    gailanng's Note:

    We've an abundance of crabs in coastal Louisiana. I know no one who has ever turned one of these down. Chill time not included. NOTE: For all the years that I've made these crab cakes, just recently I've used cracker crumbs in place of the breadcrumbs in the recipe and for the exterior coating and think that I might perfer that even more so.

      Yummo! I thought the consistency as posted was perfect but what I did do to make them easy to handle after refrigeration was form them using egg rings, coated with crumbs, refrigerated a bit longer and flipped with care until a crust had formed. I always prefer that method rather than trying to add extra binding because it keeps things light and fluffy, this recipe was no exception and had a beautiful fluffy texture when cooked. I went with cajun and breadcrumbs to coat and they were great served along with a salad and dollop of cottage cheese.

      These were by far the best crab cakes I have ever made. I made exactly as written. Thanks for the great recipe.

      We thought these were great! This was my first try at crab cakes and they came out very well. As Lori Mama said mine too needed some more breadcrumbs to hold together. I did halve the recipe to make for two. Served with deviled eggs as a starter and coleslaw as a side dish. I was planning on poached pears for dessert but we got too full! Thanks again. Made for Potluck Tag.
