I've heard that after you've made the crabcakes, that chilling them for two hours before baking them helps the flavors combine together better. Crabcakes are one of my favorite things to eat out, but I've never made them. Do let us know how they turn out.

I will. I think I'll have to make them next week though becuase all the recipies called for two cans of crabmeat and I only had one! The chilling part should come in handy though.

My DH makes them all the type when we have leftover steamed crabs. he starts with the recipe on the Old Bay container and then goes from there. the best way to cook them is to fry them. We always use to bake them but I made crab balls, little crabcakes, a couple of weeks ago and fried them. They were so good, so I asked him to please fry them. He did and they were out of this world.

Yeah I've fried them when I made them before. They had a tendency to fall apart as I recall, so I think the chilling first will be good.
