Okay, so I thought of this after watching the next Iron Chef. John Besh's crab meat BLT was a bit more extravagant than this version, I think mine might be more "homey". Any kind of bread can be used for this as long as it's 1/2 inch think and toasted. As for the bacon I think plain old hickory smoked works for me.
