Ingredients
4 tablespoons butter, divided
3 Honeycrisp or Macintosh apples, thinly sliced
A few sprigs thyme, picked and chopped
Nutmeg
8 1/2-inch slices good quality white bread
1/2 cup apple cider honey mustard from Fox Meadow Farm or honey mustard
2 cups extra-sharp cheddar, such as Oscars XXX sharp cheddar
8 slices thick-cut slices of your favorite bacon (I love the bacon from Oscars Smokehouse), cooked until crispy or Skillet Bacon Jam
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
A few sprigs thyme, picked and chopped
Salt and pepper
For dippers:
Woods Boiled Cider from Woods Cider Mill
BliS Bourbon Barrel Matured Pure Maple Syrup
8 slices thick-cut slices of your favorite bacon (I love the bacon from Oscars Smokehouse), cooked until crispy or Skillet Bacon Jam
Preparation

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and thyme, and season with nutmeg. Cook 5 minutes, until apples are tender and cooked down.

Spread apple cider honey mustard on each piece of bread. Build sandwiches with cheese and bacon or bacon spread.

In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper.

Melt butter on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium heat. Turn sandwiches in egg and add to griddle. Cook sandwiches 3-4 minutes on each side, until deep golden.

Serve with dippers alongside.
