OLD BAY® Seasoning

Helping seafood everywhere reach its full flavor potential.

Trivia players, take note: this is the original recipe that appeared on the back of the OLD BAY® can. (It's a keeper.) Baking powder makes the crab cakes light and fluffy, while OLD BAY Seasoning adds personality. Serves four lucky folks.



2 slices dried bread, crusts removed


1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon McCormick® Parsley Flakes

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon OLD BAY® Seasoning

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 pound lump crabmeat



1. In a large bowl, break bread into small pieces. Moisten with milk.

2. Add mayo, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, baking powder, OLD BAY, salt, egg and crabmeat. Mix lightly and shape into 4 patties. If time permits, refrigerate patties 30 minutes to help keep them together when cooking.

3. Broil or fry until golden-brown on both sides.
