Delicious Crab Cakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You may use imitation crab in place of the fresh crabmeat due to cost reasons, I have made these using imitation and it was still wonderful --- I have listed a honey-mustard sauce on the bottom to serve with the crab cakes if desired but these are just as good served alone! --- plan ahead there is a 1 hour freezing time.

These crab cakes turned out really flavorful. I used imitation crab and added some dry breadcrumbs as they seemed so wet. They still were very delicate, but the seasonings were just right. I added about a tsp. of horseradish too as suggested by others. Thanks for posting!
