To Cook (10 mins)

1. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a frying pan and fry the apples for around 2 mins, stirring gently. Add the remaining half of the Liège Syrup and mix well.

3. Fry the lardons in the same pan as the apples.

4. Place the cheese-topped toasts onto plates and top with a few fried lardons. Arrange the remaining fried lardons, the apples and some mixed nuts around the toasts.
