I love an easy dinner I can whip up quickly with leftovers! Pork roast is my favorite because it’s super delish but it makes a ton and you can make so many meals with it. I like to cook one pork roast and make these 5 meals on the regular! In fact, I’m a big fan of all quick and easy dinners with pork, aren’t you?

Pulled pork is my favorite meat to use. It’s inexpensive, makes a lot, is super versatile, and so so yummy. Check out these other pulled pork meal ideas:

Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork

Who doesn’t need barbecue pulled pork mac and cheese in their life? I went to a blogging conference recently and they served it there. I was HOOKED! That smokey sweet bbq flavor on creamy rich mac and cheese. I came home and whipped up some of my homemade bbq sauce and got to work on a pork roast. There are so many yummy things to make, but this one takes the cake!

It’s easier because you cook the pasta right in the casserole dish and only have to use one dish! I love any meals that reduce the time I have to wash dishes afterward. Doing dishes stinks.

We have the rule if you cook you don’t have to clean up, so that helps a lot, but I do clean a ton as I go or my poor husband who doesn’t even cook toast around here would really be suffering from all the cleaning. Cooking for 7 kids plus the two of us and making most things from scratch can really build up the mess in the kitchen!
