please confirm this in the comments and share links to any yummy recipes.
Here is a link to how to make a Swedish Log Candle. It is great for cooking over and burns for hours. You can cut the log ahead of time and take it with you.
Simple as that!
Thanks Pat Owens for the great article link! Please send me anything you think other campers can use, I am happy to share it.
