Old School Road Trip

Old School Road Trip

On the road in search of comforting classics

Sometimes when we get bored, we hop in the ol’ WIENERMOBILE and hit the open road. This time we went searching for old school comfort food traditions across the U.S.A. It turns out that “comfort” has a different meaning in South Carolina than it does in New Hampshire. (We are a United States, divided by distinct palates.) Here are just a few of our mouthwatering faves.
On the road in search of comforting classics

New Mexico:
Mean Green Chile Breakfast Burrito

When you can find a tell-your-momma-about-it dish at a gas station and it tastes just as good as a white tablecloth bistro, well, that’s comforting. Luckily, families from Alamogordo to Albuquerque all seem to know how to make this spicy wake-up call: strips of crispy traditional bacon wrapped in local goodness: shredded potatoes, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese, and a secret-weapon sauce of minced garlic, chopped onions and Hatch green chiles. We are sworn to secrecy about that gas station, but please, try this at home.

Arkansas: Fried Bologna Sandwich, Naturally

Arkansas is known as The Natural State. Not only is that the coolest state nickname we’ve found in our travels, it also extends to their lunch menus. Because it’s only natural to love this delicious creation: OSCAR MAYER Bologna, white bread, cheese and tomato, all cooked to perfection in a frying pan, spread with mustard or mayo. Thank you Arkansas, we’ll be back.
Bologna Made With Chicken & Pork

PRO TIP

Make four hash marks in the bologna when frying it up, to avoid bubbles. Make it a patriotic feast with melting Kraft Singles American Cheese slices on top. We salute you.

NYC Hot Dog: The Flavor that Never Sleeps

In a culinary world of weekly trends, the most innovative move is to stick to the classics. New York City, home of dessert bars and Michelin-star ramen joints, is also headquarters of the humbly awesome NYC dog. Boil it or grill it, put it in a bun, and load it up with spicy mustard and sauerkraut. Boom. If we want to get a little crazy, we might add a little celery salt on top. The hipsters can have their fancy umami sampling plates and endless fusions. The hot dog is New York’s real pride and joy.
