"These crab cakes are just the best. I make these often at home, and I make a smaller appetizer size for parties. They are always a hit. They are easy and delicious. I won't eat crab cakes out anymore! Serve with fresh squeezed lemon and tartar sauce!"

This is by far one of the best crab cake recipes I've tried. I make it for all family holidays in bite sized appetizers. I like to use panko breadcrumbs rather than regular for the outside crumb...

Absolutely delicious! I added real onions instead of onion powder plus some garlic powder and didn't add as much oil. The one thing that I would suggest though is to definetly freeze them before...
