I placed my personal stamp on my Aunt Ellie's crab cake recipe by changing up some of her ingredients. They're served with a tart and tangy creamy sauce. You can serve them on an appetizer spread or as a terrific first-course at a formal dinner.—Michelle Critchell, Moon, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cans (6 ounces each) lump crabmeat, drained

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and chill until serving. For crab cakes, in a large bowl, combine the egg, cheese, bread crumbs, mayonnaise, onion, parsley, mustard, seafood seasoning and pepper. Fold in crab. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
