There’s no doubt that cooking in your RV involves some creativity, but that little bit of resourcefulness is well worth the time spent with your family on the road for the holidays. Follow these few tips for cooking Thanksgiving dinner in your RV, and you’re guaranteed to have a meal as delicious as the one you’d cook in your spacious kitchen at home.

The Main Course

Turkey is certainly the star of Thanksgiving dinner, and it’s something many RV-lovers don’t want to sacrifice. Fortunately, you don’t have to. If you can’t find a small turkey that will fit in your RV oven, cut the turkey in half or cook turkey breasts instead.

Not too worried about the turkey? A ham will easily fit into your RV oven, and it will feed a lot of guests too.

The “Fixin’s”

Everyone has a Thanksgiving side they look forward to the most. It may seem impossible to please all of your guests, but you’ll be surprised how much you can pull off with a little extra preparation.

Cook casseroles a day or two ahead of time and just pop them in the oven to reheat before the meal. This will save you tons of time on Thanksgiving Day, so you can enjoy more time with the ones you love. Don’t forget about all of your resources either. Use the stove top, microwave, oven and outdoor kitchen (if you have one). You can even enjoy s’mores over the bonfire as a new tradition instead of baking a pie.

Buy From the Locals

Wherever you take your Oklahoma RV this Thanksgiving, it’s likely there’s a farmer’s market or locally-owned deli nearby. Pick up delicious pies, sides, breads and local veggies if you need them. The farmers will be thankful you did!
