Jillena's Crab Hush Puppies

"Quick and easy appetizer! Similar to a Southern hush puppies but made with delicious real crab meat! This is really good served with a hot cheese dip or with tarter and cocktail sauce. My husband will stand by waiting for them to finish cooking to eat them right away."
