These Gluten-Free Maryland Crab Cake Sliders are fun party food and perfect for Super Bowl entertaining.
I was born and raised in Maryland so I grew up eating crabs in the shell. After I moved away from home though, fresh crabs were hard to come by, so I had to satisfy my crab cravings with picked crabmeat. Fortunately, Costco’s carries crabmeat at a fairly reasonable cost. It’s still very expensive, but for special occasions I make crab dip, crab pasta, crab soup and crab cakes.
Right before my oldest son returned to college, I made Maryland crab cakes for dinner. He loves crab so whenever he comes home, I make something with crab. I had extra crab cake mixture so I made mini crab cakes so that my husband and I could have some Maryland Crab Cake Sliders for lunch the next day.
My husband enjoyed his mini Maryland Crab Cakes served on toasted gluten-free rolls with baby kale, and I was just as happy having mine served on top of a bed of baby kale. I’ve been loving baby kale for lunch lately. It’s very tender and mild tasting, and so good for you.
Topped with a dollop of organic Roasted Red Pepper Pesto that I found at Costcos, these sliders are moist, tender, and luxurious. They’re a treat for sure.
