  3. Place slices of bacon, cheese, and apple into the pocket.Melt the butter in a large skillet set on medium high heat
  4. Dip the bread pockets into the egg mixture, turning to soak both sides
  5. Place the pockets in the skillet, fry for 30 seconds, then immediately turn the heat down to medium low

  7. Flip and do the same for the second side.Cut slices in half, sprinkle with sifted powdered sugar, and serve with real maple syrup.***If you’ve never had Dubliner cheese before, it’s a combination of sharp cheddar, swiss, and Parmesan
  8. You can find it in most grocery stores under the brand name Kerrygold
  9. Gruyere or a sharp white cheddar could work as substitutes.*I used La Brea’s Pane Toscano and it was perfect
