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

We love crab cakes. Add bacon to them? Wow! This recipe takes crab cakes to a whole new level. There's not much filler in these cakes. You really taste the sweet crab and smoky bacon. Easy to make, serve these as an appetizer or a light lunch alongside a salad.
