For Those Who Like Their Crabcakes With A Little More Spice:

Maggie’s Signature Crabcakes are made with just enough filler to hold the crabcake together. Minimum handling helps to keep the large lumps from breaking up. All cooking is to get the internal temperature of the crabcake between 140F and 160F, and brown to maximize flavor. Spicing used for the crabcake is to accentuate the delicate taste of the crab meat, not cover it up. Thank you for ordering our Crabcakes online.
