Porking Out On Leftover BBQ Pork Toas-Tites

leftover-ribs-toastitesSome of the original literature for the Toas-Tite says it can turn leftovers into a delicious new meal.  Boy and I hadn’t done leftover Toas-Tites before, but the other night we decided to pick up some barbeque ribs, a pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw, and baked beans for dinner.  Needless to say, our eyes were way bigger than our stomachs.

So the next day, we decided to throw the rest of the barbeque feast into some Toas-Tites.

Here’s what we came out with…

BBQ Pork Ribs and Coleslaw Toas-Tite

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of sourdough bread
  • Butter to cover one side of each bread
  • 1/4 c. barbeque pork ribs
  • 1/8 c. coleslaw

Pulled Pork and Baked Beans Toas-Tite

  • 2 slices of sourdough bread
  • Butter to cover one side of each bread
  • 1/4 c. pulled pork
  • 1/8 c. baked beans

Directions

  1. Pick all your pork off the bone (if there are any bones) and cut it up into bite sized pieces
  2. Butter one side of each of your pieces of bread and place one piece of bread buttered side down
  3. Place your pork/beans or pork/coleslaw in the center of the Toas-Tite depression
  4. Place the other piece of bread on top of your filling, buttered side up
  5. Clamp the Toas-Tite and cut off the excess bread
  6. Toast away!

Notes

pork_coleslaw_toas_titeBoy and I started with cold filling ingredients, so to warm up all the pork deliciousness through, we toasted over medium low heat (to avoid over Toas-Titing the whole thing).  Each Toas-Tite took about 10 minutes to get crispy and brown on the outside and hot on the inside.

Beware of using excessively saucy pork.  It can soak through your bread and make a bit of a mess.

Conclusion

The sourdough bread (which is actually the only bread option we had at the time) went really nicely with both types of pork.  It crisped up really nicely and sealed well in the Toas-Tite.

The coleslaw stayed surprisingly not wilted or squishy.  It actually maintained a nice bit of crunch with added to some uniqueness for the Toas-Tite.
