Baked Crabby Patty


What's one of the first things that come to mind when someone mentions crab? For me, it's crab cakes. Or boiled crab. Whichever comes first. Yum!!!! The term "crabby patty" is commonly heard on the cartoon Spongebob Squarepants. These little patties are my crabby patties. A baked version. No oily aftertaste and the taste of the crab comes through. A simple mixture of chopped green onions, fresh fill, egg, paprika and panko. Baked it, then Sprinkle a little shredded cheese and melted it in the broiler for a minute or two. Placed it on a toasted slice of wheat baguette.

A simple easy meal. Two were enough for me. Though, I did make them nice and plump. So I guess that's why they filled me up good. Or was is the full bottle of water I had with it. Either way... I'm lovin' these crabby patties. Delicious.

Makes 4 palm-size patties.


Baked Crabby Patty

5-6oz crab meat
1 tsp fresh dill - chopped
2 green onion - chopped
1 Tbsp paprika
1 egg - beaten
1 1/2 c panko crumbs
1 tsp dry parsley
1/2 c shredded cheese (your choice)
Sour cream - optional

In a bow, combine the crab meat, dill, green onions, paprika, egg, parsley and 1/2 c of the panko crumbs.

Dive into 4 mini patties and let them chill for 30 min in the fridge to let them settle together.

Preheat your oven to 357˚F.

Take the patties from the fridge and coat them with the remaining panko crumbs.

Place on a lightly greased making sheet and bake for 10 min.

After 10min, turn your broiler on and transfer the baking sheet into the broiler to give the top an even browning.  Roughly 2-3 min. Then top with the shredded cheese and let it melt for 1 min.

Place on top of slices of french bread and top with a little sour cream.

Crab is one of those forgotten ingredients that we tend to only order when we're eating out. This looks like a great recipe. Quick and good for you!

Phyllis said...

Love that you baked these - perfect for someone like me who's never gentle enough when pan frying crab cakes (you should see the resulting mess when I try to flip them!)

Teanna said...

I LOVE crab cakes but never order them because they are often pan fried in so much oil! This would be perfect for me!

Jenn said...

Kim: I love crab. I wish I could have it everyday.

Phyllis: lol.

Teanna: Yeah, I'm the same way.
