It’s Teacher Week at Blog Hoppin and today is Make Ahead Meals. These aren’t necessarily make ahead, but I’m sharing two of our favorites for weeknights: quick, easy and even my kiddos will eat them (sometimes…)
I love making pulled pork in the crock pot…the easiest thing ever. Throw in pork roast (fill slow cooker with water to keep it from drying out), cook on low all day, then shred it when you get home. We serve it on hamburger buns the first night. I like it with barbecue sauce and the hubby likes it with hot sauce.
But wait! It gets better! The next night we use the rest of the pulled pork for the most delicious thing ever! We very creatively call this “pulled pork and fries”…I promise, even though it sounds a little weird, it’s amazing!
Cook sweet potato waffle fries on a cookie sheet (or baking stone) until they are almost done – about 20 minutes (follow package directions for temperature).
(here’s what I use)
Remove the fries from the oven and spread pulled pork over the fries. (think putting toppings on a pizza).
Next, cover the whole thing in barbecue sauce.
Sprinkle blue cheese and shredded cheddar cheese on top and bake again until the cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).
We cut it into pieces with a pizza cutter, but you could definitely just pull it apart (it’s just kind of messy!)
I’m heading over to Blog Hoppin’ to pin some yummy new week night dinners!
