Equipment

  • Lobster claw crackers
  • Medium saucepan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 2 cups cooked lobster meat about 4 whole lobsters
  • 4 brioche buns
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Tomato slices
  • 8 cooked bacon slices
  • Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon melted salted butter
  • 4 lemon slices

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the lobster and cook just until the lobster is warmed. Don't cook longer than to reheat the lobster. 
  • As the lobster warms, place the brioche burger buns into a 350-degree oven and bake until toasted, about three to five minutes. 
  • Layer the toasted brioche buns with green leaf lettuce, tomato slices and two pieces of bacon per sandwich on the bottom piece of bread. Spread mayonnaise on the top piece of bread. 
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the lobster from the melted butter and place on top of the bacon. Squeeze the juice from a lemon slice onto the lobster. Place the top bun on the lobster. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you can't get whole lobsters, you can substitute tail meat. You may want to ask your seafood counter about your options. My local Safeways offer whole cooked lobsters, and I really love having that claw meat.
