Pork and apple go together like Batman and Robin, and like that dynamic duo, this sandwich wears a costume and solves crime. Maybe not so much, but this sandwich is pure deliciousness, with crunchy apple supporting tender, juicy pork with golden BBQ sauce bathing them both. Leave the Joker-fighting to the cape-wearers and have this sandwich all to yourself.

If using diced chicken, follow same instructions as pulled pork in Step 4 (no need to coarsely chop), cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Add bacon to sandwich atop pulled pork.
Broil the Potatoes
Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and season with seasoned salt.
Spread into a single layer. Place under hot broiler and broil until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
Keep an eye on potatoes while under broiler.
While potatoes cook, prepare apple.

Prepare the Apple
Quarter apple and remove core. Thinly slice.
Combine apple slices and mayonnaise in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Cook the Pork
Coarsely chop pulled pork. Excess pork fat will render while cooking and add flavor.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add pulled pork and 1 Tbsp. water to hot pan.
Stir occasionally until warmed through, 3-5 minutes.
Remove from burner and add a pinch of salt. Remove pork to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Toast Buns and Finish Dish
Return pan used to cook pork to medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add buns to hot pan, cut-side down. Toast until golden brown, 3-5 minutes.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with apple, pork, BBQ sauce, and top bun. Bon appétit!
