You can still have a full turkey dinner with all of the “fixin’s” even if you are in your RV. If you don’t have a regular oven or a convection microwave, you can bake turkey over the fire – or you can fry it if you brought a fryer with you.

Before you head out be sure to stop by Leisure Time RV to pick up any accessories and parts you may need for your Thanksgiving outing. If you don’t have an oven but you have a grill, you can still make some great Thanksgiving treats.

Easy Mini Pies

  • 1 can pop and bake croissants
  • 1 can pie filling
  • Granulated sugar

Open the can of croissants and separate them. Place 4 of them on a greased baking sheet. Press them out a bit. Add pie filling to the center. Cover with a second croissant and crimp the edges. Make two or three 1-inch cuts in the top. Sprinkle them with sugar. Bake on 350 until golden brown.

If you are using a grill, turn on one or two burners, then put the baking sheet opposite the lit burners. Adjust the flame so that the temperature stays about 350 degrees.

Easy Whoopie Pies

Make the cake part of these ahead of time. You’ll need two chocolate cake mixes. Gather the ingredients for one of the mixes. Mix the ingredients plus the second cake mix together. Drop the dough onto greased and floured cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean – about 8 to 12 minutes. Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container.

When you’re ready to eat, make filling. You’ll need a tub of whipped topping and about ½ cup confectioner’s sugar. Fold the sugar into the whipped topping until dissolved. Place a big dollop of the whipped cream mixture onto the bottom of one of the cookies. Top with a second cookie. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.

You can also make your own filling by whipping 2 pints of heavy cream until thickened. Add about a ½ cup of confectioners’ sugar and whip it until it’s stiff. For a sweeter filling, add more confectioners’ sugar.

Be sure to stop by Leisure Time RV before you leave for service if needed, or to pick up any accessories you may need to make your Thanksgiving dinner easier to prepare.
