Crabby Rice Patties


Chicken broth
1 cup instant rice, uncooked
2 cans (6 oz. each) crabmeat, drained, cleaned
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup butter
Old Bay seasoning, to taste
2 eggs
Panko bread crumbs
Cooking Oil

Cook rice in chicken broth according to cooking directions on package of rice.  Stir in crabmeat, cheese, butter and Old Bay.  Add eggs.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.  Heat oil in large frying pan.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Pour Panko into a shallow bowl.  Shape into patties, press patties into Panko to coat.  Fry until browned on both sides.  Place on a baking sheet covered with foil.  Bake 20 minutes.

Tips/Changes - I mixed everything but the eggs so I could taste my mixture as I went along.  This way you can add as much or as little of the Old Bay.  You can add more or less cheese, I used cheddar but you can change that to fit your own taste.  I used plain Panko bread crumbs but I'm sure seasoned would be good.  I haven't tried it yet but I want to give this a try using Salmon instead of crab.  Bet that one will be good too.
