Too much pulled pork leftovers? Five Eight quick ways to use your extras

Move over Turkey, time for some great ways to use your leftover pulled pork (or roasted pork).  These are my top eight quick and easy ways to turn that delicious pulled pork into something new and exciting.

## First off, the best smoked pulled pork Recipe

You can find the best pulled pork recipe here on Dish Ditty…

#8: Top your baked potato…

For a nice lunch or light dinner, split a baked potato, add butter, pulled pork, green onions and top with cheese and sour cream. YUM!

#7: Mix it into your potato or macaroni salad

That’s right, just add it into your favorite potato or macaroni salad.  Add some Old Bay Seasoning to give it an extra boost of flavor

#6: Make a Quesadilla

Use it instead of chicken in your quesadillas.  Here’s how I make it: Spray some Pam in a skillet.  Add the tortilla and on one half put the shredded sharp cheddar cheese and the other half the shredded pork.  Cook on medium high until the cheese starts to melt.  Fold it in half (fold the cheese side on top of the pork side since the cheese is sticky and won’t move around).  Continue cooking for a minute or two, flipping it occasionally to get both sides hot and to let the tortilla get crispy.

#5: Add it to your green salad

You can add it to your standard green salad, or try adding it to our Island Dreams Salad.

#4:Cook it with your Eggs for Breakfast

One of my top ways to use leftover pulled pork. The smokiness adds a fun twist to this pasta dish.


  • 1  teaspoon olive oil
  • 1  cup cooked pork (leftover pulled or roasted)

  • .25  cup green onions (minced)
  • 1  cup Prepared Pasta Sauce (can be from jar or scratch, red or white doesn't matter)

In a medium sized skillet, heat olive oil and add carrots. Cook carrots for about 2 minutes and add in the Pork and green onions. Continue to cook for about 2 minutes for the pork to get hot. Add the pasta sauce and cook for a minute or two or until the sauce is bubbly. Toss in the pasta and cook for another minute, coating the pasta fully with the sauce. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
