I've lived in Maryland for more than 50 years, so I know firsthand how much folks around here love crab cakes. I experimented with a number recipes and came up with this one. My family really likes it.


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound cooked crabmeat or 3 cans (6 ounces each) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the first 8 ingredients. Fold in crab.
  2. Place the bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Drop a third of the crab mixture into crumbs; shape into a 3/4-in. thick patty. Carefully turn to coat. Repeat with remaining crab mixture.
  3. In a large skillet, cook patties in butter for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
