What is the Best Bun for these Sandwiches?
I make my life as easy as possible and go with whatever we have in the house. But you can use hamburger buns, potato buns, brioche buns, or a kaiser roll. If you are serving for a crowd and want smaller sandwiches you can totally use slider rolls too!
Can I make these ahead of time?
If you are wanting to meal prep and get stuff done ahead of time I suggest making the pork and the slaw and then storing in the fridge. Then reheat the meat and make the sandwiches at the time you are going to serve them.
The best toppings for Pulled Pork Sandwiches
While I love adding slaw on top of my sandwich there are also other tasty optioins for making slow cooker pulled pork.
Add BBQ sauce. It is cooked with BBQ sauce but tastes delicious when you add more on top.
Add cheese. A slice of cheese added on top is a great topping addition. American Cheese, Cheddar cheese, and provolone cheese are our go tos.
Add Pickles. I love adding crunchy pickle slices on top.
