  • 2. Notes
    Be sure to pick over the crab meat. It sometimes contains shells!
    If you like your crab cakes spicy, add an extra teaspoon of Old Bay.
    You’ll need ...
    1 small onion
    1 bell pepper
    2 tsp. Old Bay
    1 tsp. Worcestershire
    ¼ tsp. hot dry mustard
    ¼ tsp. Tabasco
    1 egg, beaten
    1 scant C. mayonnaise
    1 C. crushed potato chips
    1 lb. lump crab meat
  • 3. Chop up bell pepper & onion.
    For sweeter crab cakes, use red bell peppers.
  • 4. Sauté in 2 Tbsp. butter about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
    Stir frequently, making sure the vegetables become soft without blackening. Then remove from heat.
  • 5. 2 tsp. Old Bay
    1 tsp. Worcestershire
    ¼ tsp. Tabasco
    ¼ tsp. hot dry mustard
    1 egg
    Scant C. mayo
    1 C. crushed chips
    1 lb. lump crab
    Mix gently but thoroughly.
    Add spices, mayo, potato chips, egg & crab to pan.
  • 6. Use an ice cream scoop or ¼ C. measure to form cakes.
    Place cakes on an ungreased jelly roll pan. Then cover them with plastic wrap and chill them for an hour or more.
  • 7. Fry or bake until golden brown.
    Bake he cakes in a 350 degree oven for approximately 25 minutes.
    To make them browner, put them under the broiler for 5 minutes more.
    You can also fry the cakes in butterover medium high heat.
  • 8. Garnish with lemon wedges.
    Serve them on hamburger buns or alone.
    I like to squirt fresh lemon on my crab cakes, as will many of your guests.
