This Combination May Sound Strange, But It Is Delicious!

Pulled pork and mac and cheese.  I mean, I know it sounds weird, but it is absolutely delicious, especially when the pulled pork has a ton of BBQ sauce lathered all over it.  It is creamy and cheesy, as most mac and cheeses are, but then it also has this amazing tang from the BBQ sauce that really just puts it over the top.  I love recreating this dish in so many different ways, and it’s always just as delicious.

One of my favorites is by adding some grilled onions into the BBQ pulled pork. That just makes it amazing! Check out what our friends over at Slow Cooker Gourmet had to say about this:

“Two of the world’s best foods mashed together into one truly amazing dinner.  My famous slow cooker pulled pork is for more than just sandwiches.  Make up a big batch, freeze and save for later.  Then you can easily make homemade mac & cheese.  Any time and even on a weeknight.  Your family/friends/kids will love you for this one.”

Not only will they love you for this one, they will thank you, too! It is just that good!
