Road Trip Fuel
Is there anything more Canadian than stopping at Tim Horton's before embarking on a road trip? Whether it's a short trip to work or a longer haul to a cottage with your friends for the weekend, the Tim Hortons stop is a quintessential part of the ritual of the drive.
On a recent long weekend adventure, our first stop was of course to get some human road trip fuel—the Tim Horton's breakfast sandwich.
I feel like this kind of thing just tastes better in the front seat of a car—tunes up, sunglasses on, windows down.
I'm a fan of the bacon, egg, and cheese on an English muffin personally (although this version is with the biscuit which is equally as delicious). The combo. Always with an extra hashbrown. Because, potatoes.
There's something about the meltiness of that American cheese—or cheese-like substance. The egg patty. The saltiness of the bacon. The hashbrown that might have been crispy at one point but is now sort of soft and a little soggy.
It might be the human fuel equivalent of regular gasoline in your car, but goddamn if it doesn't do the trick. Not fancy. Serviceable. Perfectly passable. A road trip tradition wrapped in an easy-to-fold paper package.
