“Based on a recipe from Guy Fieri’s book, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: an All-American Road Trip…With Recipes! This celebrates the A1 Diner in Gardiner, Maine. He says in its introduction: “These are loaded with crab, and even in a state that is famous for this dish, people come to Gardiner to track them down.” I haven’t tried this yet, although I am planning a trip up the road to Gardiner soon! :)”

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together crabmeat, corn, bell pepper, celery, onion, mayonnaise, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Gently fold in the beaten egg and 1 ½ cups of the cracker crumbs, taking care not to overwork the mixture.
  3. Place remaining 1 cup crumbs on plate or shallow bowl.
  4. Form crab mixture into 3-ounce patties, about 3-inches in diameter. Dip both sides of each patty into cracker crumbs, pressing gently to adhere crumbs.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and melt the butter. Cook crab cakes until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side.
  6. Serve.
