Pairs Well With
This was my Mom’s recipe. There is no bread/potato filler. It’s solid crab meat.
I often make this into 1” balls instead of cakes. They are good hot, warm or cold.
These freeze nicely and are best reheated in a hot skillet.
For a special treat, try them as the 'meat' in Eggs Benedict.
