How to Make It

Drain crab meat and flake with a fork, picking out any shell or cartilage.

Put crabmeat in a bowl. Add the mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper, green onions, dry mustard, pepper and salt. Blend in the egg whites.

Shape into 4 cakes about 4 inches across. Place cracker crumbs on a plate and season with salt and pepper.
