I used Old Bay seasoning instead of the salt and pepper and didn't measure the breadcrumbs, just added them until the texture was right. Server on Hawaiian rolls as crab cake sliders with some tartar sauce. These were delicious!!

Way too salty, unable to form patties because it was so runny. Poured like batter.

This is NOT a review. WHY are some reviewers complaining about runny mixture? Egg size used different? What size of egg should be used?

The first time I made it with immitation crab and it was tasty. Second time I made it with real canned crab and it turned out good too.

Very runny, Took so many breadcrumbs to hold the mixture together that's all I could taste. Way too much salt, too.

I followed this recipe exactly and wondered about the 1/3 cup dried bread crumbs, the mixture was very runny and all in all I believe I went through at least 1/1/2 cups of crumbs to get the job done. Flavor was just ok to me.

These were sooooo good! I used some old bay seasoning in the mix and a drop of Tabasco. I also used spicy brown mustard instead of reg prepared.

Our family really liked it. I used Panko for bread crumbs, and added chopped cilantro. Yummy!
