If you are looking for a quick and easy meal for tonight’s pre-trick-or-treat dinner (or any time), you’ve come to the right place. This meal is low prep and portable, plus it will be ready in 25 minutes or less. Read on to find out how to make these delicious BBQ pork and sweet potato sliders for your meal plan.
I don’t know who came up with the idea of using sweet potato rounds instead of buns or bread, but they are a genius. I’ve seen them all over Pinterest and Instagram, so I decided to try them for our family paired with dry rub hand pulled pork from Farm Rich Smokehouse, fresh baby spinach, and a little barbecue sauce. The flavor combination is AMAZING.
- one package of Farm Rich Smokehouse meat in your choice of flavor – We went with the dry rub pork because I wasn’t sure if the kids would eat the meat with sauce already on it. They ended up liking it both ways, so you can save a step by purchasing the version with sauce already included. (1 package = 5 servings)
- 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce of your choice
- a handful of baby spinach
- one big, fat sweet potato for every 2 people (1 s.p. = 3-5 sliders)
- additional toppings of your choice – bacon, avocado, cole slaw, pickles, whatever you want…
- 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Preheat your oven to 425.
- Peel your sweet potato, then slice it in to thick rounds (at least 1/4 inch). Use the leftovers to make mini sweet potato fries.
- Toss sweet potato pieces with olive oil and lay out on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes or until slighly crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. My oven is a 70s relic, so my cook times are always questionable.
- While your sweet potatoes are baking, take your Farm Rich Smokehouse meat out of the freezer. Remove from the pouch and microwave according to the directions. If you are using the dry rub like I did, add the BBQ sauce after the first round of cooking. Stir it well and then do the second round.
- Assemble your sliders with just like you would with buns, with the baked sweet potato rounds instead. Add the meat, spinach, and toppings of choice, then enjoy. If you want to add a Halloween touch, stick a spinach stem out of the top and add a jack-o-lantern face with peppercorns. So cute!
