1. Mash 2 tbsp soft butter with 1 shallot (peeled and finely chopped), a few thyme leaves and some seasoning. Cut 4 thin slices off the loaf of bread. Slice off the crusts and halve the slices, then thickly spread the shallot butter over the rye bread.
2. Crumble a little Perl Las Blue Cheese over each slice. Core and slice 1 apple and toss with lemon juice, then lay it on the cheese.
3. Heat your grill to high. Grill 8 unsmoked streaky bacon rashers for 5-6 mins, turning once, till crisp. Lay on top of the apple. Garnish with a few fresh chives.
