Potato Cakes With Crab


  • 1 lb. crab meat

Saute onion in butter; stir in flour then add the milk. Simmer and stir until thickened. In a mixing bowl, combine crabmeat, eggs, parsley and mashed potato. Add enough of the onion, flour and milk mixture to be able to form soft patties.

Deep fry until browned.

For an elegant presentation, serve with Hollandaise sauce.
