      Reviewed for ZWT III. These crab burgers were excellent! Very easy to make and the whole family enjoyed eating them - even my DS who is only 5 years old and normally won't even look at crab meat let alone eat it :) Thank You!

      I love these crab cakes! I made 6 of these today to pack in lunches. I never have been very good at making crab cakes but I think putting them in the fridge really helps them stay together more. Im not sure how many slices of bread I used since I used fresh bread crumbs I had pre made. I dont like shrimp or tartar sauce so I just topped mine with bread, but everyone else loved the tartar sauce. Excellent burger! Made for ZWT 3!

      The flavors in this burger were great. I also had a challenge keeping the burger from falling apart. I also felt that the bread overwhelmed the crab (we tend to be purists and not use many fillers with our crab). I didn't have all the fillings on hand and that may have made a significant contribution here. Next time I'll have everything available. Thanks!
