Nothing says comfort food more than mac & cheese and pulled pork. While they are great on their own, we love the thought of combining the two into an epic pulled pork mac 'n' cheese worthy of an American stamp of appreciation. Can you image serving these up at your next game day party?

This recipe utilizes boxed mac and cheese but using some of your own leftover mac and cheese would be great as well. If you did that you could always add a spicy kick to the macaroni by adding in some pepper jack cheese along with cheddar cheese.

So grab some bbq sauce to dunk and fry some of these bad boys up.
