Crab Cake Sandwiches

This is a very tasty alternative to lunchtime sandwiches. Wonderful when served on onion sandwich rolls with coleslaw.

These crab cakes are delightful! The sweetness of the crabmeat is very apparent in each bite. Thanks to the cayenne and horseradish, there's a bit of heat but the crab cakes are not overly spicy. It's not the traditional seasoning, but we loved it. Great for lunch or a light meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
