Ingredients

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

1 1/2 tsp. finely chopped parsley

Dash each salt and black pepper

8 oz. (about 1 cup) canned lump crabmeat, drained

2 tbsp. finely chopped onion

2 tbsp. finely chopped celery

1 tsp. chopped garlic

2 tbsp. reduced-fat cream cheese

3 tbsp. (about 2 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1 tbsp. light mayonnaise

1 1/2 tsp. Hellmann's/Best Foods Dijonnaise (or another creamy mild Dijon mustard)

1/2 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp. light butter

Optional: additional Dijonnaise (for dipping), lemon wedges (for squirting)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a medium-large bowl, combine breadcrumbs, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Add crabmeat, onion, celery, and garlic. Mix until uniform.

In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add egg, mayo, Dijonnaise, lemon juice, and butter. Whisk until smooth and uniform. Fold into crabmeat mixture.

Evenly form mixture into 4 balls, and place on the baking sheet, evenly spaced. Flatten each one into a patty about 1-inch thick. Bake for 8 minutes.

Carefully flip patties. Bake until firm, lightly browned, and cooked through, about 8 more minutes.
