Sandwich Spreads You Can Take On Your Road Trip

Travel deliciously with these easy sandwich spreads.

One of the best road trip foods you can have is sandwiches. You can eat it while you’re walking, in a moving car, or at a picnic. You also get bold, strong flavors that are great either hot or cold.

When you make any of these spreads for your road trip, you can prep them to make into sandwiches in their own neat bags, or you can just bring the whole jar and a load of bread. It’s so fuss-free.

Whether you love your sandwiches cheesy, savory, or sweet, there’s a recipe that’s perfect for you.

2 Garlic Cream Cheese and Mushroom Spread Recipe

This garlicky dip is extremely perfect for traveling. The longer the garlic mingles with cream cheese before it’s served, the deeper, the brighter, and the spicier your dip becomes. The mushroom’s umami then balances those flavors into a smooth tasting spread.
