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.
I feel like I start a lot of my Snack Reports with, “I was in the grocery store and saw this on sale.” But that’s really how I end up finding most of the stuff I review. Some foodstuffs I hear about in advance and seek out to review, but a lot I find while just wandering around the grocery store, and if it’s on sale, I’m game for giving it a try. So…I was in the grocery store the other day and saw these blueberry English muffins on sale. Actually I saw a different Thomas’ product on sale first, but it’s going to be on sale for longer than these are, so I ended up getting them first. I had tried the limited edition apple pie English muffins a few months ago and enjoyed them, so I figured blueberry English muffins were worth a shot as well; I like both blueberries and English muffins.
Alright guys. We’ve done some zany shit involving pizzas, before. I’ll admit it. We’ve hit some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle joke-levels of wackiness with Pizza Lab. We’ve done curry pizza, chicken & waffles pizza, cheesecake pizza, and all sorts of other insane mashups. But we have once again managed to outdo ourselves with a pizza so delightfully out-there, that it actually kind of demolishes out-there and flies far, far beyond it. I present to you: Birthday Cake Pizza.
So I was born and raised here in New York. New York’s got some decent foods it calls claim to fame. Bagels, pizza, buffalo wings, etc… It’s great. But despite that, I have to admit part of me rues the fact I missed out on certain treats more exclusive to southern cooking while growing up. In particular, a few years back I became acquainted with the so-random-it’s-brilliant homestyle concoction known as chicken & waffles. Fast-forward to present day, and we’ve finally gotten around to crafting a Pizza Lab after this scrumptious classic of American recipes.
