BBQ Pork Cheese Fries



This recipe comes from one of our favorite indulgences at a local restaurant, BBQ Cheese Fries. When we were looking for a great alternative for using up some leftover pork, this is what happened. Sometimes the best ideas do come out of sheer necessity. Do not judge until you have tried! Serve them with a side of ketchup, sour cream, or extra barbecue sauce. Your taste buds will thank you! This recipe would also be great for parties and gatherings.

4 cups Frozen French Fries
2 cups Pulled Pork
3 Tablespoons Carolina Style BBQ Sauce
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1. Prepare your fries as directed by the package but make sure to get them extra crispy. I used a deep fryer and cooked until golden brown.
2. While the fries are cooking, place the pork and sauce in a skillet over medium low heat and cover with a lid. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Allow the meat to warm for 7-10 minutes. This step is necessary to remove extra moisture from the meat. I have tried making the recipe without doing this and they were soggy. Also, I used the Bullseye brand sauce and found it worked great.
3. Once the fries are finished cooking, remove to a paper towel and allow to drain.
4. In a glass baking dish, place the crisp fries on the bottom layer followed by the pork and then topped with the cheddar cheese, adding extra cheese if you like.
5. Place the baking dish into a 350 degree preheated oven and cook for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the dish in case your oven cooks hotter than mine, but this allows the cheese to melt and the dish to be warm throughout.
6. Remove from the oven and serve. This is a fork and knife type meal, not a finger food....these are serious fries after all!  I served mine with sour cream and ketchup options for dipping.

Poor Man's Ribs: Roasted BBQ Pork Necks

Ok, I know what you are thinking. Pork Necks???? Yes, yes...I was skeptical at first as well. However, as I read about the cut of meat, I found that it was often described as tender and rib-like. So, I decided to give it a try. The cut is much cheaper than any ribs I have been able to find. These turned out fall-off-the-bone and succulent. As my husband said, "This is the poor man's rib." So the next time you are at the store, just step back from what the cut says and just give them a try. They really are delicious! Ingredients: 1 1/2 Tablespoons Whole Grain Dijon Style Mustard 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt 1/2 teaspoon Paprika 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper 1/4 teaspoon Salt 1/8 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper 3 1/2 Pound Fresh Pork Necks 1/4 Cup Water 3 Tablespoons Sweet/Spicy BBQ Sauce 1. In a small bowl, combine the mustard and seasonings to create a flavor paste. Rub the pork necks with the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. 2. Preheat the oven

Baked Apple Sauce Donuts with Maple Glaze

On Sunday evening, I was in the mood for something sweet and delicious. As I searched through the cabinets, nothing really seemed to catch my interest. Then, I remembered I had applesauce in the refrigerator and maple flavoring in the cabinet; the perfect solution was to create an applesauce donut with all of the flavors and spice of the old fashioned applesauce cake my grandmother made during my childhood. Another great thing about these donut is the maple glaze. The flavors scream breakfast with a subtle caramel undertone. On top of everything else, these are baked, not fried. So, in the world of donut consumption, they are basically guilt free! (Do you like my rationalization there???) No worries; with one bite of these delicious cake donuts, you will forget about an resolutions you may have made. Enjoy!
