It's easy to make, kid-friendly, crazy delicious, and a great way to use leftover pulled pork from a barbeque. Don't be afraid to gussy it up with a cheese that doesn't come in shrink-wrapped slices. Consider it a sandwich adventure.

Can This Be Made Ahead Of Time

The sandwiches are perfect for tailgating, but you can start with your pork that has already been smoked if you don't wish to set up your smoker the night before. If you don't mind smoking yourself, you can pick one up from your favorite joint a few days in advance. From there, simply place your skillet on the grill and start cooking.

What Cut of Meat For Pulled Pork

Pork shoulder (pork butt) or pork leg (pork leg) are both excellent for making pulled pork. You want to use a cut of pork that is easy to shred and has a good ratio of meat to fat, so the meat stays juicy without becoming too greasy.

What Kind Of Bread For Grilled Cheese

A grilled cheese sandwich can be made with almost any bread, as long as it toasts well and is sturdy enough to hold the filling. A white sandwich bread, a sourdough, a country loaf, or a boule all work well.

    The pockets should be filled half with cheese and the rest with pulled pork and pan sauce.

    Mayonnaise should be spread on both sides of the sandwich.

    Sear one side of the sandwich in butter on a griddle or cast iron pan over medium heat.

    Once golden brown, flip the sandwich and add the cheese.
