Found this in my local paper;

Tastebuds will definitely perk up with this apple, cheddar and bacon pie.

Apple Pie

1 prepared or favourite homemade pie shell

1 l (4 cups) sliced peeled Granny Smith apples (slices should be 5 mm/1/4 inch thick)

5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

175 ml (3/4 cup) grated aged cheddar cheese

75 ml (1/3 cup) lightly packed brown sugar

5 ml (1 tsp) fresh thyme.

Heat oven to 180 C (350 F). Bake pie shell according to package directions. Reduce oven temperature to 160 C (325 F).

In a large bowl, toss apples with bacon, cheese, brown sugar and thyme. Spread evenly in pie shell. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until apples are tender.

Makes 10 servings.

Interesting. Not sure how that would taste, but I'm up for trying it. The wife however said, no way! lol. I see the instructions call for thyme, but it's not listed in the ingredients. Approximately how much would you use?

AK1,
 
Nice to see u on line again ... Hope the New Year has brought all the best of health, fulfillment and success your way ...
 
Savoury apple pie ... Well, ?
 
I truly am a traditionalist when it comes to my Mom Eva´s  home made apple pie ... I have to say; we do not use orange waxy cow cheeses or orange rind cow cheeses ... the dye  ...
 
Enjoy, the concoction;
Margaux.

Sorry I missed that Mike.

Hi Margie, No worries, I too am a traditionalist when it comes to apple pie. 
I don't consider this recipe a replacement for a good apple pie. It's something different to try. As for the cheese, just use a nice aged "undyed" cheddar

Smile Sounds yummy and I am doing it tomorrow. Just the sort of thing to have in the fridge for my working man and boy to tuck into the lunchbox.

Smells great. I am going to let it get cold and they can have wedges in their lunch boxes tomorrow.

UPDATE: OK...Best laid plans and all that... teenboy arrived home from work, spied it and attacked it with the bread knife Shocked
Verdict ".....its [munch] good [munch munch] so [munch] good, you can [munch] make this again. Its so weird! It gets better [munch munch] weird and good like pizza."

He is right! It is fruity pizza and very yummy.
