Maryland Crab Cakes
Do-It-Yourself has never tasted so good as with these crab cakes, or crabcakes, if you will. This is a stand-alone favorite - can be served with crackers, on a roll or all by itself. So, you want to fix up a few for dinner or lunch? Here's what it takes...
- 2 slices white bread
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- 2 tsp parsley
- ½ tsp yellow mustard
- 1 egg
- 1 lb crab meat
- Start out by turning your broiler on to med-high.
- Remove the crust off the bread and either eat it, give it to the dog, or throw it away.
- Break the bread into small pieces and set it aside.
- In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, Old Bay, parsley, mustard, and egg (beat the egg first) in med size bowl.
- Add the crab meat to the mayonnaise mixture. Note: If you use packaged crab meat, be sure to pick through it to look for hidden shells!
- Now add the bread to the mayonnaise mixture.
- Forget the spoon! Use your hands to mix everything together being very careful not to break up the lumps of crab meat.
- Form the crab cakes into patties that fit in your hand and place them on a baking sheet or tray.
- Broil your Maryland Crab Cakes for 10 min or until brown.
- Serve with crackers or on a roll.
- Try using Italian Seasoning instead of parsley! Mmmmmmm!
- If you want to spice things up, add a little extra Old Bay Seasoning.
- Try adding a dash of hot sauce to give your Maryland Crab Cakes a little kick.
- The BEST Maryland Crab Cakes are made with fresh hand-picked crab meat so go get some crabs and get to pickin’!
- Some people like to put tarter or cocktail sauce on their crab cakes, but many Baltimoreans like to use a touch of yellow mustard.
- Don't always have time to make your own crabcakes?
- Order some already made - and maybe keep some in your freezer - for when you get the "taste" for Maryland Crab.
