Super Surprise

So our Super Bowl plans got derailed, but when life gives you lemons, what do you do? You cut them into quarters and squeeze them onto to some crabcakes, that's what you do!

I've never made crabcakes before, and as Apples has been craving them for a month now, I figured why not give them a try?

I kept the recipe pretty simple. A lot of crab, and not a whole lot of anything else. I broiled them instead of fried them, and surprise, I think they came out pretty good. Not greasy, but nice and firm and very flavorful. I didn't even need any sauce with them, which is rare for me because usually I find a way to drown things in a sauce.

Super Bowl Crabcakes:

1 lbs: Crab meat (I used backfin because it was cheapest)
1 tablespoon: Mayo
1 tablespoon: Old Bay
1: Egg
1/3 Cup: Panko breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon: Dill
1/4: Large lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste

Scoop them out using a 1/2 cup measuring cup and flatten them on a baking sheet. Broil for 7-9 minutes, or until golden brown.
