Baltimoreans take crab cakes very seriously! Luckily they are easy to make if you can find good blue crab meat. ALDI brioche bread makes the perfect soft crumbs to hold all that lush crab together.
1 lb jumbo lump blue crab meat
1 slice of ALDI Specially Selected Plain Sliced Brioche loaf, torn into tiny pieces
1/2 teaspoon good quality dry mustard (like Colman’s)
1-2 tablespoons Old Bay (available at Aldi)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Heat 1/2-inch canola oil in a large skillet. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, Old Bay, egg and mayo until smooth. Add the crab and bread. Form the mixture into 5-6, 3-4-inch, 1/2 inch thick patties. Place in the pan and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and heated through (about 5 minutes on each side). They are a little more fragile than some so take care to only flip them once. Drain on paper towel-lined plates and serve.
