This easy two step recipe requires you to layer everything up and then cook the fries in the oven.
Step 1: Prep Up the Fries
Begin by preheating the oven to 425° F.
Use a large baking sheet and start with a layer of fries covering the pan. On top add the shredded pork, followed by the bbq sauce, onions and cheese.
Step 2: Cook the Fries
When the oven is hot, place the tray of layered fries in the oven and bake until they are hot and the cheese is melted!
Sprinkle the green onions over the top before serving them up!
Hint: Use a large pan which allows you to spread out the fries into a somewhat single layer. I find this half sheet pan that’s about 13 x 18 inches in size works best!
This way the fries cook up perfectly and everything is evenly distributed! If your oven won’t fit this size, then split it up into two trays.

Pulled pork fries are best eaten when they are first made. However, if you have leftovers and want to try to keep them, you can store the fries in the refrigerator for up to five days.
This is an easy recipe that any level cook should be able to quickly and easily prepare! But there are a few tips I’ve learned over time making this that I recommend to make sure you achieve excellent results.
- Use crinkle cut fries. These cook up crispier and also hold onto the toppings better.
- Spread out the fries into a relatively thin layer. They can overlap a little but not piled up super high.
- Serve loaded fries with pulled immediately for best flavor! Serve up a fun sauce for dipping like this Quick Blue Cheese Dip.
- Evenly spread all the ingredients out on top of the fries. This way each bite will be filled with ultimate yumminess!

While I typically don’t recommend these fries for leftovers, as I don’t think they taste as good the second time around, if you want to reheat, spread them out on a tray and top with a bit more cheese. Bake in the oven to reheat the fries and pork and melt the cheese.
Loaded fries are most frequently served up as a starter in many restaurants. Since these pulled pork fries are topped with meat, they can both double as a side dish and a meal.
