Stilton, Bacon and Mushroom Starter

The strong flavours in the Stilton and bacon give this easy recipe an elaborate feel. It is served in England, but gets it's flavors from the Italian and French. In England, they serve it with "streaky bacon" which if I understand correctly, is an even fattier cut of bacon. Please correct me if I am wrong. Found this on the Stilton cheese site.
