Crab Cake Sandwiches Recipe

"While it's in the oven, I prepare Crab Cake Sandwiches." Yvonne continues. She originally created the golden cakes to use up some leftover crab, but you can make them anytime by simply using convenient canned crab. "Alan loves them," she notes. "I've served them to family and friends, and they always ask for the recipe. "I've also used the crab mixture to stuff mushroom caps and bake them as an appetizer."

"I tried this recipe with a couple of alterations. I didn't have dry mustard so I used prepared and instead of green peppers I used red and yellow. I also chopped up shrimp and added them. Delicious."
