Cooking in an RV certainly has its challenges due to lack of space and not all the luxuries that you have at home. But to make your life easier while out on the road, a few RV cooking hacks will make meal prepping and preparing so much easier. Here’s a number of RV cooking hacks that you need to know about.

If you’re seeking an easier way to make eggs and less of a hassle cleaning up after, look no further than this campfire egg hack. Before you set out on the road, beat your egg mixture, and pour it into a quart size ziploc bag. If you’re like me and enjoy diced up onion, tomatoes, cheese, and whatever else you use to make your eggs taste better, now’s the time to add to your mixture.
Next, place the date-labeled baggies in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to eat them, boil some water in a pan and add the bag of eggs. In no more than 15 minutes you’ll be enjoying a delicious hot breakfast.
An electric griddle is also a fantastic way to cook eggs (and bacon and home fries and…). You can still store your pre-mixed eggs in the ziploc bags. Then cook them up on the griddle (we always set ours up outside of the camper). Keeps the mess and grease (and smell) out of the RV.
Switch to a French Press
For those of you that find yourselves boondocking with your RV at times but can’t go a morning without a hot cup of Joe, a French press will make sure you’re covered. All you need to do is boil some water, measure out your coffee, pour, and then press after a few minutes to make an incredibly smooth cup of coffee.
Cereal for Breakfast
Cereal boxes can take up a lot of space. Use sandwich sized ziploc bags and fill them ¾ of your favorite cereals and label them. To keep things simple, pour your cereal into a solo cup, and then add the milk. Simply throw away (or wash for more uses) when you’re done.
Versatile Cooking Ware
Finding the right cooking ware to cover all your cooking needs while not taking up too much space is also important. You need a set that’s versatile and indispensable. Just like the name suggests, the Banks Fry Bake cooking ware can handle both baking and frying, and be cooked over a campfire or your two-burner stove. You can cook eggs, saute veggies, brownies, and even pizza with it.
We also enjoy our Campmaid dutch oven and stand for many different cooking options. From traditional dutch oven recipes to skillet pizza using the the dutch oven’s lid, there are many delicious ways to cook with this set!
Multipurpose Your Strainer
We absolutely love this idea. You can use your stainless-steel strainer to handle a number of cooking tasks. Besides simply being used as a colander, it’s now a steamer basket and a veggie grill basket. We even use this strainer in our Instant Pot to make hard boiled eggs!
Drawer Liner for the Dishes
When you’re out on the highway and have to slow your RV in a hurry, there’s the chance that some of your dishes might shift or come crashing out of one of the cabinets. By placing drawer liners between your dishes will prevent scratches and having to clean up shattered ceramic pieces when you’ve reached your destination. This is one of my favorite RV cooking hacks! (Of course, you can avoid breakage altogether by using plastic or paper plates in your camper!)
Stainless Steel Skewers
If you’re looking for an easy way to grill meat, veggies, and fruit, be sure to have stainless steel skewers that you can use over and over again. But if all you have are wooden skewers, place them in water for at least 30 minutes so that they don’t burn.
Having the right cooking ware and knowing a few amazing easy-to-do hacks will make your RV cooking experience that much sweeter.
