What Chips Pair well with Pulled Pork Sandwiches?

I don’t think there are any chips that won’t go well with pulled pork sandwiches. My personal favorite is the classic potato chip! A close second would be Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips.

There are countless choices, including kettle chips, baked chips, ruffle chips, and corn chips. Let’s not forget the diverse flavors available, such as sour cream and onion, BBQ, cheddar, cheddar and sour cream, original, salt and vinegar, and sea salt. What’s your favorite?

Can a Pulled Pork Sandwich Topping Double as a Side?

I’ve always wondered this! If I serve a topping for a pulled pork sandwich, should I also provide enough if guests want it as a side dish? For instance, if I offer creamy coleslaw as a topping, will guests take more as a side?

What to Serve with Pulled Pork Sandwiches

When hosting a pulled pork sandwich bar for a party or gathering, consider asking your guests to bring an assortment of different sides. This takes the workload off you, allowing you to enjoy the party too!

It also makes your guests feel useful. Ensure that you assign sides based on their strengths. If a guest is not a cook, it might be better to ask them to bring a store-bought side like potato chips.

Creating a Pulled Pork Sandwich Side Bar

That’s right, I said side bar! Set up a dedicated area for all your sides. Use mini blow-up tubes to keep ice and keep cold items like fruit salad, potato salad, pasta salads, and deviled eggs chilled.

Soup Sides for Pulled Pork Sandwiches

A soup and sandwich combo is one of my favorite meals. Many restaurants even have sections of their menus dedicated to soup and sandwich selections. Experiment with options like cheesy broccoli cauliflower soup, chili, or cheesy bacon and asparagus soup.

Salads for Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Salads are perhaps the most popular side dish for a pulled pork sandwich. A classic potato salad always hits the spot. If you’re looking to use up some garden vegetables, consider a cucumber tomato onion salad or a broccoli salad.

Sauces to Accompany Pulled Pork Sandwiches

For guests who prefer their sandwiches bursting with flavor, make sure to offer a variety of sauces for them to experiment with. Flavored aiolis, Dijon mustard, dipping sauces, hot sauce, and even brown sugar barbecue sauce are all must-haves.

Fried Sides for Pulled Pork Sandwiches

If you’re serving made-to-order pulled pork sandwiches, fried side dishes might be an excellent choice for you. However, keep in mind that fried foods are not ideal for a side bar setup. Utilize a deep fryer or an air fryer for options like French fries, sweet potato fries, hush puppies, corn fritters, and onion rings.
