Sandwiches inspired by your favorite road trip songs



road trip

Summer means road trips and road trips means great music and food, of course! There’s no doubt that the two things we look forward to on a long drive is the playlist you’ve been waiting to sing along to and the delicious sandwich you made for the journey. So we’ve decided to pair up a sandwich recipe for the top five summer road trip songs. Seat belts on, please.

“Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen. This all-American song calls for an all-American sub. A white bread sub roll, turkey, ham, salami and a family of cheeses, veggies and condiments. It’s an American dream of a sandwich.

“Slow Ride” by Foghat – A slow ride means a slow-cooker pulled jerk pork sandwich. You’ll want to make this recipe a day before you hit the road. Although it takes some time, the majority of the recipe is waiting for the slow-cooker to do its thing (the beauty of a slow-cooker). This gives you some free time for that last minute packing.

“Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd – These Alabama-style chicken sandwiches are the perfect pairing to this popular road trip tune, especially if you’re heading down south. With a rich history and an even richer taste, this hickory-smoked, tangy sandwich is the perfect pick-me-up for those long hours on the road.

“Little Red Corvette” by Prince – Of course a sandwich inspired by this song needs sriracha. Try this spicy chicken sandwich with a sriracha-cilantro mayo on your next road trip. The spicy spread paired with a deliciously soft Costanzo’s roll will keep you fueled for the hours ahead.
