Easy trucking recipes for me are cans of beans with garlic, vinegar and hot sauce, tuna with garlic, fiber cereal one cereal with cinnamon but I know most people would laugh or vomit thinking of that as their meals. Even I stray from that healthy model from time to time with other food.
Jennifer was so kind as to share some easy recipes that she prepares for Keith.
Feel free to share your easy recipes too at the bottom and check out Jennifer's e-book she is working on with more recipes. If yours is good enough she may include it in the easy recipes e-book with your permission.
Easy Trucking Recipes
With many requests, we have finally done it!
Welcome to the Recipe Page ;)
The intention of this page is for all of us to share our recipes! What do you send on the road with your driver? Or what do you as the driver make before hitting the road?
Most all of the recipes are going to require an oven or microwave, and a way to keep it cool. For My Husband and I, we use a cooler. I Freeze G2, and it lasts almost all week. He usually only needs to buy 2 bags of ice a week. If you have a fridge (or more importantly, somewhere to put it, that is perfect as well)
Please submit your recipes below. We will all be able to try them, rate them, and post comments on them.
I have many idea’s myself, and look forward to hearing back from everyone.
Tell us, how did the recipes keep? How well did you like it? Could it use anything else?
Formats for Recipes should be as follows (example and edible one at that)
Ingredients;1-16 pk of shredded cheddar or mex mix
2-10 pk’s of chimychonga burrito’s
2-10 ounce cans of beanless chili (or the equivalent amounts of home made chili)
Other things needed:
Not necessary, as this will be cooked in mini oven on the road.
Cut 20 -5 inch length pieces of aluminum foil (enough to cover the burrito, cheese, and chili), place 1 chimychonga burrito in each piece. Spread 4 generous tablespoons of chili onto each burrito, then spread a nice layer of shredded cheese on top of burrito.
Wrap burrito mixture in foil, place in freezer baggies, and refreeze.
Heat in oven until hot- about 45 minutes, depends on oven.
Servings = 10-20
Burrito’s = 5.00
Cost per meal = 1.60
Please remember to include all this information. This gives us all a great idea on how to save money while on the road.
I do hope you enjoy this page, as that is what it is meant for. Have fun ;)
