Cooking a delicious meal for you and your loved ones is a rewarding task, but have you ever tried whipping up a storm in your caravan? Many people are put off by the idea of cooking in their holiday caravans, citing lack of space and inspiration as some of their main reasons for choosing not to cook a homemade meal.
However, eating out every night can quickly add up and become expensive, especially if you prefer fine dining or have a large party with you. Luckily, there is nothing to be afraid of when it comes to cooking in your caravan - really, it's not that much different from cooking in the comfort of your kitchen back home.
To help you get started, we have put together five of our favourite quick and easy recipes for a tasty home cooked meal cooked right there in your caravan.
For a dinner the whole family will love, opt for a traditional pasta bake. You can also easily chop and change the recipe, adding in your favourite sauce or ingredients and creating a delicious pasta bake for everyone to share. Serve with garlic bread and enjoy!
Curries are both filling and warming on those chilly evenings. They're also quick to make and avoid creating too much washing up - perfect for the caravan! We recommend using a jar of curry sauce to simplify things even further.
A stir-fry is super quick to make and offers lots of options in terms of customising the meal to your personal tastes. Plus, you can choose to speed up the process even more and cut down on prep time by buying a fresh stir fry mix of vegetables from your local shop or supermarket. Simply add your choice of meat, some noodles and a sauce to complete the meal.
What better way to start the day in your holiday caravan than with a fried breakfast? Include all the staples - sausages, bacon, eggs, toast, hash browns, tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans - for a real morning feast.
Perfect for a quick and easy lunch or a simple tea, baked potatoes are both filling and delicious. For the healthy option, serve with some tuna or just a sprinkling of cheese, or go for baked beans or coleslaw. Alternatively, you could try making some chilli to have with your baked potato.
Although these are just a few simple recipes and dinner ideas, there is no reason why you can't get creative and try your hand at something a little more complex. Remember, cooking in holiday caravans shouldn't be a chore. At the end of the day, you are on holiday, after all!
