Crab Cakes

These were REALLY good. Another Hungry Girl Recipe
  • Two 6-oz. cans lump crabmeat, drained
  • 2 slices light (35 calories per slice), lightly toasted
  • One wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
  • 2 tbsp. minced
  • 1 tbsp. fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh curly parsley
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. imitation butter (I use Promise Heart Smart, 5cals/TBSP)
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • dash hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco)
  • dash salt, or more to taste
  • dash black pepper, or more to taste
  • Butter-flavored nonstick spray
  • Optional: additional Dijon mustard(for dipping), lemon wedges
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Tear lightly toasted bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Pulse until reduced to breadcrumbs, and then transfer to a medium bowl.
  3. Add crabmeat, parsley, garlic, salt, minced onion and black pepper to the bowl, and gently mix until combined, and set aside.
  4. Break cheese wedge into pieces and place in a small bowl. Add egg substitute, mayo, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, melted imitation butter, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce. Whisk until smooth, and pour over the crabmeat mixture. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the liquid mixture into the crabmeat mixture. If you like, add additional salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Prepare a medium-large baking dish by spraying with butter-flavored nonstick spray. Take 1/4 of the crab cake mixture from the bowl. Gently form it into a ball, place it in the baking dish, and flatten it into a cake about 1-inch thick -- repeat with remaining crab mixture so that you have 4 cakes in the baking dish.
  6. Bake in the oven for 14 - 15 minutes, until the cakes are slightly firm and cooked through. Remove carefully from the dish and serve with additional Dijon mustard for dipping and/or lemon wedges for squirting.
