We love a good BBQ!

I’ve discussed this before, but I’m saying it again – I LOVE bbq sauce! My mom makes a mean pulled pork. It’s usually one of our favorites during the summer time, but in my opinion, it should be eaten all year long! That’s why I wanted to share this unique twist on pulled pork with you today.

These loaded pulled pork cups were a big hit with everyone who tried them! Something about the crunch of the hash browns filled with juicy pork made them irresistible.

The original recipe called for bacon bits on the top, but we thought it was perfect without. We think they’d be a hit at a Super Bowl party or even a barbecue.

Hashbrown cups for loaded pulled pork cups


  • Add bacon crumbles.
  • Make it spicier by using a spicy BBQ sauce.
  • Line the muffin pan with silicone liners. The hash brown cups pop right out of them and you can wash and reuse the liners for another dish.
  • We have a great Pulled Pork Recipe that tastes great paired with these cups.
  • Use Pulled Chicken or BBQ Shredded Beef.

To FREEZE: Cook, shred, and pack the pork in an airtight freezer safe bag for up to 3 months. You can let it thaw overnight and then reheat it in the microwave or covered in the oven if you are reheating larger servings.

Make ahead of time: Form the hash browns into cups and keep them covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
