At my house we believe that bacon makes everything better! So I figured, why not Crab Cakes, too?

I just love crab cakes. Add bacon to them?! Wow ... crab cakes just went to a whole new level.

I didn't see it mentioned, so I added the bacon to this at the same time I added the crab meat. Came out wonderful! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
