List: Chrysalis' 5 Favorite Tour Meals
Chrysalis will be embarking on a trek across North America this month. The tour will kick off on February 12 in Fullerton, C.A. and will conclude on March 4 in Idaho Falls, I.D. The full itinerary is available here. With the tour approaching, the band have shared their favorite road meals below!
"When you're on tour, eating often involves a lot of cheap gas station and truck stop food (see Chef Yessi's recommendations and crash course regarding this cuisine type)," explained the band. "We used to tour in a van and couldn't afford hotels so there was no way we could ever cook for ourselves. The only time we'd get a home cooked meal is when friends, family or fans would let us crash at their houses and cook for us! Fortunately, we were able to upgrade to an RV just recently that has a built in kitchen. Now when we get a day off we're able hit the grocery store and cook a quality meal ourselves every once in a while. These are some of our favorite recipes."
1. PEPPER JACK GRILLED CHEESE WITH MUSHROOMS (Billy Norris – Drums)
Two Slices of Bread
Four Slices of Pepper Jack Cheese
1 stick of Butter
Heat a pan over the stove with some butter. Throw your mushrooms into the pan and let cook until they soften and shrink. Remove the mushrooms from the pan. Generously butter one side of each of your bread slices. Put together your sandwich with using your bread, cooked mushrooms, and pepper jack cheese. Make sure the buttered sides of your bread are on the outside. Cook the sandwich in your pan on medium heat until each side is golden brown and the cheese starts to melt. Place your sandwich on a plate with some chips of your liking. Add a piece of fruit to make sure you're getting something healthy in your diet. IPA beer optional, but highly recommended. Mangiare!
