    We are going on a rally soon (not with Motorhome Fun!) and there is an American supper
    scheduled. I suspect everyone fetches something to eat -- is this correct and if so, has anyone any suggestions or recipes that are likely to be popular? Please bear in mind that my cooking skills are not brilliant and I cannot get the hang of using the gas oven in the motorhome!:RollEyes:

    Yes, you're right! Everyone brings a plate of food - but only enough to feed yourself and whoever is with you. If everyone brings enough to feed the whole party, there will be mega amounts of food left over.

    A small plate of sandwiches is as good as anything.

    My favourite is onions, peppers, garlic, tinned tomatoes, chilli flakes (if liked) cooked down in a pan. Drop a block of feta cheese into the middle and warm through until it is melting.

    Yummy with crusty bread!

    NOT sausage rolls :Rofl1: You normally end up with tons.

    When we go to one we normally do a mixed platter of cakes , buns , fruit slices etc .
    Or a hot platter of potato wedges onion bargies and mini quiche .
    Theres usually loads of savoury not much sweet though.

    It depends who we go out with. You get used to what gets put on offer:RollEyes: Sometimes the spread is fab. Sometimes you think mmmm maybe not , especially if its hand made by grubby fingers :Rofl1:
    One group we used to go with were tight . Very poor table spread. There was a family of 6 ( with big kids not todlers ) who brought 1 pack of sausage rolls.
    Then piled up their plates and went back for seconds.:Eek!:
    Infact that particular episode made the group tell everyone that the general rule with an American supper or Jacobs table , was to provide enough food for your own family ( what you would normally eat ) and a little extra.
    I sometimes make one of my home made meat and potato pies , and proper mushy peas. That goes down very well. A friend of ours does a mean paella mmmm , Like i say it depends on the rally group , what i do :Wink:

    Barbequed ribs, not too much meat so easy to cook in a pan on the hob or in the oven.
    I always boil mine for about 10/15 minutes in salted water with a dash of vinegar then knock up a sauce with some wine vinegar, garlic, mustard, ketchup or tomato puree etc, or get a couple of packets from a supermarket for the sauce then finish on the hob or oven till they are nice and sticky :thumb: yum

    :thumb::thumb::Thanks everyone for some great ideas. My Other Half is drooling at the mention of homemade meat & potato pie with mushy peas but I will stick to what I CAN do really well -- brownies and refridgerator cake.
    We always seem to be in a different part of the country from Motorhome rallies but hopefully we will see you on one soon Jim.

    an American supper.....

    you want all the things that make americans obese.

    burgers, hash browns, hotdogs, corn dogs, weaners, waldorf salad, pasta salad (both with full fat mayo), peanut butter and jelly sandwiched, corn cobs, chuck steaks, rack of ribs and fries.
    brownies, Jello, blueberry pie and ice cream to finish.

    Have to say as long as I have eggs - I usually do a giant Spanish omelette and lob in whatever I think in addition to the onion, garlic (optional) and spuds - parboil spuds, chop up then fry with onions, then chuck in at least 6 eggs beaten with a splash of water, and seasoned with salt &pepper + crushed garlic if used - but you can add whatever you happen to have at this stage - cooked peas, prawns, bit of left over ham or any roasted meat - just nothing 'wet' (eg tomatoes) Number of eggs depends how big your frying pan is - but make sure you have summat ready you can turn it out on because that's the only remotely slightly tricky bit, if there is one. Doubled up foil laid on the worksurface or a tray or the draining board will do it if no plates large enough.

    Should be at least half an inch thick, cook till brown one side and getting on for set on the top side then slide onto a plate, another plate on top, invert and slide back into frying pan to finish cooking and brown t'other side. Doesn't matter if any of the veg catches a bit, adds to the flavour.

    Eat hot or cold, cut into as many slices as you think looks sensible. And then can be piled up on a much smaller plate to stick on the table.

    There's never ANY left. So make sure you snaffle yours first!

    The other option is to make the food at home before you go like curry and rice. And if you have room, to freeze it :BigGrin:
