Maryland crabcakes

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Crabmeat; (backfin and/or lump)
1 large Egg
¼ cup Hellman's mayonnaise
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon Dry mustard
\N \N Saltine crackers
\N \N Oil and/or butter for frying

Pick out any shell from crabmeat and place crab in a large bowl.

In a small bowl mix egg, mayo, and seasonings. Pour over crabmeat and fold gently until blended. Crush the saltine crackers with your fingers into coarse crumbs. I don't actually measure, but use enough to help the mixture hold together, probably about half of a sleeve of crackers. Fold in the cracker crumbs gently. Cover bowl and chill until ready to cook.

Form into small patties (about 10 - 12) and fry in hot oil/butter 5 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve immediately.
