BBQ Pork Baked Potato

Put a stop to that plain Jane baked potato and stimulate those old taste buds by adding a creative topping to your spud. This recipe will do the trick. It is very easy and super filling.

BBQ Pork Baked Potato


- 4 Large Potatoes
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Pound Triple T's BBQ Shredded Pork
- 1 Cup Pre-Made Coleslaw
- 4 Tablespoons Butter (Optional)


Find large potatoes that are approximately 6 inches in length. Wash the outside of the potatoes. Using a fork, pierce each side four times, approximately an inch apart. Then brush them with olive oil, completely coating them, sprinkle each potato with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Place potatoes on baking sheet and into a 400° pre-heated oven to bake for 60 minutes. *Note that cooking time is based on the size of your potatoes, so if using smaller potatoes bake for less time. Bake until tender. Potatoes are done if you can easily slide a butter knife through the middle.

While the potatoes are baking, heat the BBQ Shredded Pork by microwave or stove top until it is warmed through.

Remove potatoes from the oven and let cool enough to touch. Then lengthwise, cut a slice half way into the potato and gently squeeze sides together forming a pocket.

Add 1/4 pound of the BBQ Shredded Pork to each potato, then top with 1/4 cup of the pre-made coleslaw.

(Optional: Add 1 Tablespoon of butter before adding the meat to give your potato a rich buttery flavor)
