Leftover Summer BBQ Recipes 3 Ways | @hbharvest{This post is sponsored by Smithfield! I’ve used their BBQ Seasoned Pork Ribs to make these three quick and easy recipes that are perfect for all your summer cookout leftovers!}

You guys, we need to have a random little chat.

Don’t worry, I’ll keep it quick. You remember on Thursday how we added a rooster to our chicken coop? Well, if you know anything about chickens than you know that roosters can be pretty aggressive. Luckily ours seems to be OK, but he definitely can be a little rowdy if you get in his space. Here’s the thing though, my dad is SO serious about this rooster. He was over on Friday night and he looked so intent as he was telling me how I need to care for this thing when he is gone. Like no joke, he acted like this rooster was going to bite my face off.

Leftover Summer BBQ Recipes 3 Ways | @hbharvestThe determined tone of his voice as he discussed this bird was INTENSE. It just makes me laugh a little. I mean, five years ago I would have never thought my dad would be talking to me about how to care for a roster, but there he was, acting like the thing was a mountain lion or something. I feel like I should probably be taking this a bit more seriously…but I mean, it is just a chicken…


If you follow me on snapchat (hbharvest) than you have already met the new guy, and heard him too…he’s loud. Probably going to be lots more snaps of the animals this week cause guess who is on chicken and goat duty… ME. Should be real fun. 🙂

OKok, let’s talk recipes now! I have not one, not two, but THREE new recipes I’m sharing with you guys today. I don’t know about you, but when I cook for a crowd, or even just my family, I always make a ton of food. Too much for us all to eat, but I figure it’s always best to have too much, than risk having too little. My goal is to never let anyone go home hungry…it’s a good goal and all, but it always leaves me with plenty of leftovers.

Leftover Summer BBQ Recipes 3 Ways | @hbharvestWhich brings me to these leftover summer BBQ recipes. I personally love leftovers. I have a lot of fun creating really good, easy meals with leftovers and I thought it would be fun to share some of my GO-TO recipes using ribs. With the July 4th just around the corner, and summer in full swing, I feel like at some point, most of us will have a rack of ribs lying around. These three recipes are the perfect way to use up that extra pork.

Alright, let’s go through the recipes one by one shall we?

…recipe one: nachos!! I feel like this one might be slightly obvious, but I’m still sharing it with you guys because nachos need to be shared. These are simple, but delicious. Shredded BBQ pork, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, sweet corn, guacamole, mango salsa + fried eggs… don’t skip the fried eggs, they’re everything on nachos, TRUST ME. Also, you could totally do these for breakfast, I mean, there is an egg!

…recipe two: BBQ pork cobb salad. This is the healthy leftover option, but promise it’s still delicious. Shredded pork, spinach, ripe peaches, tomatoes, avocado, hard-boiled eggs, blue cheese and honey mustard vinaigrette.

And DONE. Three quick and easy recipes to help turn your leftovers into something totally new and fun! Sooo, whose ready for a little Sunday cookout?!? The idea here is, cook today… yummy eats all week long…
