In my opinion, crab cakes are a welcome addition to any brunch table. And while a jumbo lump crab cake is a wonderful treat, this version loosens up the mix; the thinner cake is perfect for a lighter, but no less impressive-looking, breakfast sandwich. Some added layers of avocado and crisp bacon balance the tender and meaty cakes with creaminess and crunch.

Some other additions you could think about with this sandwich are a good dash of hot sauce, a few crisp lettuce leaves, or even a slice of melted cheese (don't knock it till you try it!) but as long as you've got lots of napkins and a pitcher of Bloody Marys, you're sure to have a group of satisfied brunch guests.
