Bacon Sandwiches

Everyone loves a classic BLT, but bacon can make just about any sandwich even more delicious. Add some crispy bacon strips to sandwiches packed with grilled salmon, melted cheese, chicken salad or scrambled eggs. If you’re a diehard BLT lover, try mixing up the traditional version by adding fried green tomatoes, garlic aioli, lobster meat or a fried egg. One of our favorite sandwiches featuring bacon is a breakfast version of a Vietnamese banh mi made with duck pate, spicy pickles, five-spice flavored bacon and a fried egg. Find these recipes and more in F&W’s guide to bacon sandwiches.

At Gjelina Take Away in Los Angeles, you can only get this excellent sandwich in the summer because the tomatoes have to be sweet and richly flavored with just the right texture. The sourdough bread should be toasted, but make sure it’s not too dark and crisp. Slideshow:  More BLT Recipes

Soft-Shell Crab and Bacon Sandwiches

As a Baltimore native, David Lentz feels strongly about the proper way to cook soft-shells: pan-fried (he hasn't let his girlfriend, Suzanne Goin, prepare them since she tried to grill them). He arranges the crabs on a baguette with bacon, cabbage slaw and mustard crème fraîche and eats the sandwich open-faced, though it's neater with the top on. More Amazing Seafood Recipes
