Recipe is quick and easy to fix. This came from my mother, she makes it often on the island.
- 1 lb crabmeat
- 1 1⁄2 cups leftover mashed potatoes or 1 1⁄2 cups instant mashed potatoes
- 1⁄3 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 egg, scrambled
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- Mix all together as a hash and fry in oil until browned on both sides.
- Great for breakfast with eggs or main meal.
- Can substitute fish for crab.
These were very good and a bit of a challenge. I had to substitute chopped steamed shrimp for the crab which made it a bit more difficult to get the cake out of the pan whole - my fault, not the recipe. I took a chance that what you meant was a raw egg beaten, not scrambled and cooked. I thought you needed the raw egg to hold the filling together. This goes in my Faves Seafood cookbook. Thanks Dude, can't wait to make this with crab!
