Crab Cake BLTs with Chipotle Lime Mayo


I love crab cakes as an appetizer, but adding them to a BLT adds a whole other level of flavor. The sweet crab combines perfectly with the salty bacon and the chipotle mayo (which is one of my favorite condiments to make) provides a wonderful spicy kick. Serve this meal with a leafy green salad or sweet potato fries on the side.



1. Place mayo ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Set aside.


2. Combine crab cake ingredients in a large bowl and shape into 8 patties.



3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat. Add 4 crab cakes and cook for 4 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining butter and crab cakes.



4. Spread mayo onto each toasted bread slice. Top 4 of the bread slices with lettuce, 2 crab cakes, bacon, avocado and tomato. Top with the remaining bread slices. Cut each sandwich in 1/2 and serve.
