1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup oil
Bottled tartar sauce
8 toasted sourdough bread slices
lettuce, tomato, other garnishes, as desired
In a medium bowl, mix together the crab flakes, Parmesan cheese, eggs, bell pepper, green onion, and Dijon mustard. Mix together well to combine and shape into 8 patties. Coat patties with the bread crumbs.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook approximately 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
To make into sandwiches spread tartar sauce on bread slices. Place two crab cakes on a bread slice, add garnishes, if using, and top with a second bread slice to make 4 double meat sandwiches. Cakes can also be eaten as an entee instead of sandwiches.
