Lenten Crab Cakes

1 cup bread crumbs (or about 3 slices of bread toasted on both sides and processed)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 yellow onion diced finely (or processed in food processor)
1 6 oz can of crab meat
6 saltine crackers

Mix first 5 ingredients together, then fold in crab meat. Crush 1/8 cup of saltine crackers (about 6). Make slightly flattened balls from crab mixture and dip in cracker crumbs (about 6-8 patties depending on size). Heat a skillet with a little oil, and place patties in skillet when hot. Cook patties 5 minutes per side. Don't put in before oil is hot, or smush patties too much, or flip too often lest they will fall apart.

I had to look at a bunch of recipes to get the proportions right while leaving out egg and mayo. No picture, but they turned out pretty tasty! I think they'd be nice for weekends or Annunciation potluck!
