CBST (Crab, Bacon, Spinach, Tomato) Sandwiches

For one of our Thanksgiving appetizers we bought
 some crab and T bought just a bit too much. What a huge problem given how much we LOVE crab.

The idea of too much crab just swimming around in G's head was just too much he decided we must make crab blt's but without lettuce in the fridge they became CBST's (C=Crab, B=Bacon, S= Spinach, T= Tomato.)

We started with some thick cut peppered bacon cooked off in the oven until crispy.

Some tomatoes from our garden that have been ripening in our window for awhile now.

We put down some spinach on sourdough bread.

Next we layered with tomatoes and spread bread with some creamy Dijon.

Topped Dijon with lump crab meat. And finally the

peppered bacon.

We buttered the bread slightly on the outside before placing the sandwiches in the panini press.

After about 7 minutes they were melty and golden brown. Ready.

Good stuff and a great way to use up a little bit of extra crab.
