Reviews forCrab Patties
"I love this recipe, but don't serve it with the english muffin."
"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."
