Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Pulled Pork is just a great sandwich filler.  You can make it spicy or sweet as you want. Leftovers are good for a week in the fridge and you can have sandwiches one day, throw it on top of rice for the next, make soup on the third and if there’s any left, you can add some cheddar cheese and eggs and make breakfast. Here’s an easy recipe you can start before work and finish up right when you get home.

Deep Fried Pickles

These little snacks are a great way to switch up how you normal snack on pickles.  No reason to have the same old boring pickle on the side of your plate.  Whip up a batch of these and some Peppercorn Ranch Dressing or Hooter’s Special Sauce and you got yourself a great afternoon treat.

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups whole wheat or all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 11 ounce jar hamburger dill pickle slices
  • 2 cups buttermilk
Directions:

Preheat 8 cups of vegetable oil to 350 degrees in a large pot.

Drain dill pickles in a colander and then place into a medium sized bowl with the 2 cups of buttermilk.

Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Take about a handful of the pickles out of the buttermilk and dredge into the seasoned flour.

Shake off excess flour, and place battered pickles into hot grease. Be careful not to place too many pickles into the hot grease or the pickles won’t fry up crisp.

Fry pickle slices until golden brown. Then serve with a side of Hooters Special Sauce!

Turkey Devonshire

When I worked at Armstrong’s, a little place out of Pittsburgh, I remember waking up and making 10 gallons of this cheese sauce a day.  Invented in the Steel City, this is a sandwich that was really popular with all the customers and is a great filling, comfort food that’s pretty easy to make up. It’s especially great for the few days after Thanksgiving when you have a ton of Turkey leftovers.
