Crab Cakes Extraordinaire

Crab Cakes Extraordinaire

One of my favorite things in all the whole wide world is crab cakes!  Delish for a main dish meal, and equally delish on a sandwich!  The problem is that most crab cake recipes include mayonnaise and carb heavy fillings.

That’s why in true Unconventional Foodie fashion I’m delighted to bring you my Crab Cakes Extraordinaire!

This delish recipe is found on page 85 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.

Don’t miss out on all the yummy goodness found in Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie cookbook! After all,…EVERY day is a holiday!
