I love crab cakes but I love them even more when served on a warm bun. Yum. Top them off with crispy bacon, lettuce, and tomato, and you have a real winner. These are so easy to prepare and the best part is you can make them ahead of time and keep the crab filling in the fridge for a couple of days.
They’ll even taste better the following day. I recommend serving these on warm fresh potato buns. I promise you’ll love these.
