What We're Eatin'


We've become crabby people.

Well. Crab lovin' people.

Two weeks ago I decided to make crab patties and they were amazing!
We've had it three times since then, and we all really enjoy it.

I don't exactly follow a recipe when I make them, so they've never turned out quite the same - I don't think you can really make it wrong though. Just add whatever sounds yummy to you, and then it has to turn out, right?! That's my theory...

So very loosely, this is what I use:

Imitation crab
Bell Peppers
Onion
Beans*
Spicy Mustard
Mayo
1 Egg (beaten)
Bread Crumbs
Salt
Black Pepper
Red Pepper

*The first time I made this I didn't add the beans, but we make large batches of beans every week, and the second time I made these I had some on hand so I mashed up about 2 cups of beans and added it and it added SO much "weight" to the patties and was really good.

-Cut the crab and peppers and onions into small pieces.
-Mash the beans up and add to the crab and peppers/onion.
-Add all the other ingredients to the bowl.
-Make into patties.
-Cook on lightly greased skillet for 3-4 minutes per side.

I serve it in toasted bread, and it is really tasty!

We were both pretty surprised that we enjoyed this meal! It is now a repeated favorite, and there are even prepared patties in our freezer for an easy, last minute meal.
