Sweet Potato Pulled Pork Sliders

Sweet Potato Pulled Pork Sliders 1 Hey guys! Did you have a good weekend? I think I did….I’m trying to remember what exactly I did and nothing is coming to mind. I know I took a nap or two…or four. And I probably did a little eating.

Oh wait. I went to see a movie with friends and then got frozen yogurt. Those fro-yo places are popping up on every corner and I kind of secretly love it. My theory is everyone deep down wants 5 kinds of frozen yogurt topped with brownie pieces and cookie dough.

And oreos.

And nerds.

And chocolate covered pretzels.

And nutterbutters.

At least I did Saturday night. Cause I’m basically an 8 year old.

I figure I only live once. I’d also like to point out that I have no self control.

But that is neither here nor there. You all already knew that.

ANYWAYS, I bring up self control for a reason. And that reason is because I have none when it comes to most foods except maybe salad. And steamed vegetables.

See these purdy little sliders I made? YEAH. They were amazeballs. Self control? NO SIR! I had none when I made these and happily shoved 11 of these little guys into my obnoxiously large mouth.

Now, if you think you’re not a mild pepperoncini ring person, I would beg to differ, especially in these little sandwiches. They make such a nice balance between the sweet pork and the slaw. It’s a delicious zing with a teeny tiny kick. Plus, my sister got me hooked on them last summer and I’ve never been the same. {Try them in egg or tuna salad sandwiches….so yummy!}

If you have a really great pulled pork recipe that you swear by, use that one. I used my easy bbq pulled pork recipe {meant for the crockpot!} with our all time favorite coleslaw recipe. It’s my husband’s and my father-in-law’s favorite recipe for coleslaw for ever and ever til the end of time. Or that’s what I tell myself.

Anyways, because I love ya, and because I know you all just can never get enough of me {HAHA!} I made a video on how to make these sliders. So without further ado, here I go:

Sweet Potato Pulled Pork Sliders Super simple, really yummy and rather cute. You all must make these this week! So ridiculous you won’t want to share. Happy Monday!! Here’s the printable:

Sweet Potato Pulled Pork Sliders

Yield: 4-6 servings


1/2 recipe Easy BBQ Pulled Pork
1/2 recipe The Best Coleslaw Ever
1 package crinkle cut sweet potato fries, such as Alexia
1/3 cup drained mild yellow pepper rings


Bake sweet potato fries as directed on package. Cool slightly 5 minutes. To assemble sliders, place 1-2 heaping tablespoons of pulled pork on one sweet potato fry. Top with slaw and a few yellow pepper rings. Top with another sweet potato fry approximately the same size. Repeat until no more fries remain. Serve warm.

    A) you are too cute and I love your videos.
    B) these look amazeballs! I love that you used sweet potato fries (by my fave brand!) as buns. What the what.
    C) do you have any leftovers?

    I think I would like those sweet potatoes even more than a bun.

    I had Alexia’s regular waffle-cut fries this weekend and LOVED how crispy they were! I love this idea. I bet sweet potatoes go very well with pulled pork!

    These look great! Are they paleo friendly? I haven’t (yet! ) dug deep enough intothe bbq or slaw recipe to figure that out.
