Hosting Christmas Dinner in Your RV

Taking a trip in your RV over the holidays doesn’t mean you need to skip Christmas dinner or eat it at a dingy roadside restaurant. Although the space may be a little tighter than at home, you’ve got all of the tools you need to cook a lavish meal right there in your motor home. It doesn’t have to be stressful either; get the whole family involved and let the great outdoors provide a backdrop for your best Christmas yet.

The Centerpiece

Although a turkey or ham may seem way too large to cook in your RV’s oven, there are a few alternative routes you can take to ensure the Christmas turkey or ham makes it to the table. You can always deep fry or grill your turkey or ham, but this means you’re forced to bring a grill and fryer with you. The best alternative to carrying around extra cargo is to buy turkey breasts or ham steaks instead of a full turkey or ham. Bake them in your RV’s oven for that traditional baked Christmas taste.

Grocery Shopping

It may seem obvious to stock your RV’s fridge with all of the supplies for Christmas dinner before you hit the road, but if you’ve got a few days in the vehicle before the holiday, early shopping isn’t such a great idea. If you’re headed to an area that will have grocery stores nearby, stop at one near your destination. Frozen pies can thaw and fresh breads can go stale after days of travel.

Use All of Your Options

It seems like most Christmas dinner fixings are cooked in the oven, but this is where you need to get creative. Choose side dishes that can be successfully cooked on the stove, in the microwave or even in a crockpot if you travel with one. If you have an outdoor kitchen, use it in addition to your interior RV kitchen, and don’t be afraid to buy a couple of fresh dishes from the supermarket’s deli if you’re short on cooking space.
