Original Old Bay Crab Cakes

This is the original recipe off the Old Bay Seasoning tin.  A keeper!

Original Old Bay Crab Cakes 

Serves:  4

  • 2 slices dried bread, crusts removed
  • 1 Tbs. milk
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 pound lump crabmeat
  • vegetable oil


1. In a large bowl, break bread into small pieces. Moisten with milk.

2. Add mayo, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, baking powder, Old Bay, salt, egg and crabmeat. Mix lightly and shape into 4 patties. Refrigerate patties 30 minutes to help keep them stay formed when cooking.

3. Fill your frying pan with about 1/4″ vegetable oil. Over medium-high heat, fry until golden-brown on both sides. I usually flip every 1 minute to avoid over frying.

Mike’s comment’s:

These are Maryland (Eastern Shore) style crab cakes. They are typically served either plain or with mayonnaise. If you want a spicier dipping sauce try this:

Spicy Remoulade Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup horseradish
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs. hot sauce
  • 1 tsp. paprika

In a medium-bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
