    Serves 4
    1 (24-oz.) pkg. Hy-Vee extra crispy waffle cut French fried potatoes
    3 c. Hy-Vee pulled pork with sauce
    3 c. Hy-Vee shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

    Things To Grab

    • Large rimmed baking pan
    • Heavy aluminum foil
    • Ruler
    • Charcoal or gas grill
    • Meat thermometer


    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spread waffle fries on a large rimmed baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until very crispy, flipping once halfway through. Remove from oven and cool completely.

    2. Cut 4 (14x12-inch each) sheets of heavy foil. Divide and layer 1/3 potatoes, 1 cup pulled pork, and 1 cup shredded Cheddar on the foil sheets. Repeat layers two more times using remaining ingredients. Bring up short sides of foil. Double-fold top, then double-fold ends to seal packets. Refrigerate until ready to grill. 

    3. To grill, preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat (375 degrees). Open packets by gently unfolding tops of packets and pulling back foil; leave ends of packets in tact. Grill 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through (165 degrees). Remove from grill. Top with sliced jalapenos; drizzle with barbeque sauce and ranch salad dressing, if desired.
