Simple Crab Cake Bites


  • 1 container real lump crab meat (8 oz)
  • 1 package Jiffy Cornbread mix
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Saute the onion and pepper in a Tablespoon of oil until softened. Add the garlic and saute another 30 seconds. Let cool.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add the onions and peppers. Carefully mix.
  3. Shape into small balls and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. In a pot, wok or saute pan, add oil over medium high heat. You want there to be enough oil to cover the crab balls by 3/4.
  5. Drop in 4-5 crab balls at a time and let them cook until they turn a golden brown, between 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally.
  6. Place on paper towels and continue until all poppers are done.
