Cut the toasted bread into squares and put in the food processor. Pulse until it forms breadcrumbs.

Form balls the size of a golf ball. Make a well and fill in with a dice of Kilmeaden White Cheddar. Close the ball. Dip each ball into flour, then in one beaten egg, then in the rest of the breadcrumbs and fry in vegetable oil for about 15 minutes.
