Maryland Lady Crab Cakes Recipe

1 pound Maryland crabmeat
1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 large egg (or 2 small)
About 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Margarine, butter or oil for frying

Remove all cartilage from crabmeat.
In a bowl mix breadcrumbs, egg, mayonnaise and seasoning. Add crabmeat and mix gently but thoroughly. If mixture is too dry, add a little more mayonnaise. Shape into 6 cakes.
Cook cakes in fry pan, in just enough fat to prevent sticking, until browned; about 5 minutes on each side.

Makes 6 crab cakes.

NOTE: If desired, crab cakes may be deep fried at 350 degrees F. 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned.

I absolutely LOVE crab cakes, and I have to say, the best crab cakes I've ever had were in Maryland:)
