Ingredients

6
slices bacon
4
cups finely chopped peeled apples (3 medium)
1
teaspoon grated gingerroot
1/4
cup packed brown sugar
1
tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons apple juice
24
slices (1/2 inch thick) baguette French bread
2
tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2
cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
Additional fresh thyme sprigs, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside. Reserve drippings in skillet.
