Pulled Pork and Caramelized Onion Panini

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I love making a new recipe out of leftovers. Especially when I’m feeling broke (right after pay-day)! This recipe made use of everything I already had in the house. I just needed to whip up some caramelized onions first.



  1. Layer cheeses, onions, pulled pork and more cheese on one slice of bread, top with other slice of bread.
  2. Butter both outsides of the bread slices and place in a preheated Panini press or George Forman grill (or make as you would a grilled cheese sandwich, if you have neither).
  3. Remove from the Panini press when bread is golden brown and cheese has melted.  Cut in half, if desired. Serve immediately.

I’m not a huge fan of BBQ sauce and cheese, as I explained to my dad earlier this evening. As such (for me) the sandwich was good but not outstanding. The pork was still spectacular. The next time I make this recipe (and I would make it again), I would add more cheese and cut down on the pork and onions a bit. That way I could minimize the BBQ flavor and maximize the cheese! A little salt and pepper may go a long way to add flavor to this sandwich as well.
