Crab Cakes

I've been meaning to share this awesome crab cake recipe for a while now and decided that now is a good time....since I'm in the mood to make them again!  I got this recipe from my good friend Jennifer....after hearing about her hubby Tim's cooking skills and famous crab cakes, I grilled her for the recipe and she was kind enough to share his great grandma's recipe for them.  They are so easy and simple.  I like my crab cakes with a LOT of crab and NOT a lot of breading and these were the perfect ratio.  The recipe called for one pound of jumbo lump crab, but it's pretty pricey (and I'm pretty cheap), so I opted for 1/2 pound jumbo lump crab and 1/2 pound of the less expensive crab claw meat....both found in the seafood section.  These crab cakes are excellent as an appetizer or as a main course....Kevin and I ate them for dinner with a salad.  Next time I make them I'm going to try and find an easy sauce to go along with them.
