After massive amounts of cooking over the last few days, I was ready for something simple tonight.  The crab cake casserole is the perfect answer.  It only takes a few minutes to assemble and paired with some fresh tomatoes from the garden topped with Green Goddess dressing,  it is a lovely summer meal.  This is also a nice thing to make for someone else (my uncle was visiting last weekend and I sent him home with a crab cake casserole – he was most appreciative.)

Crabcake Casserole

  • 1 lb lump or jumbo lump crabmeat (on sale at Graul’s this week)
  • salt and pepper
  • 3/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup panko or bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 2 TB Mayonnaise
  • 3 TB melted butter
  • Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine crabmeat with salt, pepper, dry mustard and Old Bay and mix well in a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.  Add egg and stir.  Add panko, mayonnaise and melted butter and combine.  Tope with grated Parmesan cheese and bake for 20 -25 minutes until bubbly and browned on top.

Green Goddess Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/4 cup chives
  • 2 TB scallion greens
  • 1 1/2 tsp anchovy paste (use this even if you think you don’t like anchovies)  🙂
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.  Keeps well in the refrigerator.  We had a house sitter a few years ago who told us he loved the green stuff and put it on everything.  I thought it was brave to open an unlabeled jar of green stuff and start spreading it on things!

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
