Crab Cakes


Crab Cakes (I have seen many recipes, but none exactly like MINE)

8 oz. fresh crab meat
1 green onion, chopped
1 slice of bread, crusts cut off, torn into tiny pieces (I used ciabatta)
2 T. mayo
1 T dijon mustard
1 1/2 t. Old Bay seasoning
1 egg, beaten

Mix all of ingredients. Form into patties and chill for a few minutes. Fill a quart or sandwich size ziplock bag with potato chips, and smash them. I use Hawaiian Chips (or kettle chips). Smash them into tiny crispy, greasy crumbs! Now roll those chilled crab cakes in the potato chip crumbs and fry them quickly in some hot olive oil. Just a couple of minutes on each side for a wonderful crunchy crust with no additional salt needed.

Mmmm! Your crab cakes sound so good. I can't wait to try them. Grazie! 'See you in Savannah.


Sounds very tasty! I was never crazy about the Maryland crab cakes (or maybe I just got tired of them) but I might just have to try these!
