To Make the Bacon Jam:
① In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until it is crisp and golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside.
② Add the onion and shallot to the pan, and reduce the heat to low. Sauté until the onion is caramelized and soft, 25 to 30 minutes.
③ Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, 1 minute more. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and then the reserved bacon to combine. Season the mixture generously with pepper.
④ Place the Air Fried Boursin on a serving plate. Pour the hot onion-bacon mixture over the cheese.
⑤ Garnish with chives, drizzle with honey and Serve immediately with toasted bread slices.
