Crab/Cheddar Summertime Surprise Burgers

I know, I know the snow is still on the ground but I am just getting you prepared for the fun times ahead. It is always a good thing to be prepared.

We think these would make awesome sliders. This way you can change the toppings, add a salsa or two. Again…YUMMY


  • 1 lb. crab meat, drained
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 tbsp. melted, unsalted butter

Combine all these ingredients and make into 4 patties.

  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups panko crumbs

Mix the egg and  milk  together and set aside. Put the flour in another bowl and take the panko crumbs and lay them out on parchment paper. To assemble these delicious burgers, dredge each one in the flour, then the egg mixture and pat them all over with the panko crumbs and press gently so they adhere. Cover and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minuites.

Melt the butter in a skillet and cook each of the burgers for four minutes on each side. (Or use the bbq) Butter the buns, add mayo, a slice of cheddar cheese and now the surprise: Clean one stick of celery and peel one granny smith apple. Julienne both of these, sprinkle with some fresh lime juice to avoid browning and place a handful on each burger.

OMG! These are fantastic. Give it a try and you will want to do it again. The only way to improve this one is to crack open a bottle of perfectlychilled white wine. Enjoy!
