Having a healthy diet while you’re on the road can be challenging. But preparing your own food while in your truck can seem daunting! 

That’s why we love slow cooker dump meals—meals that you can prep at home ahead of time and then dump into your slow cooker when you’re on the road. Here are some of our favorite meals to try this winter season.

1. Potato Soup

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 (30 oz) bag of frozen hash-brown potatoes
  • 2 (14 oz) cans of chicken broth
  • 1 (10.75 oz) can of cream of chicken soup
  • ½ cup of onion, chopped
  • 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Whatever garnishes you love, such as green onion, cheddar cheese, and bacon

Looking to add an extra vegetable to your soup? Add some steamed broccoli. You can also add diced celery or carrots for extra flavor and nutrients.

2. Steak & Gravy

What You’ll Need:

  • 2-3 pounds of top sirloin steak or London broil sliced thin
  • 2 packets of brown gravy mix
  • 1 packet of Au Jus mix
  • 2½ cups of water

Serve over rice, pasta, or mashed potatoes.

Quick Tip: Cut up your steak while you’re still at home so you don’t have to worry about making a mess when you’re on the road.
