1 lb Maryland crabmeat
1 c Bread crumbs, Italian
1 lg Egg
1/4 c Mayonnaise
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Pepper
1 ts Worcestershire sauce
1 ts Mustard, dry
Margarine, butter or oil
Remove all cartilage from crabmeat. In a bowl, mix breadcrumbs, egg,
[mayonnaise and seasonings. Add crabmeat and mix gently but
thoroughly. If mixture is too dry, add a little more mayonnaise.
Shape into 6 cakes.
Cook cakes in fry pan, in just enough fat to prevent sticking, until
browned; about 5 minutes on each side.
Note: If desired, crab cakes may be deep fried at 350F 2 to 3
minutes, or until browned.
