    1      pound         crab meat -- Maryland Blue Crab
    1      cup           Italian bread crumbs
    1      large         egg
      1/4  cup           mayonnaise
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
    1      teaspoon      Worcestershire sauce
    1      teaspoon      dry mustard
                         margarine, butter or oil -- for frying
 
 Remove all cartilage from crabmeat.  In a bowl, mix breadcrumbs, egg, 
 mayonnaise and seasonings.  
 
 Add crabmeat and mix gently but thoroughly.  If mixture is too dry,  add 
 a 
 little more mayonnaise.
 
 Shape into 4-6 cakes.
 
 Cook cakes in fry pan, in just enough fat to prevent sticking, until 
 browned; about 5 minutes on each side.
 
 If desired may be deep fried at  350 degrees;  2-3 minutes.
