Grandma's Crab Cakes

The outside of these crab cakes are crispy and the inside is filled with tons of crabmeat. I love the different textures and flavors. I actually double the recipe to serve two people because what the recipe calls for here is not enough.

Ingredients

  • 1

    pound lump crabmeat

  • 8

    saltine crackers, crushed

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    tablespoon mustard

  • 1

    tablespoon greek yogurt (her recipe called for mayonnaise, I was out)

  • Pinch of cayenne pepper

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1

    tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a bowl except oil and stir until thoroughly combined. Heat a skillet on medium heat and add olive oil. While it’s heating, form the crab mixture into small patties – you will get about 5 to 6 cakes. Place them in the skillet and cook until lightly golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
