Quick Recipe: Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

Pulled pork is delicious, and definitely worth the wait of it cooking in the slow cooker, but unless you’re cooking for a crowd, you’ll probably have leftover.  I’ve already made a burrito to use up leftover pulled pork.  But one way of using up leftovers is not enough!  Thus, pulled pork grilled cheese was born.  Now as I believe I’ve mentioned before, I normally don’t include meat in my grilled cheese sandwiches.  If you start loading it up with too much stuff it loses its distinction as grilled cheese and becomes just a sandwich.  I made an exception this time for two reasons.  One, there was pretty much just the perfect amount of the pork left for a grilled cheese sized sandwich and two, there’s still twice as much cheese as pork.  Also I was kind of inspired by a pulled pork sandwich I had in a restaurant recently that was topped with a cheese sauce.

Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

  • 2 slices bread of choice
  • 1 tbsp softened butter, divided
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup pulled pork

Butter the outsides of your bread.  Place first slice butter side down on a hot griddle.  Put half of the cheese on top of the bread, then the pulled pork, and then top with the remaining cheese.  Cover with second bread slice, butter-side up.  Once cheese begins to melt, carefully flip the sandwich and cook until cheese is totally melted and bread is golden brown.  Eat and enjoy!
