The Tastiest Padkos Ideas for your Holiday Roadtrip
If you’ve got a trip planned these holidays there’s a good chance it means you’ll be driving there.

We’ve put together our favourite recipes to keep tummies full and to ensure there’s a smile on every face. So while you play eye-spy for the hundredth time, snack on something delicious with our padkos ideas… it’s bound to make the trip whizz by!
Tasty Savoury Snacks

Make breakfast on the road an all-in-one affair. These cheesy bacon muffins have a whole egg baked into the centre, ideal for a quick and tasty roadside stop. Delicious, nutritious and filling

ROASTED MASALA-SPICED NUTS
Curry-spiced roasted nuts are delicious served as a snack! We topped them over bruschetta and a dollop of guac but on a road trip, the snacks are probably best alone. The perfect padkos idea.
You always need something sweet to get you to the end of the trip.
