    This was a little out of my element, but it was quite tasty! It probably doesn't do well "leftover" so I'll have to wait until I'm hosting another party to make this again. (My roomate is allergic to crab!)

    The trick to the perfect patty is: once shaped, roll in breadcrumbs (or cracker-crumbs, or whatever crumbs u r using in the patty), re-frigerate for at least 1/2 hr before frying/baking....perfect every time!!! the trick is in the 're-frigerator'!!! lol...:)

    I had to cook the mixture before shaping into patties. May have been due to high elevation. They turned out pretty good.
