If you’re thinking about making an appetizer for a holiday party, you have to try this one! It’s incredibly easy to prepare, but elegant enough for a party. The best part is kids AND adults love them. Each little bite is packed with big flakes of sweet crab meat, has just a bit of tang from the lemon juice and a crispy texture from the bread crumbs. I actually first created this recipe for Good Bite recently and it was a big success with them. If you want a few extra tips, check out the video here on Good Bite

I made these for dinner last week and Kenya had a ball dipping them in the lemon aioli and them eating them up one after another. Whether you make these for friends or just serve them to your family, I promise everyone will be impressed by your culinary creation.

    1. I tried making these crabcakes and, while the flavor was great, mine completely fell apart in the pan. Any ideas on how to make it stick a little bit better?

    2. I was suggested this website via my cousin. I am now not positive whether or not this post is written by way of him as no one else know such specific approximately my difficulty. You’re wonderful! Thank you!
