Barbecue Pulled Pork Crackers make a perfect summertime appetizer or snack!
I have been a bit more than obsessed with pulled pork stuffed sweet potatoes lately. I thought it would be fun, and completely appropriate for summer, to turn that yummy flavor combination into a quick, easy recipe for an appetizer or snack.
Honestly, guys, this is how almost all of my recipes begin. I take some random food I love, and transform it so I can enjoy it even more often. Hopefully you all love these Barbecue Pulled Pork Crackers as well!
The only dilemma I faced when I first decided I wanted to create this recipe was how I was going to incorporate the sweet potato. That problem was easily solved when I discovered Breton Artisanal Sweet Potato and Ancient Grain Crackers. These crackers serve as the perfect base for the barbecue pulled pork and toppings, as well as provide the sweet potato flavor I most definitely had to have!
This is a really great recipe to make for snacks when you have leftover barbecue pulled pork, or you can buy a tub of pre-made pulled pork from the grocery store. If you are going to be serving these at a party, you can easily make a larger amount by using my favorite method – the slow cooker! All you need is pork and any bottled barbecue sauce you like (if you don’t make your own, of course!).
Barbecue Pulled Pork Crackers
If you are going to be making your barbecue pulled pork yourself, you will need to have that completely cooked and ready to serve before assembling these crackers. You will also want to shred the cheese, if necessary.
These crackers are super quick to make and even quicker to disappear!
Place your crackers on a plate or serving tray.
Top each cracker with 1 Tablespoon of the pulled pork.
Sprinkle on some shredded cheddar cheese.
Top with a garnish of thyme.
I always like to place crackers like this on a simple serving tray. If I am using this recipe for a larger party where guests will be eating for a longer period of time, I do things a bit differently. I will leave the pork in the slow cooker on warm and have the crackers, cheese, and thyme available for them to assemble themselves.
