We have done the crockpot thing once and we really need to do it again. It is a great way to make a meal. I am going to sort of hijack my own thread and post these links my wife found.. There were some pretty darned yummy looking camp recipes here.

I do the majority of the cooking while camping and I have to say that I have used my oven less than 10 X's. The few times I did was for similar ideas like cookies, biscuits, cinnamon rolls or heating of some frozen products. The DW uses it a more than me.

I did once make a lasagna which came out pretty good. It gets too hot in the summer, even the pilot light throws too much heat for my liking. Grill, Dutch oven, Coleman propane crock pot and camp chef pizza oven are my tools of choice when it comes to food.

Everyone seems to have a different breakfast choice besides pancakes in my family so I am usually simple at that time of day, but I would google a sheet pan french toast caserole for anyone who wants to warm up the unit on a cold morning while a pot is brewing. It's easy to make and the best part is no clean up if you get a half sheet disposable pan. Same for lasagna.

Also if you want to keep weight down a 1/4 sheet pan upside down centered works the same for heat deflection as the stones. Rest it right on the deflection tray in the oven just above the burner. No more burnt cookie bottoms.

I'm gonna have to try that at home. Burnt cookie bottoms are a pet peeve of mine.

We use our RV oven just like we do the oven at home. Except it is smaller, I really can't tell much difference. I cook a Prime Rib in our RV oven every Xmas and it comes out just as good as if I had cooked it at home.

I agree!
And I totally disagree with the statement that propane is cheaper. I cut my own wood. I have to buy propane.

Unfortunately a lot of us live in places where transporting wood is a no-no. Can't move it more than 25 miles in WI. I used to bring a lot of my wood from home before the bans. However in most places we go, there is usually someone selling wood at the side of the road far cheaper than the campground sells it. The cost of a fire is just part of the trip for us, like the cost of gas. It is what it is.

We specifically looked for a unit with an oven. Our old motor home had one and it's great for garlic bread on pasta night, apple turnovers for a warm snack on a cooler day and pizza, lasagna, or casseroles are a great pre-make at home then cook in the oven with minimal dishes to do after dinner. My wife appreciates that as I cook and she cleans up.
We do a lot of outdoor cooking over the fire; burgers, smokies, kabobs, fresh trout and such too but around here it tends to get dry and there are fire bans through much of the camping season. That's when the bbq gets a workout.
Our TT is the first time we've had a microwave but we mostly boondock it so firing up the genny to heat a cup of coffee seems a little over the top. Once the carafe is empty from the morning pot I have to find other beverages or make another pot o' Joe.

Using the inside oven I experimented on this weekend's boondock to the beach - baked scones and they were good. Used parchment paper but had to cook them a bit longer than planned to get them overall golden, then the bottom got a bit too brown (easily cut-off). Would do again ...

Follows is a great recipe for your RV oven
Breakfast Casserole: Serves 8
One dozen eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 - 16oz package/roll of refrigerated flaky biscuit dough (e.g., Pillsbury flaky biscuit roll) cut into quarters
1-1/2 cup grated cheese (sharp cheddar)
4 sliced green onions
6-8 slices of bacon cooked/drained in 1" pieces (sausages also work well)
You may wish to add additional items (e.g., chopped chilies, mushrooms)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2) Beat eggs and milk
3) Fold in the rest of the ingredients (make sure the biscuit pieces are coated)
4) Pour into a lightly-greased 9x12 casserole
5) Bake for 25-30 minutes
