One of the best parts of a summer road trip is stopping at an out-of-the-way diner and ordering all your favourites. From old-fashioned root beer floats, to homemade pies and juicy burgers with hand-cut fries, it’s a nostalgia-filled visit you anticipate every year. But — in case you’re not hitting the road this year — you can capture the fun of a diner-stop at home with this menu.
From homemade cream soda to ginger-ale and rhubarb pop, we’ve got a recipe for you. Bonus: Turn your homemade soda into a float by topping it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Whether you go for slim or thick-cut, these fries add a lot of flavour to your plate with a hit of green onion and jalapenos. Prefer them plain? Skip the extras and dip them in our homemade ketchup.
Lemon meringue pie
A big slice of pie is the only way to end this meal. We’re partial to lemon meringue, but a warm slice of apple pie a la mode works too.
