4/4 (22 vote cast)
1 lb. crab meat
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. oil-packed sundried tomatoes, chopped
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
8 slices sourdough bread, thick-sliced
3 Tbsp. butter, softened
3/4 cup brie, rind trimmed, sliced
1 1/2 cups watercress, cleaned
12 slices applewood smoked bacon, cooked
1 medium avocado, peeled and sliced
In a medium bowl, fold together crab meat, lemon juice, tomatoes, mayonnaise, mustard and dill.
Brush sourdough slices evenly with butter on one side. Flip four of the slices, and mound the unbuttered sides evenly with brie, watercress, bacon, avocado, and crab meat mixture. Top with remaining four bread slices, buttered sides up.
Grill sandwiches in a large skillet over medium heat for 4-5 minutes per side, or until bread is toasted and cheese has melted. Cut in half and enjoy!
Serve alongside your favorite green salad, potato chips or french fries.
