Trucker Food and Recipes
for Eating and Cooking in Your Truck
ou’re hungry and loading your truck will take hours. But the trucker food and recipes you have in your truck will let you enjoy eating and cooking what you want to eat, when you need to eat it while parked.
There’s no waiting to get to a truck stop restaurant only to eat what someone else decides to put on the menu or a buffet. Not only will you take advantage of the time on your hands, you’ll save money in the process!
We saw this scenario played out over and over again in the days when we teamed. Mike continued to see it as a solo regional driver for his trucking company when he was by himself in his truck. We have seen it together whenever Vicki has ridden with him.
Yes, the job demands that professional drivers face make it challenging to eat frugally on the road, but it’s not impossible.
This page contains an overview of ideas about food and links to recipes that you can fix in your truck. It is meant to be used in tandem with our meal preparation page.
Here is a list of Breakfast foods we have prepared in a truck:
- ham and cheese omelette;
- Vicki’s crock pot version of Amish Baked Oatmeal;
- turkey bacon and freeze dried eggs.
You can also cook hot cereals like oatmeal, grits and farina (commonly called Cream of Wheat) in a hot pot.
