So the other day after running errands, I decided to stop at the grocery store in the nearby fancy neighborhood. I was thrilled to death when I saw blue crab meat in the seafood department and so I asked for a pound.

I kept thinking that my bill seemed a little high. Then tonight I pulled out the crab meat to start cooking. That's when I noticed the label. They had charged ten times as much as they should have per pound! I threw the package of crab meat into a bag and grabbed my receipt. The manager decided that I could have it for free since I had had to return to the store.

So yeah, that's a crab cake sandwich. Before I topped it with some cole slaw. And some hot sauce. I called my mom the other day to ask for the recipe. Turns out hers is a slight variation of the one you find on the side of Old Bay seasoning.

Crab Cakes

1 pound crab meat (I used regular blue crab but blue crab lump is the preferred way to go.)
1/4 small bell pepper, finely diced
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup of bread crumbs

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Form into patties. Lightly coat patties in additional bread crumbs. Fry in oil over medium high heat until browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
