    Was stumped on what to make for dinner - didn't want to make same old pulled pork sandwiches, so got a little creative.

    The fix-ins: Sweet Baby Rays Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce, chopped up a red onion, some Famous Dave's Original spicy pickles, and grated some mozzarella and sharp white cheddar cheese.


    The pork! Heated up 1 lb. of frozen vacuum sealed pulled pork I found in the back of the freezer.



    I cooked up a bag of tater-tots (cooked them extra crispy), then topped them with pulled pork, BBQ sauce, and the cheese. Then put it back in the oven under the broiler.


    After the broiler! [​IMG]



    Topped it off with a little ranch dressing, onions, and pickles!


    .... if you ain't drooling you need new taste buds!


    .... the dog trying to convince me she's underfed and needs a plate of her own.... lol


    Definitely a keeper! That came out soooo good whole family loved it!

    Thanks for looking,

    Johnny

    Totchos..... I like it, I'll have to remember that one... lol
    LOL.... were gonna be gone on vacation for a week so trying not to buy to many groceries.
    Thanks - yeah I have heard of poutine, but never had a chance to try it. Anything with gravy is bound to be good though!
    Thanks Al, I was actually wishing I had more after I finished off the plate... lol.

  10. Substitute the tater tots for tortilla chips, the mozzarella and white cheddar for yellow cheddar, and the onions & pickles for optional jalapeñoes (I didn't have them). And you get this 👆

    Yeah my goal was to go more for the flavors I would put on a pulled pork sandwich vs. the flavor of traditional nachos. Thus the BBQ sauce and pickles - it really did work quite well was like eating a cheesy open face pulled pork sandwich.

    Thanks for the idea, JIR! Those look fantastic! I make pork nachos all the time but never thought to try tater tots. I just happen to have a couple bags of PP in the freezer I just smoked last weekend. We WILL be trying this this weekend, for sure.
