Pulled pork grilled cheese


Feast your eyes on this bad boy. Yep, that’s a whole lot of porky, cheesy goodness going on between those two slices of bread. And it is gooood.

Pulled pork grilled cheese

And I suppose you guys are thinking, “is that ANOTHER sandwich she is posting? Seriously?” Yes. This is another sandwich. And yes, it turns out my life now revolves around which sandwich I will be eating next (and also, using up ALL the leftovers), but you know what? I don’t even care. Because when the sandwich is this good, zero f*cks are given. You see, pork and cheese is a magical combination. Just think of smoky, salty bacon paired with melting brie. Or prosciutto served with a milky slice of buffalo mozzarella. But then you add a little sweetness like the caramelised onions you serve with the bacon and brie or the wedge of melon accompanying the prosciutto and mozzarella and you have perfection.

Barbecue sauce

That’s why when I had some pulled pork leftover a few weeks ago, I decided to pair it with a little mature cheddar and sliced mozzarella and shove all of that in between two slices of ciabatta. Slather it in butter, toast it in a pan and then experience euphoria. When you take your first bite, you will bite through a layer of crunchy, butter bread. Then you’ll get that mouthwatering smoky sweetness of the pulled pork and finally the sharpness of the cheddar and the creaminess of the mozzarella. I am pretty much drooling on my keyboard just typing this. It’s the type of sandwich you will randomly crave before feeling bummed out that you can’t eat it right.now. And it’s so good that I now don’t wait for the pulled pork leftovers, I make a batch of pulled pork just so I can make this sandwich. And I won’t judge you if you do the same, in fact, I’ll judge you if you don’t.
