    Parrot Head Mama's Note:

    Got this recipe from a cookbook my husband & I picked up on our honeymoon in the Keys. A few years later, stuck in snowy, land-locked IA where we live, we decided to make up a few batches of these with some Rum Runners and have a "Wish We Were in Key West" dinner party with a few friends.

      I'm so glad I finally got around to trying these wonderful crabcakes! I used king crab and also used probably a bit more breadcrumbs than called for because I was having a bit of difficulty getting the patties to hold together. I served them with Easy Horseradish Mustard Sauce which was the perfect sauce for these crabcakes. We enjoyed them so much! Thank you!

      Wow ~ these were excellent! First off, I left out the bacon since DH will not eat any recipe with bacon in it. Other than that, I made as posted and I don't think we missed the bacon flavor at all. I made the cakes small ~ I got 14 out of the recipe ~ and I served with my own cocktail sauce. Thesse will be made quite often in our house ~ thanks for posting a keeper!

      This recipe deserves alot more stars than I can give! My DH devoured these! I was able to make six cakes from this recipe, I guess I made them smaller than I was supposed to. Definitly making these again this week. I made a cocktail sauce with horseradish and ketchup to serve with the cakes. Thanks Parrot Head Mama for a delicious recipe!
