Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

This one was a riff off a post I'd seen on FaceSmash.  That website has to be good for something, right?  I didn't get many photos of these but hopefully the ones I did get will work for y'all.  

Pretty simple.  I grated several cups of cheddar and Gruyere cheese.  Then I added sliced onions - mix of scallions, Vidalia, and red onion, and about four cloves of garlic (for four sandwiches).  We had fresh sourdough and a rosemary-olive-oil bread to make the sandwiches.  

I buttered both sides of the bread (on the *inside* - yes, that is the recipe) then put down a heap of the cheese/onion/garlic mixture.  Then I added a solid heap of leftover pulled pork from the BGE, because that's just the way we roll in the Cackalacky.

I used a thin coating of mayo on the outside of the bread to keep them from burning.  Toasted about 4 min each side until the cheese was melted.  A couple of shots:





Plus the adult beverage:



These were a big hit. The sourdough/Gruyere/garlic/pork combo is a heavenly explosion in your mouth.  Thanks for looking!

    Hard to beat a good grilled cheese sandwich.

    That looks like a really good grilled cheese sandwich.

    Do you mince or microplane the garlic?

    Just minced it.  I've lost too many fingertips to the microplaner, to the point that I sometimes have yroubkle typing.

    Man those look good.  I have done a variation of these a few times and they really hit the spot.  They are a good option if you find you are out of buns, but have sliced bread, and you need to get your sammich on.


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Yep.  I think an interesting twist on these would be to cold smoke the cheese first, and then maybe sear them in the CI on the Egg.  Just to add a bit more smoke to the overall flavor profile.

    I've been known to boil water on the Egg (yes you can do that) from time to time.

    Thanks fellas!

    I forgot to mention that I put some Carolina Sweet bbq sauce on top of the pulled pork before the top slice went on.  Adds just a bit of sweetness to the flavor profile.
