over lump crab meat is
2 Teaspoon(s) Old bay seasoning
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Ground thyme
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Dry mustard
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Ground white pepper
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Cayenne pepper powder
3 Tablespoon(s) Mayonnaise
2 Teaspoon(s) Worcestershire sauce

In a large bowl gently fold all the ingredients together adding the
bread crumbs last. Try not to break the crab meat up into small
pieces. Depending on how moist the crab mixture is you may want to use
less. The less bread crumbs you can use as a binder the better the
crab cakes are in my opinion. I would not add more than a quarter cup.
Chill the mixture covered 1 or 2 hours in the refrigerator and they
will form a better cake when you are ready cook them. This is very
important. Not only will they form a better cake but the consistency
will be nicer. To cook use enough mixture to form a large silver
dollar sized cake and saute lightly in oil about 1/2 inch deep ( I
prefer a good olive oil ) until golden brown, turning once. These can
be served hot or cold as a main entree or appetizer. Makes about 12
cakes depending on the size. NOTES : Combination of recipes made
3/28/93-10/2/93-3/26/94 and lump meat when available. This is my
favorite crab cake as of this writing. I am beginning to use Japanese
Panko in my crab cakes as it seems to be lighter. (Japanese bread
