Yummy Easy Crab Cakes

I made crab cakes for dinner last night. It was a new recipe and oh so good! I will share it…

2 cans of crab meat drained well (in the grocery store by the tuna, but usually on the top shelf)
1 egg
1 1/2 tablespoons of mayo (I used fat free)
1 tablespoon dijon or spicy brown mustard (I used spicy brown)
1/4-1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
Seasoned salt
2 tablespoons french friend onions crushed up(like the kind that goes on green been casserole)

Preheat oven to 400.

Beat egg with a hand mixer until frothy. Add in mayo and mustard. Pour over crab meat, add onions and seasoning. Add breadcrumbs until the mixture holds together. Depending on how much you drain your crab, it may take all of it. Ball them up (I made 4 smaller ones with mine…you could do 2 large). I dipped mine back into some bread crumbs for a crunchy coating. Its optional.

Lay on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove with a large spatula (they will try to hold on the pan). Enjoy!

PS. This comes from a healthy cooking cookbook and it says per serving (with the recipe making 2 servings) it has about 250 calories per serving. Not bad eh?
