Baby "crab" cakes

What you need:

6oz crab - in a can
1 egg
2 tbs mayo
1/4 cup saltines - crushed
Old bay seasoning
Onion powder
Karen's secret sauce - recipe follows

Open the can of crab and drain the water. Put in medium bowl.
Mix egg in a separate bowl. Add egg, mayo and crushed saltines to the crab and mix but don't over mix.

Form into mini crab cakes - about the size of a quarter. You should get around 16 cakes.

Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning, onion power, salt and pepper over the crab cakes- just one side for now. Put crab cakes in refrigerator for at least an hour to become firm.
After the hour or longer turn the crab cakes over and add all the seasonings to the cakes.
Add a little butter to each of the Babycakes wells. Not too much - you don't want them greasy. Just enough so they don't stick and they get a nice golden brown to them.

Add the crab cakes to the Babycakes cupcake maker and cook about 7-10 minutes. Turn over as needed so they don't burn but brown nicely on each side.
Take out and enjoy!
