Crab cake Eggs Benedict



1 lb lump crabmeat
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
4 English muffins, split and toasted
8 eggs
Hollandaise sauce
Chopped chives for garnish



In a bowl, mix together the crabmeat, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, egg, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay seasoning, salt, and pepper until well combined.

Form the crab mixture into 8 patties and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake the crab cakes for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Make Hollandaise sauce (see recipe below)

While the crab cakes are baking, poach the eggs in a pot of simmering water for about 3 minutes or until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny.

Toast and butter English muffins

To assemble, place a toasted English muffin half on a plate, top with a crab cake, a poached egg, and a spoonful of hollandaise sauce. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Garnish with chopped chives and serve hot. Enjoy your delicious Crabcake Eggs Benedict!
