Pulled Pork Wontons With Cheese Sauce

I'm back babies!!!

Let me just start out by saying I did not have power for 11 days.  11 f-ing days with no power and no heat.  Can you just imagine that for a second.  Imagine sleeping in a house that is 40 degrees.  And then its snowing out. And I can't bake anything! And it's dark and I can't cook! Yea it's been one heck of an 11 days.  I really missed this blog and I missed cooking even more. 

For the first time I made pulled pork with the cut of meat you are supposed to use, pork shoulder butt.  This meant there was waaaaay more pulled pork leftover than usual.  What to do with an excess of pulled pork? Why, make pulled pork wontons of course!  They will require a dipping sauce though and yes a home-made cheddar cheese sauce is the one to do the trick.

The idea for the wontons came from Life's Ambrosia.  She uses all sorts of fun ingredients to jazz her's up, but I just took the pork and plopped it in a wonton wrapper.

The cheese sauce recipe came from Serious Eats.  I followed this recipe exactly as is and I wouldn't have it any other way.  It's crazy good make it even if you don't make the wontons.  

Ooooooohhhh I am drooling.  My stomach is grumbling for these babies.  They were so damn good.


  1. Well,I'm so happy to be reading this. And the cheese sauce looks like something I will be adding to many of my meals.
