Six well-seasoned crab cakes in only two steps. Sound too simple to be true? An OLD BAY┬« shortcut - a pre-measured package of all the right spices - makes scrumptious crab cakes just as tasty as grandma used to make. In about half the time.



1 package Old Bay Crab Cake Classic Mix

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 pound fresh crabmeat drained and cartilage removed

Old Bay Tartar Sauce



In a large bowl mix Crab Cake Mix and mayo. Add crabmeat and gently toss until well mixed. Shape into 6 patties.

Broil or fry 5 minutes per side or until browned turning once. Serve with tartar sauce. Call Grandma. Tell her you miss her.



Substitute for Fresh Crab: 2 (6-ounce cans) crabmeat, drained
