  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 4 large, soft white buns, sliced in half horizontally
  • 8 slices medium cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded BBQ country pork ribs, or other left over barbecued meat
  • Additional barbecue sauce as needed


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • In a small skillet, heat the butter over medium heat until melted. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. If the onion begins to brown too quickly turn the heat down to medium low. Set aside.
  • Lay the bread open on a baking sheet. On the bottom half of each bun layer a slice of cheese, 1/2 cup pork, 1/4 of the onions, and another slice of cheese. If the meat looks dry, add a little barbecue sauce on top of the onions, before the second slice of cheese. Top with the other half of the bun and bake until the bread is crisp and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
