Sponge Bob isn't the only one that knows how to make Crabby Patties!

I don't want to toot my own horn but, BEEP BEEP! Two words, Yum and Yum! One rainy afternoon led to these delicious delights!  Now, I'll tell you what you'll need to show Sponge Bob who really makes a great crabby patty!!!

Items Needed:
  • Panko Breadcrumbs
  • Crushed red pepper
  • onion powder
  • two 6 oz cans of crab meat
  • minced garlic
  • your favorite seasoning 
  • 1 egg
  • bowl
  • fork
  • oil
  • pan for frying
  1. Empty two cans of crab meat into a bowl
  2. add 3/4 of a  cup of bread crumbs
  3. add 1 egg, mix together with fork
  4. add 1 tbsp of minced garlic to the mixture
  5. sprinkle in your favorite seasonings and onion powder (or add real onions that you have previously sauteed if you prefer.)
  6. Take one heaping spoonful of your crab mixture and roll into a ball. Flatten into a small patty
  7. Once you have formed all patties, place saran wrap over plate and allow to set in fridge for 15 minutes
  8. once your patties have set, heat oil in pan, fry (more like lightly saute) patties for about 1 minute on each side (until Golden Brown.)
  9. Upon removing patties from oil, place on a plate covered with a paper towel to drain excess oil
Note: If you are using your crab cakes as an appetizer, ENJOY. Other wise serve on a plate with your favorite sides for a lunch or dinner option!
Mashed sweet potatoes, broccoli, and my crab cakes.

If you'd like a dipping sauce, simply mix mayo with crushed red pepper.(Adds a nice spicy kick.)

Thanks for reading friends! 
That's my 2 cents!



  1. This sounds delish!!! I will definitely be picking up the ingredients on my next grocery store run.

  2. Really want to try your recipe, but I haven't found canned crab yet here in the Jamaican bush :-(

  3. I made your crabby patties last night with baked sweet potatoes and mixed veggies. YUM!!!! I even made your sauce, which I'm going to start making more often with other things too.

  4. Tianna Mae, I am so happy the recipe turned out well for you! Wahoo! There are definitely other dishes that the spicy mayo will taste delicious with!
