Recipe Corner: Crab Cakes

I honestly had never thought of making my own crab cakes before. But when I saw how much they cost at a local restaurant, I decided that I should try to figure it out. I hopped over to my favorite, and can you believe that they were featuring a crab cake recipe on their home page. How lucky am I?!? So I decided to share my luck with everyone else. Enjoy the recipe! And don’t forget to contact me if you are interested in having your blog and your yummy recipe featured in a Fabulous Food Friday Post. Whether you bake it, saut√© it, or just microwave it, send it in! Share your yummy food and you may find yourself with new visitors. Please email me directly if you are interested. ( )


• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 6 green onions, chopped
• 3/8 cup olive oil
• 1 (6 ounce) can canned crabmeat, drained
• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
• 1 teaspoon dry mustard
• 8 ounces buttery round crackers, crushed
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM
• salt to taste
• ground black pepper to taste
• 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs) or regular dry bread crumbs


1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over high heat. Saute green onions briefly until tender; cool slightly.
2. Combine crabmeat, sauteed green onions, egg, mayonnaise, dry mustard, crushed crackers, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Form into 1/2 inch thick patties. Coat the patties with bread crumbs.

You asked about the crackers in my beanburger recipe - you could probably substitute any savoury cracker, but they are big ones, so you might need a few more. Or half a dozen slices of toast would also work.
