BBQ Pulled Pork and Peach Grilled Cheese

BBQ Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese www.lillieeatsandtells.com

One of my favorite things to do with BBQ pulled pork leftovers!

Scale

Ingredients

  • Bolillo or pane roll (or other large sandwich roll from grocery-store bakery sliced into 3-4 thin slices –I used two of the slices that equaled 40 g)
  • 115 g instant pot bbq pork
  • 1 slice (28 g) lite havarti cheese (I get mine at Trader Joes)
  • ½ slice (10 g) lite swiss cheese (I just did this to bulk up the cheese because it’s lighter than the havarti- feel free to do all havarti! I get my lite Jarlsberg swiss at my deli counter so I can get it sliced thinner and have it cover more area for the same weight. But it’s sold at Costco and most stores.)
  • 15 g caramelized onion (I usually have these on hand but if you aren’t addicted like me and need to make them: cook thinly sliced white or yellow onion over medium/low with a pinch of kosher salt and cooking spray for 2030 minutes until super soft and tender and sweet. Keep in fridge for everything!)
  • 25 grams thinly sliced peaches (apples would be good too… or fig butter from Trader Joes)
  • 1 tbs BBQ sauce (Stubbs has good macros- or Hughes Sugar Free from Walmart)

Instructions

  1. Use (ideally) two slices from the middle of the roll
  2. Top bottom slice with cheese, pork, caramelized onion, peaches, and bbq sauce
  3. Top with other piece of bread.
  4. Spray both sides of sandwich with cooking spray and brown in a pan on medium-high heat until toasted and cheese is melty.

*I had some leftover slaw I ended up tucking in and eating with it which is great if you have some left from pulled pork sandwiches.

Notes

*If you are a macro-counter and not sure how to track a trimmed fresh sandwich roll. Search “bolillo g” in MFP to find an option in grams. Look for one you can trust from walmart or some chain.  It should be around 32 carbs for 65 g of bread. Finding “1 bolillo” could vary so much, it’s all about the weight for accuracy!
