My Nanny's Recipes - #2

Pearce Hammond
We didn't have a nanny growing up. But we did have a woman in Maine who came and stayed with us at our summer house all through my childhood. She watched and cleaned the property all year long, too.  She had grown children of her own and before she retired, she would often bring her grandchildren out to spend weekends with us. She passed away, way too early, at only 58 and I am only one of many people who miss her beautiful spirit. She was never, not for one minute, not kind to me.

Nanny Evelyn's Crab Cakes
2 slices dried sourdough bread, crusts removed
Small amount of milk
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon McCormick® Parsley Flakes
1 teaspoon Old Bay® Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
1 pound fresh lump crabmeat

Break bread into small pieces in large bowl. Moisten with milk. Add mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce; mix well. Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly. Shape into 4 patties.
Refrigerate patties 30 minutes to help keep them together when cooking.
Broil or fry until golden-brown on both sides.
Is there something special your nanny made or makes for you? Share it here with a shout to her and how great she is/was!
