This carnitas pineapple panini is made with the meat from the Pioneer Woman’s Carnitas Pizza. Mouthwatering in every bite.
If yesterday’s pizza didn’t convince you that you need to try out the meat in that recipe, today’s post will. Unless you’re a vegetarian, in which case you’ve probably already exited out of here. Sorry, come back tomorrow, I have alcohol for you!
In my pineapple soaked meat induced haze, there was only one thing to be done with the leftover carnitas.
Paninify it with more pineapple and cheddar cheese.
This would be my 5% for last week and while I usually reserve such occasions for chocolate, there was no beating this greasy deliciousness.
It’s messy, sweet & savory with the perfect contrast of crispy chewy bread on the outside to soft, melt in your mouth carnitas on the inside. As I stood over the counter eating this (because waiting a second longer to get from the panini maker to the table was unthinkable) all I could think about was how this would be an awesome contender for that Guy Fieri show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. That’s something I never thought I’d say in reference to food on here, but there it is. Embrace it.
Do you want to know how nice of a person I am? I’ll tell you.
I shared this. I only ate half and saved the other one for Ulysses.
It might’ve been his birthday and I might not have been so nice the other 364 days of the year.
Just being real.
