“I’ve been whipping up batches of these delicious patties for years,“ writes Paula Marchesi from Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania. “They’re always a hit—whether I serve them for brunch, lunch or a quick dinner to friends, family or even the grandkids.“ TIP: For a less filling alternative, serve the patties on lettuce and top with lemon wedges and sweet pickles instead of sliced tomato.

"I exchanged sour cream for the mayo ( our family is not crazy about hot mayo). I shaped into patties and baked instead of fried. Delicious! As like cyounce's review, we also call them "Crabbie Patties". LOL!"

"My family enjoyed these for a light dinner. I used hamburger buns since I didn't have English muffins on hand. Also left out the red pepper because I didn't have that either. I called them "Crabbie Patties" from the Spongebob cartoon & my son thought that was great."
