Things To Grab

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, crackers, 2/3 cup mayonnaise, bell pepper, basil, lemon juice and Old Bay seasoning. Add crabmeat; mix well to break up crab meat. Divide into 20 balls and shape each into a 3-inch patty.
    3. In a shallow dish, combine panko bread crumbs and cheese. Press onto both sides of each patty.
    4. Working in batches, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook patties for 4 minutes or until brown, turning once. Transfer crab cakes to prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Keep warm until ready to serve.
    5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together remaining 1/3 cup mayonnaise, garlic, and basil paste. Serve cakes with mayonnaise mixture. If desired, garnish with basil leaves and lemon slices.
