You can double the amount if desired, 1-1/4 pounds of crabmeat should give you about 5-6 patties. You can omit the Old Bay seasoning and use seasoned salt instead, adjust all seasonings to taste. Please don't omit the tartar sauce (my Kittencal's Easy Tartar Sauce for tartar sauce works well) Plan ahead the patties need to chill for a about 2 hours before frying.

These were pretty good. I had a hard time getting them to stick together, I probably should've used two eggs because mine seemed a bit small. Two of my kids thought they were the greatest thing ever (probably because we called the Krabby Patties!). I used Tartar Sauce That Makes You Scream... Oh Yes! and served with Balsamic Tomato Couscous.
