    Made these last night as an appetizer, filled a 24 count mini muffin pan and baked at 350 for 20 minutes. Substituted panko for the bread. Devine!

    Perfect Maryland crab cakes! The only thing that I added to the mix was a little Worcestershire sauce.

    Made this recipe tonight from fresh blue crabs caught yesterday here in FL. Only had about 3/4 pound of lumps from 30 crabs, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. They turned our perfwct! Wouldn't change a thing. :-)
