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!
