    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl mix together mayonnaise, both mustards, a generous dash of hot sauce, horseradish, and the egg.
    3. 3
      Gently stir in the saltines and crabmeat.
    4. 4
      You may form the crabcakes immediately, however allowing the mixture to sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour will make the shaping easier.
    5. 5
      Divide the mixture into 4-6 large crabcakes, and place on a lightly oiled or nonstick baking sheet. (Or make to your desired size - I use a 1/4 cup measure - and adjust your cooking time appropriately ).
    6. 6
      Bake for 15-20 minutes , or until a light golden brown.
    7. 7
      Serve immediately.

      I chose to make these the Baltimore way, and we omitted the horseradish as it wrecks havoc on my tummy. They came out so good! I love Legal Seafood anything, and this recipe was no exception! I added some lemon before serving, which in my book was the icing on the cake. I also sprinkled with Old Bay on top. Loved these little buggers!
