The hospital I work at occasionally will post recipes. This is one that was posted last year. I have made it several times and they are wonderful. Since they are baked, the fat calories are reduced. I have used the "fake" crab meat also and it does not affect the outcome.

How to Make Baked Crab Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Toss the crab meat with the lemon juice and refrigerate.
  2. Saute onion with butter and olive oil over medium heat until barely limp, about one minute. Transfer to a small bowl to cool.
  3. Mix together Old Bay, garlic, tarragon, cayenne pepper, mayonnaise, crackers, and beaten egg. Add the onions and mix well. Fold gently into the crab meat. Divide into 6 portions.
  4. Roll the crab mixture into 6 large balls and place in a buttered baking dish 2" apart. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and flatten each ball a little. Sprinkle each one first with the cheese and then with paprika. Broil to toast the cheese a bit. Serve hot.
