What to Eat for Breakfast When On The Road

Breakfast is such an important meal when you are hitting the road in your RV. You need that morning meal to fuel your adventures, your work, and the traveling for the day. Unlike when you are home, when you are on the road you should never skip breakfast. If you’re wondering what kinds of breakfasts you can cook in your RV, we have listed some ideas below. Here are some easy camping breakfasts you and your family will surely enjoy.

Griddle

To start, you have to have the right tools in order to cook. RVs are large and don’t fit through drive throughs, also a lot of times there are limited food options on the road, and eating out all of the time will get expensive. Two cooking tools we highly recommend for anyone with an RV are a griddle and a microwave. In your griddle, you can cook sausage links, bacon, eggs, hash browns, pancakes, etc. You basically can cook anything you would normally have for breakfast. To add in some much needed vegetables to your meal, omelets are a great idea. Easily made right on the griddle! 

Stovetop

If you have an operable stove in your RV, then oatmeal and grits are two options that are quick and easy that can be made right in your RV kitchen.

Oatmeal is cheap and so versatile. You can add in apples and cinnamon, berries and yogurt, or bananas and nuts to make it more flavorful.

Grits are another breakfast favorite that is easy and can be made right on the stovetop. If you’re not familiar with this food, grits are simply ground up hominy. They come in a small bag similar to cornmeal. Some people from certain regions serve them sweet, but they are the best seasoned with just salt, pepper, and butter. They’re surprisingly filling by themselves, but grits are even better with a couple pieces of bacon on the side. Just cook them on the stovetop as directed on the bag.

Cold Breakfast Ideas:

There are some mornings when you will be pinched for time or simply too tired to cook. On these mornings, having a simple cold breakfast is best. Overnight oats, cereal, bagels and cream cheese, and muffins are great options for a quick and easy breakfast on the go. We also recommend a high quality blender. With these blenders, you can make a nutritious shake within minutes that will prepare you for the day ahead. These blenders can also make hot soups if you want something a little warmer for breakfast, like porridge.

Plumbing Issues

There is nothing worse than having an issue with your toilet or pump while traveling in your RV. Not only do you not have a working restroom, you also can have a foul smell that will ruin your trip. To prevent this from happening you should:

          •        Limit the amount of toilet paper you use. If you need to use more, have a wastebasket you can throw the excess into.

          •        Never leave the black water drain pipe open, this causes all of the liquid waste to drain and will leave the sticky stuff stuck inside.

          •        Have a snake line available as the first layer of defense. However, if this doesn’t work, it might be time to call TNT RV

Electrical Problems

Trying to repair anything having to do with electricity on your own is a bad idea. Electrical connections can cause fires if they are wired incorrectly and the electricity itself can electrocute someone who doesn’t fully understand what they are doing. If you are having electrical issues, take your RV to an RV repair center immediately. In order to prevent electrical issues you should:

          •        The outlet boxes in RV tend to become loose from the vibrations of constant travel. These can easily be replaced without having much experience.

          •        RVs typically come with lead-acid batteries, although there is nothing wrong with this, switching to using lithium batteries can make maintenance much easier and they have a much longer life span.

RV HVAC 

When you are traveling across the country, comfort is extremely important. Having an HVAC system that works at providing you both heat and air conditioning is essential to that comfort. In order to prevent HVAC issues you should:

          •        Replace air vent filters if your AC is blowing air but it isn’t cold.

          •        Check to make sure your thermostat isn’t the issue.

Conclusion

Traveling in an RV is a great experience to do as a family or by yourself, but maintenance issues will happen. Help yourself to avoid these frustrating experiences by contacting TNT RV today for a check up before you head back out on the road.
