Thatbaby is off from preschool this week for Spring Break. Which wrecks havoc on Thatboy and my schedule. He took the first part of the week, I took the second, and Thatmom is on toddler-duty until he's back to school next Wednesday.
Both are easy enough substitutions to Passover. The best crabcakes are light on breadcrumbs anyway, and matzoah meal is a pretty good substitute. Hushpuppies are a little more difficult, since the main ingredient is cornmeal. I used a sweet potato base instead, mixed with matzoh meal, green onions, and eggs. I think these have a little way to go. I used my food processor to shred the sweet potato, but I think it needs to be a bit finer consistency, like pureed or grated. We definitely liked the taste of the hush puppies, just not the consistency.
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup crab
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 cup matzoh meal
- canola oil
- Combine mayo, eggs, green onions, Old Bay, and Worcestershire sauce.
- Stir in the crab, green onions, and matzoh meal. Form into patties (This made 8 for me)
- Heat 1 inch of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook each patty 1-2 minutes per side, until browned.
