It isn’t often we find ourselves with leftover pulled pork (it's usually the first to go!). But if we do, a pulled pork grilled cheese is one of our favorite uses for it. Our trick for golden brown and delicious grilled cheese is a combination of mayonnaise and butter. A bit of BBQ rub adds an easy flavour boost. You can use any rub or spice blend you want to your butter spread. Just make sure it’s a finer grain rub as larger pieces tend to burn.
  • Preheat the griddle to medium heat for 10 minutes then squeeze about 2 tbsp of the oil onto the griddle and spread evenly with the back of a spatula.
  • Add the pulled pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 4–5 minutes; set aside.
  • Combine the butter, mayonnaise, and BBQ rub in a small mixing bowl, then spread the mixture over one side of each slice of bread.
  • Add the bread to the griddle, buttered side down. On each slice of bread place 1 slice of cheddar and one slice of Havarti.
  • Top 4 slices of bread with the pulled pork, and pickle. Cook until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown, 4–5 minutes.
  • Flip the bread without the pork onto the bread with the pork. Use a spatula or grill press to press the top of each sandwich for a few seconds. Remove the sandwich from the heat and let them rest for 2–3 minutes before serving.
