Meat Lovers Pizza Roll Ups
Meat Lovers Pizza Roll Ups are a meat lover's dream! Packed with three different Pig of the Month BBQ meats, you will be in BBQ pizza heaven with every bite.
I have a serious obsession with BBQ pizza as soon as the warmer weather comes around. Aside from grilling everything and anything in sight, I'm all about the easy appetizers or snacks that I can munch on (or turn into a whole meal) while I messing with whatever I have going on the grill. These meat lovers pizza roll ups are my favorite solution for something summer and BBQ-packed that doesn't require me whipping out the grill - or something that doesn't take up that valuable real estate, you know?
Whether you are making these as a snack or appetizer for a party, or turning these into a fun weeknight BBQ meal for the family, you won't find a more meaty recipe out there that's this easy.
All you have to do is roll out some dough, stuff it with meat, bake and top with cheese. Just don't forget the extra BBQ sauce to serve them up with!
Sling me a beer and lets cheers to those tasty, juicy meats![vimeo 166821716 w=640 h=360]Meat Lovers Pizza Roll Ups from Pig of the Month BBQ on Vimeo.

What to Eat AFTER Drinking All Night on St. Patrick’s Day
With St. Patrick’s Day coming up tomorrow, you all know what that means. It’s time to down some serious Jameson and green beer. Yesterday we told you all about how to try to avoid a hangover before you go out on an epic all-night drinking fest, but what about when you’re drunk, on your way home from the bars and feeling the starvation that drinking inevitably brings? You probably already have your very own hangover remedy (mine is a massive glass of water and ibuprofen the moment I wake up at 5am - my body hates me apparently too much to sleep in until 10am), but when you’re five sheets to the wind and on your way down… Well not everyone knows that you should be avoiding that greasy fast food like the freaking plague. Unless you like waking up feeling like hell and saturated with grossness.
Hunger always strikes when you’re out on the town and drunk as hell so you need something to get you along til morning when you wake up - hopefully without a hangover. Here’s the magical rundown of what to eat after drinking all night on St. Patrick's Day: - Miso Soup - yes, it’s a little weird and random, but miso soup actually rehydrates you. Plus it’s light enough to digest quick and can ward off those crazy hellish stomach pains the following morning - not to mention other, ahem, indigestion issues. - Lean meats - yes I know, you want that pizza and mozzarella sticks, but just say NO. Those won’t help you out as much as some lean protein like grilled chicken will to keep you from feeling nauseous. - French fries - not sold on the first two options? Fine, you can hit the fast food but stick with just the fries. Potatoes have potassium and sodium to help you balance out the crap that you just put into your body. It’ll also force you to drink more water! - Eggs - just like when you have a hangover, eggs can help before the hangover even starts. Eggs break down the toxins booze puts into your system that gives you that nasty hangover in the first place. - Water, all the water - Drink. Water. Can’t emphasize this enough. Water, especially coconut water, will get your head right. If you are really dedicated to not feeling pain, add a pinch of salt so it makes you pee less (thanks #science). Pop a multivitamin and then hit the hay folks.

Green Fries (aka Crispy Baked Avocado Fries)
You know that moment when you get those late night craving for something crunchy and spicy, but your waistline screams at you, "for the love of God woman, don't eat yet another serving of fries!" It's one that us foodies know all too well. That's EXACTLY why I had to create a healthy, crunchy snack to help you with those late night cravings, so you can make more room for bacon at breakfast in the morning.
Green Fries (aka Crispy Baked Avocado Fries) are the best way to get your healthy snacking on without feeling like you're a rabbit. Munching on carrots and celery with ranch dressing gets old pretty fast, you know? Not only are these fries tasty and easy to make, they are served with a Chipotle Dipping Sauce that'll knock your socks off. If you are eating anything this weekend, it should be these fries because they are crispy perfection PLUS all those healthy fats and protein in avocado is proven to help you avoid a hangover. Win-win-win, baby. Happy snacking! [vimeo 161647570 w=500 h=281]Crispy Baked Avocado Fries from Pig of the Month BBQ.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add flour to one bowl, beaten eggs to a second bowl and combine the breadcrumbs, cayenne, salt and pepper for the fries in a third bowl. Dredge the avocado slices in the flour, then the beaten egg, and finally the spiced breadcrumbs. Lay in an even layer on a greased, rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until the fries are golden and crispy. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Serve with the fries, fresh from the oven. Now just pair these Green Fries with a big ol' cocktail or beer and you'll have the healthy balance you've always dreamed of! Recipe, video & photos by Meghan Bassett
Open-Faced Pulled Pork Sliders (Revisted)
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.

Bacon-Wrapped Onion Rings
Boring old fried onion rings are sooooooo yesterday. No one needs all that greasy breading. Instead, you need all that greasy, crispy BACON. These bacon-wrapped onion rings are the only way you should be eating your onion rings from now on. Everything is better with bacon, you all know that! These onion rings might look a little intimidating to make, but they are so much easier than dragging out the fryer and going through the batter process normal onion rings require. Instead just wrap these bad boys up and bake until they are crispy and delicious. No possible oil burns and no risk of a grease fire. Which for someone as clumsy as myself is a serious MUST.
The hint of BBQ sauce and smoky flavor of the bacon give new life to onion rings that is downright addictive. Trust me when I say you won't regret diving into a bowl of these savory rings of bacon-wrapped onion rings (aka serious deliciousness) for a second; and if you do, hand them over, I'll finish off the rest for you.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line with foil and place rack on baking sheet.
Brush the onion rings with BBQ sauce, then carefully wrap in bacon. Start by wrapping one end of a bacon slice snuggly around the onion ring so it just slightly overlaps itself. You’ll use about 1 1/2 to 2 slices of bacon per onion ring.
Place the wrapped onion rings bacon-end side down on the rack and bake for 20 minutes. Flip the onion rings and bake another 15 to 20 minutes. Finish the onion rings with a few minutes under the broil if you like crispier bacon. Remove from oven and rest at least 5 minutes. Serve with more BBQ sauce if desired.
