Dinner doesn't have to be difficult to be Delicious!

This Memorial Day we're having some good ol' BBQ the EASY way.
Inspired by my bestie who doesn't like to spend too much time in the kitchen...what follows is a DELISH dinner that is easy, GF and super yum!
On the Menu
Pulled Pork
Gotta love the West Wing!
Potato Cakes
American Flag Pudding

This pulled pork recipe is handed down (or I guess over since we're the same age) from a friend of mine from work might recognize her from TV :)

Hub's Favorite Pulled Pork
12 oz of A&W Root Beer (NOT DIET) per 2lbs of pork
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (we use Pat's Ho-Made)
Pork Roast

Put root beer and pork in crock pot for 7hrs
Drain, shred, add bottle of BBQ Sauce

Crispy Potato Cakes
1/2 cup chopped onions (I used pre-chopped from the produce section)
3 Tbsp bacon bits (I used turkey bits)
1 oz shredded cheese
2 cups mashed potatoes (chilled)
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

Set oven to 425
Saute onions with bacon bits until carmelized, place in freezer for a few minutes to cool (this helps patties form)
In a mixing bowl add all ingredients except bread crumbs and mix
Separate into 6 equal patties
Coat both sides in breadcrumbs and bake for 12 minutes on each side

American Flag Fruit Pudding
2 pkgs of Your favorite Jell-o pudding flavor (white) follow directions on box
1 cup blueberries
3 cups chopped strawberries

this one is pretty self explanatory
we used some white icing for the stars :)
