I made these for my hubby who loves crab cakes. He said these are the best he has ever had. I got the recipe out of my Betty Crocker Cookbook. You can make these OAMC by making the patties, bread with crumbs, place several in a freezer bag with parchment paper in between each patty and freeze. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and cook in oil as directed. These take less than a 1/2 hour from beginning to end. Hope you enjoy.
