Daring Kitchen - Patties

Blog-checking lines:The Daring Cooks’ February 2012 challenge was hosted by Audax & Lis and they chose to present Patties for their ease of construction, ingredients and deliciousness! We were given several recipes, and learned the different types of binders and cooking methods to produce our own tasty patties!

We have several pattie recipes that we love.  Zucchini, corn, potato....  For this month's challenge I decided to make 2 different patties for one meal:  Crab cakes and Potato patties.  The potato ones are a repeat from the Daring Kitchen Tea challenge.  We loved them so much that we have added them to our regular repertoire.

I decided on crab cakes (something I don't even normally think that I like) at Hilary's suggestion because fresh Jonah crabs were on sale.  

 While the end result was amazing, the amount of work to clean 5 fresh crabs, to only yield enough meat for a half-dozen crab cakes, was too much.  Next time I would use frozen crab meat.

The potato patties are simply a mixture of potato, green onion, wasabé and horseradish.

The crab cakes were only covered in Panko crumbs, while the potato ones have flour then egg then Panko crumbs.

The both fried up at the same time making it easy to serve the meal all together without having to keep anything warm.

These tasted so go on their own that they didn't need any kind of sauce or dip to go with them.

Another successful challenge!
