Pulled Pork and Au Gratin Potatoes

 

I didn’t take a picture of this because it was leftovers and a recipe I made on a whim, so I had no idea how it would taste. Oh.MY. This was one of the BEST leftover creations EVER! There is a BBQ place here in town that serves a Tater Pig and it is soooo good! A baked potato topped with butter, pulled pork, and BBQ sauce. Well, we had Pulled pork leftovers and I thought it would be nice to make our own Tater Pig here at home. However, we didn’t have any potatoes to bake. I could have gone to the grocery store, but I was lazy. So I looked in the pantry and I saw a couple of boxes of Au Gratin Potatoes. I don’t use them often, mainly because I forget about them! So I thought I would use up some of the boxes in the pantry.

It was seriously soooooo good! We were shocked at how delicious it was. I am not kidding, the entire pan got eaten up. I had to stop myself from eating it. This is my new favorite way to not only eat pulled pork, but a great way to use up leftovers. Next Time, I will take a picture, but I wanted to get it written down so I wouldn’t forget this magical leftover creation!

 

Ingredients:

  • Leftover Pulled pork
  • 1-2 boxes of Au Gratin Potatoes
  • Items needed to cook the potatoes from the box

 

Directions

Bake potatoes according to box directions. Make as many boxes as you’d like, according to how many people you are going to serve or how much pork you have leftover! I used 2 and it fed the 6 of us, but we probably will do 3 next time because it was soooo good and I want some leftovers! Once the potatoes are baked, top with your leftover pulled pork. Put back in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the pork is heated through.

Eat and enjoy. Try not to eat the entire pan yourself! Mmmmmm… I am wishing we had some leftovers right now!

Ham & Cheese Hasbrown Casserole 

 

YUM! This is not the first time we’ve made this, but I forgot to blog it last time. We had leftover ham from Easter and I wanted to make this dish again because it was so good the first time. The first time we had it, my son actually made the dinner. YAY for kids making dinner! Obviously, if my son was able to make this meal, it is pretty easy to pull off!

Not only is it easy, it is really tasty. Like it is hard to stop yourself from eating it and exploding. YUM! I used a mixture of cheeses this time and it was sooo good! Cheese just makes the world so much better! I’ll probably be making this dish anytime we have leftover ham…

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (32 oz) frozen hash browns
  • 1lb cubed ham
  • 2 cans condensed soup (cream of chicken or cheddar, or potato)
  • 1 16 oz container sour cream
  • 2 cups cheese – I used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar
  • Parmesan Cheese

 

Directions:

Heat oven to 375 and grease 9×13 pan

Mix together the hash browns, ham, condensed cream of whatever you chose soup, and cheese. Pour into pan. Top with Parmesan Cheese and more cheese if you want. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until bubbly and light brown.

Brownie “Cake” with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filling & Dulce de Leche Topping

I asked my husband for a brownie cake with chocolate chip cookie dough filling from my birthday. Then I thought, let’s top it with Dulce de Leche. Then this delicious monstrosity was born.

It was SO FREAKING GOOD!

Nevermind the calories. It was worth every calorie it contained. It was my birthday, so time to splurge! YUM! So good. This may be my dessert every year for my birthday! Mmmmm….

To make this, he made my Favorite Homemade Brownie recipe. He baked them in round baking pans instead of the traditional 13×9

Then we made my Chocolate chip cookie dough recipe – only since we weren’t baking it, we simply removed the eggs and mixed in milk until the consistency was right. You can also leave out the baking soda/powder, since you don’t need it to rise! Tasted sooo good! We used mini chocolate chips too.

Then made a batch of my slow cooker Dulce de Leche

Then simply layer the “cake”

Soooo good! You’re welcome. If you’re really going ALL out, add some vanilla bean ice cream. Oh.my. Die from a diabetic coma, but sooo worth it!
