1. In a large pan, gently sauté the leeks with a large knob of butter and the thyme leaves, until softened. Mix crème fraîche with the grated cheese. In a small pan reduce the ale, mustard and worcestershire sauce. When thick, add this mixture to the cheesy crème fraîche. Season well with salt and pepper and beat in the egg yolks.
2. Toast the bread and spread with butter, add a spoonful of sautéed leeks and top with the cheese mixture then grill until bubbling. Serve with extra worcestershire sauce.
