Recipe by For JTs Grandma

My grandaddy loved to cook and seafood was one of his favorites. This is his adaption from a Crab Cake recipe out of a 1956 North Carolina How to Cook Crabs Cookbook. I've made them his way and the cook book way, I like his best. This is the reason I won't even order crabcakes off of any menu - they just don't compare.
