The way to get this position a tempo up is via the Trompovsky attack. The greatest modern GM exponent of the Trompovsky is arguably GM Julian Hodgson. Here are some example games of his, where he arrived at the above position but a full tempo up, assuming black plays d5 and Bf4 is considered a useful move :-

Edit: The assumption of Bf4 being useful is actually not proven as Hodgson has often played it back to the e3 square to allow the f pawn to move. So perhaps it does not matter about the Bf4. The idea of f3 as a gambit is quite interesting, and if black did play passively with just d5 and say e6 after e4, then White might just play a setup with e5,Be3 and f4 and have the same tempi as many games stemming from the Trompovsky attack.

So for example the following move sequence would transpose into a GM Julian Hodgson type game with the Trompovsky:-

How odd. Have you games illustrating this in competitive play? An immediate d5 from Black looks obvious?
