OLD BAY® Seasoning

Helping seafood everywhere reach it's full flavor potential.

Trivia players, take note: this is the original recipe that appeared on the back of the OLD BAY® can. (It’s a keeper.) Baking powder makes the crab cakes light and fluffy, while OLD BAY Seasoning adds personality. Serves four lucky folks.



2 slices dried bread, crusts removed
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon McCormick® Parsley Flakes
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon OLD BAY® Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 pound lump crabmeat



In a large bowl, break bread into small pieces. Moisten with milk.

Add mayo, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, baking powder, OLD BAY, salt, egg and crabmeat. Mix lightly and shape into patties. If time permits, refrigerate patties 30 minutes to help keep them together when cooking.

Broil or fry until golden-brown on both sides.
