Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese


Do you ever have one of those days where you can’t decide what you want to eat? Do I have a grill cheese or pulled pork Sammie? Well today was one of the days where I said to heck with it. I am going to do both.

Now, I made a homemade coffee rub pulled pork that was just so tender and moist and… amazing. That’s right, amazing. We all need a pat on the back sometimes. Anyways, there was some leftovers. I asked the kids if they wanted to have some pulled pork and being kids they said in unison “we don’t want leftovers”. I am 99.9% sure every parent alive has heard that at least 100 times. So, I told the boy, the girl and the younger boy to eat cereal then. Once again in unison “yeah”. So after a 3 minute argument about what I said they could eat (obviously they didn’t record me saying that so there was no proof), I sent them off so that I could come up with something to feed those kids. Hence, the pulled pork grill cheese Sammie. Now this recipe will feed four adults or one teenage boy.

Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese


  • Ingredients: 
  • · 4 cups of leftover pulled pork tell the kids it’s fresh. They will never know
  • · 2 slices of bread I really like Texas toast for this
  • · 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • · Mayonnaise
  • · S&P to taste Salt and Pepper


  1. Directions:
  2. 1. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat
  3. 2. Place approximately 1 cup of pulled pork on a slice of Texas toast
  4. 3. Top with a slice of cheddar cheese and place the other piece of bread on top
  5. 4. Coat the slice with good quality mayonnaise and place in the pan mayonnaise side down
  6. 5. Now coat the top slice with mayonnaise
  7. 6. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until a beautiful golden crust has appeared and the cheese has melted
  8. 7. Remove from the pan and serve to teenagers that now what to eat leftovers

Using mayo instead of butter just gives it a better flavor and color. Once I learned about this trick, I have never used butter on any grill cheese. As always, live, laugh, love & learn.
