How To Prepare Crabcake BLTs ?


Preparation time:  25 mins

Cooking time: 20 mins

Serving: 8


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pound fresh crab meat, a combination of lump and claw meat, drained and flaked
  • 3/4 cup plain fine breadcrumbs (about 4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup Old Bay Mayo (recipe above)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 8 soft potato buns
  • 2 large beefsteak tomatoes, thickly sliced
  • 1 head bibb or butter lettuce, washed and dried


  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, Old Bay, and lemon juice, and stir to combine.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the crabmeat with the breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup of the Old Bay mayo, eggs, and parsley. Use a spatula to stir the mixture well. Divide the mixture into 8 portions (a rounded 1/2 cup each) using clean hands or a large disher.
  3. Form the portions into rounds (3½-by-1/3 inches) and set them aside on a rimmed baking sheet. Chill the crab cakes while you prepare the grill and cook the bacon, about 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a gas grill to medium-high heat or prepare a charcoal grill for two-zone grilling. Make sure the grates are clean to prevent sticking.
  5. Lightly oil the grill grates and add the chilled crab cakes. Grill the crabcakes over direct heat for 5 minutes before flipping with a thin metal spatula. Grill on the other side until golden, about another 5 minutes.
  6. Arrange the bacon on another rimmed baking sheet and cook over direct heat, covered, until crispy, about 15 minutes. Remove the bacon pan from the grill and set it aside.
  7. Lightly toast the buns on the grill while it is still warm, about 2 minutes over medium-high heat.
  8. Each sandwich should get 1 to 2 tablespoons of Old Bay mayo on the bun, one crab cake, 1 slice of bacon, a slice of tomato and lettuce, to finish.
