Thanks to stuffing mix, these yummy crab cakes stay crispy golden on the outside and moist and fluffy on the inside! I got this recipe from a Kraft Foods magazine.

I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but it was a great idea! I was in the mood for crab cakes, I had canned crab, and I just happened to have leftover stuffing. I used a combination of mayo (less than in recipe, i don't really like mayo), pickle juice, chopped pickles and red onion and then dipped in bread crumbs and fried in spray. Delish and quick! Thanks for the great idea!
