Crab Cake Burger Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Crab Cake Burgers

Just because the weather has started to turn chilly doesn't mean you can't enjoy burgers. Simply griddle the patties inside instead of charring on the outdoor grill. For an alternative to the classic beef burger, consider canned crabmeat. This recipe makes an effortless and flavorful crab patty by combining chives, panko, and Dijon mustard with spices. If you're pressed for time, serve with a store-bought tartar sauce; or take this burger to another level by offering it with a homemade lemon-garlic aioli. Read on for the recipe.
