Crab Cakes

Hubby's birthday was over the long weekend and I was more than happy to make whatever he wished for dinner.  For, at least, the last five years I have been making Hubby crab cakes for his birthday and this year was no different.  Simply crab cakes that highlight's the crab and Old Bay.  No less!

Crab Cakes

1 pound crab meat
1 egg
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (really mayo, none of that fake stuff!)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijoin mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay (and only Old bay will do!!!)
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
the juice from half a lemon

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except for crab meat.

Gently fold in the crab meat, being careful not to break up the lumps. 

Shape into cakes. I use an ice cream scoop since I think it helps keep them all the same size.

Bake at 375°F degrees for 15-18 minutes or until evenly brown.

I know that there is nothing fancy about these crab cakes but I promise that their simplicity is what makes them special.
