Bacon, Apple, and Dubliner Cheese Stuffed French Toast for #SundaySupper

Bacon, Apple, and Dubliner Cheese Stuffed French Toast | Neighborfood

Is there anything in the whole world better than having breakfast for dinner?

Ok, ok so maybe there’s a few things that are better. Summer vacations. Sleeping in. Christmas morning. True love.

But breakfast for dinner is waaay up there on my list of favorite things, right between air conditioning and ballet flats.

Breakfast for dinner is a standard in our house, occurring at least once a week. Around these parts, we call it brinner– a celebration of eggs, bacon, pancakes, and french toast–brought back for an evening encore.

I’ll be honest, on our laziest days, sometimes brinner means nothing more than a bowl of cereal. But usually, brinner is an opportunity for us to indulge in the more elaborate breakfasts we never seem to have time for on the average weekday morning.

Brinner is a time to play, to mix sweet and savory in combinations that wouldn’t usually grace the dinner table.

This Bacon, Apple, and Dubliner Cheese Stuffed French Toast is the result of that delicate play. I know it sounds strange, but hear me out.

I have a long standing fondness for the Monte Cristo sandwich– a fried ham and cheese sandwich that is often served with a dust of powdered sugar and raspberry preserves.

Something about that combination–the slightly sweet, tangy preserves playing against the melty cheese and salty ham–it slays me every time.

I knew the Monte Cristo was only a step away from brinner perfection. Swap out the ham for bacon, add a few slices of apple to mimic the sweet tang of the preserves, and coat it in a classic french toast batter, and you’re left with the ultimate indulgent dinner sandwich.

Melty. Buttery. Crispy. Tangy. Sweet. This sandwich has it all. The Dubliner cheese provides the perfect foil to the sweet maple syrup and just the right sharpness against the apple. The bread is golden and crisp on the outside, soft and warm on the inside. And the bacon…well, it’s the savory, smoked goodness that brings it all together.

Give yourself over to the brinner call. Whether it’s sweet, savory, or both in one, our #SundaySupper team has you covered for every after 5 PM breakfast craving.

Bacon, Apple, and Dubliner Cheese Stuffed French Toast for #SundaySupper
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 4 thick slices day old Italian bread (1¼ inches thick)*
  • 1 apple, sliced thin
  • 4 oz. Dubliner cheese, sliced thin**
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
Instructions
  1. Fry bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon and allow to drain on paper towels.
  2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  3. Slice each piece of bread through the middle, leaving three sides intact, creating a pocket. Place slices of bacon, cheese, and apple into the pocket.
  4. Melt the butter in a large skillet set on medium high heat. Dip the bread pockets into the egg mixture, turning to soak both sides. Place the pockets in the skillet, fry for 30 seconds, then immediately turn the heat down to medium low. Allow to cook for 4-7 minutes or until bread is golden brown and baked clear through. Flip and do the same for the second side.
  5. Cut slices in half, sprinkle with sifted powdered sugar, and serve with real maple syrup.
  6. ***If you've never had Dubliner cheese before, it's a combination of sharp cheddar, swiss, and Parmesan. You can find it in most grocery stores under the brand name Kerrygold. Gruyere or a sharp white cheddar could work as substitutes.
  7. *I used La Brea's Pane Toscano and it was perfect
