The sweet potato biscuits freeze beautifully--thaw, bake, and top them just before serving.


  • 1 cup finely chopped red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce, divided

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 Sweet Potato Biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 pound warm barbecue pork (without sauce), chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

How to Make It

  1. Toss together first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Let stand 30 minutes. Rinse and drain well. Whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. barbecue sauce in a medium bowl. Stir in cabbage mixture and green onions. Add salt and pepper to taste.
