Best tasting crab cakes ever!

4 slices white bread with crusts trimmed, or 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs, or 6 saltines, crumbled    
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard    
1/2 teaspoon Chesapeake-style seafood seasoning        
1/4 teaspoon Acícent    
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound crabmeat, shell and cartilage removed


Mix bread crumbs, mustard, seafood seasoning, and Acícent together and set aside.

In another bowl, gently fold together egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and bread crumb mixture.  Add crabmeat, and shape into individual cakes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to avoid breaking apart when cooked.

Place under broiler and broil until brown, or fry in oil until brown and drain on paper towels before serving.  Serves 4Ė6.
