Camping World has a 5 ingredient cookbook for campers on their shelves. I've seen it in several of their stores. Also available on Amazon.

1# ground beef (browned with chopped onion at home). Combine with 2 boxes macaroni & cheese made at campsite.

Thin 2 Tblsp honey with a tsp or so lemon juice and add a shake of poppy seeds. Cut up 1 apple, 1 banana, 1 pear, 1 orange. Toss with honey dressing and enjoy. Use whatever fruit combination you have but always include an orange.

I don't like frying anything inside, so I fry up several 1 lb packs of ground beef for tacos, sloppy joes, or hamburger stew. I also make a big pot of soup to take packed in 1 or 2 servings in the freezer.
Hamburgers and wings are cooked on the grill outside.
I cook up chicken for making alfredo, or salad.
Omelettes are always good and easy.
I take about 3 lb cooked bacon with me and a big package of cooked sausage patties. And we like frozen mixed vegies.

What do you use for your grill cleaning? My grill oven is getting really greasy and I have found this article containing some information. Can you please give any suggestions?

Try looking for 5 ingredient or less recipes. There are lots. Or "one pot" recipes. For a simple recipe that I came up with back went we used to tent camp:

1 box rice a roni (a homemade mix also works) in chicken or beef flavour
Meat: pork chops (raw), chicken thighs (boneless, skinless & raw), kielbasa or similar smoked sausage

Make the rice a roni in a skillet just like the box says. After adding the water & seasoning packet, add the meat on top of the rice. Cover and cook, just like the box says for the length of time the box says. When time is up, remove the meat and fluff the rice mixture up a little.


No paticular place.

Are you strictly focused on cooking in the camper with the stove/oven?

If not, what tools do you have:

- Gridled meat and fried potatoes. Add green beans or similar veggie at the same time.
- Tacos: Fry up meat (grease drains as you cook), mix in spices (Tammy makes up a jar of her own mix). On the other side, griddle up the shells with melty cheese, Then drop some meat in, fold and ready for the table. Doesn't take even 10min.
- Smash Burgers: slow fry up onions till soft and brown, you can add mushrooms or other toppings if desired. Make meat into balls, then smash them onto the griddle with the spatula until they are maybe 1/4 inch thick. They fry quick being thin and don't shrink into nasty hockey pucks like so many BBQ grill burgers. Top with cheese. Toast up the buns and plate up.
- Pad Prik Pow Moo (aka: Thai Basil Pork): More popular in Thailand than Pad Thai. This one does require you to pick up Tum Yum Paste at an Asian store (no this isn't the authentic version). Ideally, you would add a handful of Thai Basil, Fish Sauce (no it's not fishy tasting) and a few Thai Chilies but still good without. On the stove make up some white rice. Fry up ground pork (again self draining for the grease but don't go overboard getting rid of it all). Mix in the Paste, a bit of sugar, garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce, Thai Basil and Chilies (to your preferred spice level)...I usually mix it all up in a bowl and then dump on the meat as it's mostly done cooking. Once fried up, plate up on top of the rice. Then fry up eggs (over easy so the yolk is runny) right in the left over spicy grease and put on top. Not counting the rice, another 10min to cook meal.
- Grilled sandwiches are quick and easy. Stick a pot in the corner warming up canned soup to go with it.
- Pizza: Pick up frozen pizza, extra mozzarella and any other topping you want or have on hand. Set to low and put pizza on. This does require a cover to hold in the heat. The only downside is it doesn't brown the cheese (I've considered picking up a small propane torch but that doesn't jive with quick and easy). The crust becomes nice and crispy.

Instapot (can be placed outside if not raining to keep heat out of the camper):
- Meat and rice: Throw chicken/pork chops/pork country ribs...etc in, with some rice, water and spices of your preference. The meat can be frozen solid so long as it fits (great option if you forgot to pull something out of the freezer). If desired, you can add a can of mushroom soup. Set for 15min and let the pressure release naturally.
- Lasagna: Fry up hamburger ahead of time. Layer in dry noodles, hamburger, canned spaghettis sauce, cheese. Add ricotta, spices and other items as desired to dress it up. Set for 2 min and use the quick release (only really cooking the noodles). It's not pretty little squares but still tastes good.
- Kraut, Potatoes and ribs (or most any port cut): Toss it all in, set for 15min, natural release...done. Apple slices are a nice addition and if you don't like it too tart, brown sugar (or white) takes the edge off.
