Long road trips can get expensive if you eat every meal at a restaurant. Instead, prepare some great recipes for when you’re on the road. If you have a motorized RV, you can even make something that requires refrigeration since you have access to the RV while someone is driving.

Stop by Jim’s RV Center in Nichols, New York to pick up food containers and other accessories you may need to keep “road trip food” handy, whether you are in a motorized RV or towing a travel trailer for fifth wheel.

Snack Sandwiches

Build your favorite sandwiches, and then cut them in quarters. Stack them in an airtight container. You can keep the container in an ice chest or you can keep it in the fridge if your fridge is accessible. If your family is also traveling, you may want to make several different types including peanut butter and jelly, ham and cheese, bologna with tomato and cheese and turkey sandwiches.

Quick Fruit Turnovers

  • 1 pop-can croissants
  • 1 can of pie filling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T water
  • Sugar

Lightly grease the bottom of a cookie sheet. Place four of the croissants on the sheet and flatten them out just a tad more. Fill the center with the pie filling, and then cover with the other four croissants. Crimp the edges. Mix the egg and water thoroughly. Using a pastry brush, paint the top of each turnover. Cut two or three slits in the top. Sprinkle with sugar to taste. Bake as directed on the pop-can.

Allow the turnovers to cool, and then wrap each one separately or keep them all in an airtight container.

Fresh Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Debone leftover fried or baked chicken. Add it with relish, mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste. Hit the “pulse” button several times until the mixture is mixed well but not ground to a pulp. Serve on hotdog rolls to make it easier to hold while traveling.

Stop by Jim’s RV Center in Nichols, New York for any accessories or parts you may need for your upcoming trips. Be sure you have everything you need for cold weather camping and for traveling in comfort. Be sure to add a thermos of hot chocolate, coffee or tea to help keep you warm.
