As you may know by now, I’m a HUGE fan of grilled cheese sandwiches. And panini’s. Honestly they’re one and the same to me. Anyway, nothing makes me happier than eating a melty, cheesy sandwich filled with yummy extras. This time, I went for pulled pork grilled cheese. I was craving a pulled pork grilled cheese, but I had no intention of making the pork myself.
There’s great little spot within walking distance that makes smoked goodies and southern sides. I picked up some pulled pork, pulled chicken (for my son), sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, and onion rings, cause why not? There were four different sauces to choose from, so I grabbed Carolina, and Memphis, and headed to the house. The only cheese I had left in the house was a bit of muenster, and white cheddar. Not a problem. It was enough for three grilled cheese sandwiches.
I added the meat to a pan, tossed in the bbq sauce to coat, and made sure the meat was heated through. Then I grabbed my grill pan, slathered a little mayo (no butter please) on the outside of the whole wheat sourdough, and layered it with cheese, meat, then more cheese. I left the top slice of bread off, and covered the sandwiches open faced with a lid to cook the sandwiches slow and low. This is my preferred method, because I want to make sure that everything is warm, and the cheese is perfectly melted. When I can see the top layer of cheese soften, I top them with the other slice of bread and flip, giving them a little press, then wait for it to turn golden brown.
This pulled pork grilled cheese, like my other grilled cheese sandwiches didn’t disappoint.
