Combine crab flakes, stuffing mix, water and butter. Cook according to pkg. directions. Be careful, this mixture will be hot.
Then add seafood seasoning, instant potato flakes, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce. Mix well. Add plain bread crumbs and mix well. Then lightly beat the egg and mix into patty mixture, work fast to avoid the egg from cooking. Shape into 8 nice size patties. Dip in flour.
Heat a large frying pan with oil (use enough oil to just cover the patties) cook till golden brown about 5 minutes then carefully turn over to brown the other side. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot with coleslaw and French fries or on a bun with lettuce and tomatoes. Also really good served cold.
