Delicious Crab Cakes

Did you Know?

Eating crab cakes is part and parcel of any trip to Maryland, where you’ll find them fried and served on bread as sandwiches or baked and broiled as a main dish. Here’s a delicious version you can enjoy at home.

What You Need
2  large eggs or 2  egg substitutes
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 package imitation crab or 8 ounces of lump crab
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 package Simply Organic Ranch Dip Mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs then add next four ingredients. Add in crab meat.

In a separate bowl, blend bread crumbs and Ranch Dip Mix. Add dry ingredients to crab meat mix and stir well.

Shape mix into cakes about 3/4-inch thick and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Place onto greased baking sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes on each side.

Chef Suggestions
Serve as a meal over fresh leaf lettuce or turn into a sandwich.

As an appetizer, offer a choice of tartar, cocktail sauce or a fruit salsa.

Squeeze extra lime juice on crab cakes once baked.
