Pulled pork grilled cheese. (You just changed your plans for what you’re doing this weekend at the mere mention of this sandwich, didn’t you? That’s okay. Happened to us, too.)
Pulled pork grilled cheese is ridiculously easy to make, kid-friendly, crazily delicious, and a marvelous way to use up extra pulled pork leftover from that barbecue. Though if we’re being honest, we’d happily smoke a batch of pulled pork just to make this sandwich.–Angie Zoobkoff
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THIS DIVINE PULLED PORK GRILLED CHEESE RECIPE
When this pulled pork grilled cheese recipe was concocted by a Southern barbecue joint, they had the kids’ menu in mind, although every single adult we know who’s tried this sandwich wouldn’t kick it out of bed. If the adult in you hesitates, feel free to gussy it up with a cheese that doesn’t come in shrink-wrapped slices. And bear in mind there are many, many takes on pulled pork and each will lend an exquisitely different character to your pulled pork grilled cheese. Consider it a sandwich adventure. Sorta like those choose-your-own-adventure books.
