Mar. 8 - Crab cakes

There was a sale on crab meat at BJs a few weeks ago, so I stocked up on a big tub for crab cakes. I paired them with green beans and mashed potatoes for a fabulous dinner tonight - Linds loved the crab cakes and Luke ate a big bowl of the potatoes. Everything was super easy to make (the green beans were a box of frozen Birds Eye veggies) and mashed potatoes aren't tough (I like to leave the skins on mine and sprinkle them with chives). Here's the recipe for the crab cakes:

Crab Cakes
16 oz. crab meat
1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
1 egg
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. mustard
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/2 c. breadcrumbs

  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except crab meat.
  2. Shape into cakes.
  3. Pan-fry 15 minutes, turning half-way through, until both sides are golden-brown and cooked through.
