This is a great meal for a luncheon or a light supper. Found this hand written in one of my put together cookbooks. Serve with a salad and lemon slices.

I couldn't see making these without Old Bay Seasoning - My Mother's family is from the eastern shore and they were always made with Old Bay there.....even when they just steam the crabs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place bread in bowl and cover with milk. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Squeeze out excess milk from bread and place in clean bowl. Add remaining ingredients to the bread mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.
  3. Shape mixture into thick pancakes. Cook in hot oil over medium heat , about 4 or 5 minutes or until nicely browned.
  4. Serve with fresh lemon.
  5. I place them on a paper towel for 1 minute to take away any extra oil.
