Posts tagged: coleslawSay hello to the most decadent, soul-fulfilling pork sammie you will ever bite into… It’s hard for me to describe these Krispy Kreme pulled pork sammies without my mouth beginning to water. Krispy Kreme doughnuts are still my all-time favorite doughnuts. Getting one fresh off the shelf at the shop is one of my guilt pleasures.

You know when you have leftovers hanging around and you have ZERO idea what to do with them? My refrigerator is usually a mash up of random BBQ leftovers, some pasta and whatever else I happen to have leftover from last night's BBQ party. There's a limit to how many times you can eat the same dish the same way. I mean, I love my brisket, but after a couple of nights of just brisket and a side salad, I'm getting bored.
I also happen to be lazy and have no desire to actually get too terribly creative unless I know it'll take me zero extra effort. Enter these little brisket mac n cheese sliders... Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders are the new appetizer that you have absolutely no excuse not to make. Seriously, how easy are these little guys? You just throw some leftovers on a toasted bun and BAM, you have a completely new way to eat that brisket and mac n cheese that have been taking up valuable real estate in your refrigerator.
Plus, how fancy you get with this recipe is completely up to you. You can make your own smoked brisket or you can head over to Pig of the Month's shop to snag some of their oh-so tender brisket. For the mac n cheese, you can simply make these sliders with store-bought mac and cheese, or you can bust out grandma's favorite recipe to go the extra mile. Regardless, these sliders are just the right balance of meat and cheese to hit the spot with every bite. There's no going back once you've eaten these sliders, so get prepared to start craving mac n cheese on your sandwiches from here on out. Don't say I didn't warn you...

A couple of years ago, we served up a quick go-to appetizer of open-faced pulled pork sliders. We've been using this recipe ever since, but we decided it was about time to make a little update to this bad boy. Why not get on the food porn train and really blow your minds? So we broke out the waffle iron, all the cheese and piled on even more saucy pulled pork for this revisited version of an old fav.
This open-faced slider is the perfect combination of savory, spicy and sweet. Instead of being sandwiched between a bun, this pork sings with the crunchy, spicy coleslaw and the crisp waffle fry. I promise your mouth will be bursting with flavor! These sliders are the perfect opening bite to start your summer BBQ festivities with a bang. You get a little bit of everything you could ever want in each loaded bite!
Any excuse to get extra saucy at a BBQ, am I right? Happy BBQing, piggy fans!
INSTRUCTIONS: Heat up a waffle iron and grease with cooking spray. Add the shredded hash browns in batches, creating the base for your sliders. Remove once golden brown and crispy. Cut the hash brown waffle into 4 pieces. Top each piece of hash brown waffle with one slice of sharp cheddar cheese. Broil until melted. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine coleslaw, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir until coated evenly. Warm the pulled pork in the microwave and stir in more BBQ sauce as desired. Top the cheesy hash brown waffles with pork and top with coleslaw. Serve immediately.
