Crab Patties Recipe

“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.
