  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Spread the bacon on a large baking sheet. Place a small mound of crabmeat at one end of each half slice of bacon. Roll bacon around the crabmeat, securing with toothpicks, if necessary.
  3. Broil the rolled bacon 10 minutes, turning it once to ensure even browning, until evenly crisp and browned. Drain on paper towels and serve warm with duck sauce.

I made this as an appetizer for a friend's gathering, but no one ever had a chance to try them. After tasting the first one, my husband told me I couldn't take them to the party. He sat down and ate the WHOLE tray, and I am not kidding.


Great idea for an appetizer. The only thing I changed was that I cut the bacon into thirds instead of halves so that they'd be more "bite-size". I also added lemon juice, and old bay to the crab meat and I cut some jalapeno peppers into skinny slivers and rolled them up with the crab meat to add a little extra bite. Aside from the duck sauce I also provided some Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce for a tasty, hot kick. There were NO leftovers.


I made this recipe for a party this past weekend and it was a huge hit!! I premade the crab rolls and put them in the fridge until right before the party, popped them in the broiler for 10 minutes and then wa-la! Very easy to prepare, easy to cook & easy to enjoy!
