My Favorite Road Trip Snack

I always enjoy hearing from you and answering your questions. Today's post is addressing the always popular topic of road trip snacks.



Trail mix...

Beef Jerky...

Bubble Yum (with the mandatory bubble-blowing contest)...

Where do I start?

How about I introduce you to one of my favorites? Two words...HAM & CHEESE! Yes, readers...these will make your miles so much more merry (and they're super easy)!

I hope you'll add them to your list of future road trip staples and keep those questions comin'!

1 can crescent rolls
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon mayonnaise 
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 can chopped green chiles
Slices of cooked ham
1 tablespoon flour

Preheat oven at 375 degrees.

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface. I recruit help, Little Man is a maniac with a rolling pin...and a sack of flour!

Place ham slices on dough.

In medium mixing bowl, add cheese, mayo, green chiles, and salt. Mix until combined.

Spread evenly over ham slices.

Start along edge and roll horizontally until long tube forms. Pinch ends together to prevent your goodies from oozing out (weird sentence alert).

Once rolled, slice 1 1/2 inch thick with sharp knife.

Recruit little hands to assist in placing rolls on foil-lined baking sheet. Believe me, you'll want to line the pan. The cheesy goodness on the inside tends to become cheesy crispiness on the outside.

Bake in oven for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. 

These are also excellent for school lunches, parties (Hello, Super Bowl), and no special reason at all! I give you permission to make them "just because". Enjoy!


Thank you for your comments, I enjoy hearing from you!
