How to make crab puppies

Crab puppies is a great stand-alone appetizer and even better when sipping a great wine or a nice cold glass of beer! 



  • 1 lb crab meat – picked over
  • 1 cup ritz crackers – crushed
  • 2 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp old bay seasoning
  • 1 egg – beaten
  • 2 tbs fresh parsley -chopped
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tb worcestershire sauce


  1. Place crab meat in a mixing bowl. And pick over for any loose sells.  Add crushed crackers, Old Bay Seasoning and parsley and mix well. 
  2. In a separate bowl, combine egg, mustard, lemon juice, Worcestershire Sauce and whip with a whisk until smooth and a bit frothy.  Pour over the crab meat and crackers and mix gently to not break up the crab meat too much. 
  3. Mold into golf ball size and place on a cookie sheet.  If time allows cool in refrigerator for about 20 to set. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 350º for about 30 minutes.  Drizzle with melted butter and cool slightly. 
  4. These are great served plain or with a sauce made of ketchup and horseradish.  

NOTE: We have made a meal with just these tasty Puppies by adding a side of creamy cole slaw.
