Our recipe for homemade crabcakes is so delicious that you’ll want them all the time. Tender crabmeat is mixed with Sargento® Shredded Wisconsin Sharp White Cheddar Cheese to make the fluffiest of morsels. Serve these meaty patties with a side of tartar sauce at your next cocktail party and watch them disappear!

  • 2 pkgs. (6 oz. each) refrigerated lump crabmeat*
  • 3/4 cup (3 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Wisconsin Sharp White Cheddar Cheese
  • 3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 4 lemon wedges
  • Prepared tartar sauce (optional)
  1. In a medium bowl, combine crabmeat, cheese, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, egg white and green onions. Mix well; shape to form 4 large or 16 small patties about 1/2-inch thick. (At this point, patties may be covered and refrigerated up to 4 hours before cooking.)
  2. Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is hot. Add crab cakes; cook 4 minutes per side or until golden brown.
  3. Serve warm with lemon wedges and, if desired, tartar sauce.
