This Loaded BBQ Pork Potato Salad is just the thing you need for you next cook-out with friends and family. Guaranteed to leave your guests moaning with delight.
This is how it all starts. With loaded mashed potatoes. I used red potatoes (just about three pounds) but you could use whatever potatoes you have on hand. I mashed them together with bacon, cream cheese, butter, cheese, and green onions. Yep, we’re off to a great start.
Next I topped it with mouthwatering Byron’s Pork BBQ. The pork is heating in the oven while the potatoes are cooking and it works out to be perfect timing.
Byron’s has been perfecting their barbecue recipes since 1957. Trust me, they’ve nailed it with this Pork BBQ. Perfectly sweet with just a hint of spiciness and smoky flavor, it’s exactly what those mashed potatoes needed on top.
Ridiculously good people. I mean really, I could hardly stand to part with this succulent pork buuut I knew it was going to be amazing with the loaded mashed potatoes.
I threw some more cheese on top and popped the whole casserole back into the oven for a few minutes to let the cheese melt. Ooey gooey perfection my friends. Exactly what your next get-together needs.
