Happy October everyone! The summer has come to an end and it’s finally my favorite season, fall. I love the crisp in the air, the sleeping with the windows opened and the warm and cozy comfort dishes.
I’ve been doing a lot of cooking just haven’t gotten the time to get the recipes down and posted. Life got in the way a little. I’ve been dealing with my dog, Coco who has some eye issues so that’s been the most important thing lately. It’s been a long last several weeks. In case you didn’t know I’m a huge dog lover. I have 2, both rescues. Peanut and Coco. I can’t say it enough, RESCUE! Please! 🙂
Ok, I got side tracked, back to the food! I have previously shared my pulled pork recipe. Take a look at that blog post to get my recipe. This is just an easy dish that is perfect for leftovers. This would also be a cool item for a potluck. All you need is to add the pulled pork (No sauce) to a crockpot, put your toppings in a bowl and everyone could make their own stuffed potatoes. I’ve only ever used sweet potatoes. It’s perfect with the tanginess of the pulled pork, but I love a good baked potato so I’m sure this would come out just as good! How cool would a stuffed potatoes bar be, am I right folks?
Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
8 oz cooked pulled pork
2 large sweet potatoes, cooked
– Favorite BBQ Sauce, to taste
1 jalapeño, sliced
1/2 small onion, diced
Assembling directions: Cut sweet potato in half, don’t go all the way to the ends, (this will help keep the goodness inside) Add in pulled pork, top the meat with BBQ sauce, sliced jalapeños and diced onion and serve.
Note: There is no end to the other toppings you could do. When I make my pulled pork sandwiches I top the pork with a creamy coleslaw (see pulled pork recipe for my coleslaw) That would be delish on top of this stuffed sweet potatoes.
