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.

    Have monthly get together with family and each family group brings a part of a menu. This month I am in charge of appetizers and this one seems like a great one. Can’t wait to try it. I gave it 5 stars before trying because each of your recipes I have tried have all been GREAT so assuming this will be just as good and easy.
