Yummy and healthy! What's not to like? Even fooled my Cheetos lovin' husband into eating his veggies. I used dried bread crumbs
and the texture was perfect. I'm from Maryland so I'm hard to fool when it comes to crab cakes. Not JUST like a crab cake, but yummy good.

These were delicious. Much better than other similar recipes I've tried. It didn't work well when I doubled the batch though (became doughy) so when I double it again I would use only 3 c. of bread crumbs and reduce the Old Bay to 1 1/2 tsp. Terrific as written though.

Ive made these before, but used flower instead of bread crumbs. They are delicious, but very messy!!! My whole entire family love them.
