Ramblin Recipes

Much as I love me some BBQ or a mustard slathered dog right off the campfire grate, time on the road means adjusting the nutritional profile somewhat if you want to stay on the road.

The good news, it can still taste very tasty.


Check out some of the meals we have in the rotation.

On The Griddle

We cook virtually everything on our Blackstone Griddle and do not own a standard grill. 
All of these recipes require a flat cooking surface and we can't recommend the Blackstone highly enough.


Grilled Spinach Salad

Grilled vegetables, chicken or fried cheese, over a bed of fresh spinach garnished with nuts, fruit and basalmic glaze


  • 2 chicken breasts or thighs or halloumi grilling cheese

  • Fresh uncooked spinach  

  • Vegetables of your choice - we use red, yellow or orange peppers, broccoli, asparagus, green beans, etc .

  • Fruit if you like this on your salad mixed with the grilled vegetables. We use blueberries, watermelon, clementines, grapes, etc.)

  • Feta or goat cheese 

  • balsamic glaze 

  • Mixed nuts

  • Salad dressing of your choice  


  1. Grill the vegetables and chicken breast on your grill, griddle or in a pan

  2. Place the fresh spinach on plates

  3. Lay the grilled vegetables over the spinach

  4. Sprinkle on the fruit and nuts

  5. Crumble on cheese of your choice

  6. Top with salad dressing. 

  7. (optional) Drizzle on a little balsamic glaze 

We use what we have on hand. So it's never exactly the same. And we often do it without chicken for vegetarian option.​ Another variation on this is with with fried grilling cheese in place of chicken and the other cheeses (shown at left).

Blackstone Pizza

Who needs a pizza oven? Spread your

dough on the griddle and get crazy.


  1. Grill meant, onions or any veggies you want cooked

  2. Slide them to the side of the griddle to stay warm

  3. Place the pizza dough onto the griddle on medium heat

  4. Flip it when it becomes lightly browned

  5. Spread tomato sauce on the pie (or brush olive oil instead for Margarita style)

  6. Sprinkle on your cheese

  7. Add onions, mushrooms, grilled veggies or meat

  8. Let the the other side of the pie brown

  9. Close lid on griddle to help cheese melt



  • Refrigerated pizza dough or a premade crust (like Bobble, but I prefer the dough)

  • Small jar/can of pizza or tomato sauce 

  • Mozzarella cheese or goat cheese

  • Veggies of your choice - we use onions, mushrooms and any other veggies we may have in the fridge  

  • Meat if you need to eat some, we usually go vegetarian with this meal but you could add some pepperoni, sausage, chicken or whatever (this is pizza, so really anything works)


Crispy Ravioli or Tortellini

Lightly crisped ravioli or tortellini with grilled vegetables and balsamic glaze


  • Refrigerated pasta- we like ravioli or tortellini filled with meat, cheese, garlic, etc.

  • Vegetables  - Get creative, broccoli, spinach, peppers, garlic, etc.

  • A good cheese to top this dish with is Feta, Parmesan or a goat cheese

  • Optional is balsamic glaze


  1. Boil the pasta according to the directions in a pan of water on your camp stove or galley

  2. While the pasta is cooking grill your vegetables

  3. When the pasta is done, drain and place on the griddle with the vegetables and mix together.

  4. Reduce heat and lightly grill the pasta until they get a light brown crust

  5. Plate everything

  6. Drizzle balsamic glaze

Blackstone Breakfast Scramble

Start the Day Right

This can be made with any, or all, the ingredients below


  • 4 - 5 Eggs

  • Diced Potatoes & Sliced Onions

  • Vegetables  - Your choice: broccoli, spinach, peppers, asparagus

  • Tortilla shell

  • Cheddar Cheese

  • Bacon or sausage (or go vegetarian)

  • Hot sauce


  1. Dice the potatoes fairly small so it won't take too long. Grill them in olive oil for 10 minutes before everything else on high.

  2. Stir regularly until lightly browned.

  3. Cook any meat (or add later if pre-cooked)

  4. Add sliced onions for another 5 - 8 minutes.

  5. Reduce heat to medium and add remaining vegetables & torn up tortilla strips

  6. When everything is nicely grilled reduce heat to low, add eggs and scramble. (grill toast on side at this point if desired)

  7. Melt cheddar on top of eggs and serve with hot sauce and seasoning
