Filling trucker meals!

Driving a truck Over the Road can be a challange on the pocket book eatting out.

I have met some great truck cooks. I remember making foil pouch simmered chicken under the hood for hours to eat latter.lol

Now a days. Our trucks have refridgerators, Microwaves and 120 volt inverters to run the crock pot or electric skillet.


Here is a meal I have made MANY times. I find it very feeling and CHEAP!

Daytraders Ramen chili Pie.

2 bowls or plates.

1 pack Ramen noodles. Any type you like (the hot and spicy or beef work great.

4 slices american processed cheese

4 slices bread

butter

1 can of store Brand chilli of your type.

A little Onion, Jalapeonoes or what ever you like in your noodles and chilli.

Grill up two grilled cheese sandwitches. IF YOU can not grill the sandwitches. That is fine. Make two cheese sandwitches and Nuke them for 15 seconds.

Place 1 grilled cheese in each bowl.

Make the ramen in the Microwave. Split between the two bowls on top of the grilled cheese.

Top with Chili, onion and Jalapenoes. Nume in the microwave to heat up just a bit.

NOW! Place one bowl in the fridge. This taste better latter.

Eat one bowl Now!

    Eat lots of pickled jalapenos and you won't get hartburn, maybe? That sounds good! I have put chili over ramen but didn't think about the grilled cheesees on bottom.

    call me dense, but do you leave the liquid in the ramen when you plate the whole thing?

    I do not. I prefer to drain the liquid off.

    I guess if folks wanted I could give my Deep fried ramen recipe.

    If you get one of these. ONLY get the BURTON Brand. The Road Pro doesn't last as long.

    The wife used to make ALL kinds of things in this. Cake, lasagna, roasted chicken, pork and roasts.

    This is a great Item. I will say USE aluminum foil to line the thing with. Its cheaper then the metal pans and makes clean up a snap. Also try the cookign bags like you would use for a chicken or small turkey.

    If I were a trucker, there is no way I would go out of my way to eat "digestive bombs" like chilli and jalapenos.

    Now, I know sometimes you'll hear that people in hot places, like India, will eat hot foods in order to cool their bodies down. But, why a trucker would eat like that is beyond me, especially when you consider that the next truck stop down the road may be 100 away.

    Well, I guess our bodys have been tempered to handle "digestive bombs" Bombs. We as truckers call it good food. You may not know this, but MOST places do not allow our trucks to there area, so we make due.

    I for example carry a full size gas grill with me. I have a 120" sleeper on my truck for my wife, dog and my self. I have a nice full size sink, 2 burner electric stove top, a microwave, Good size fridge with a freezer a BATHROOM that includes a shower. MOST are not set up as we are, but we own our truck.

    I got tired of eating were I was "allowed" to. So now we cook alot on our own. I also have found places that I am able to get close to. Take a cab or GET THE BIKES out of the back and the wife and I will ride the bikes to get a good meal.

    The old days of truck stops having good food. They are gone. You go to the rite truck stop on a weekend. You will find plenty of guys like me having a chili cook off.

    My husband drives truck,too,and daytrader106 is right about restaurants not wanting trucks in their lot.So the choices on the road are not all that great.We stock him up before he leaves-everything from chili to baked beans,sandwiches,whatever he wants that trip.Not everyone has problems with digestive bombs.
