…..Crab Cakes that is…..Geez, get your mind out of the gutter and into the kitchen for some good cooking!

Crab Cakes are my favorite treat, not cheap, but then again, aren’t we worth what we put in our mouths?

I wanted to share this recipe because while most people are grilling out for the summer…I still find this recipe one of my favorites!

Bahhh. This is quick and easy and you’re mouth will thank you as you dive into these mouth watering treats!

Ingredients:

1 pound crabmeat, picked free of shells
1/3 cup crushed crackers (recommended: my choice, Ritz)
3 green onions (green and white parts), finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Dash cayenne pepper
Flour, for dusting
