3 cups plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup mayonnnaise
1 tbs. dijon mustard
1 large egg (beaten)

1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. hot sauce (optional)
Directions:
1. In a bowl, mix egg, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper. (Adding hot sauce is optional.) Add crab meat to the mixture and stir. Refrigerate for an hour or two to chill.
2. After an hour or two, remove crabmeat from refrigerator. Put bread crumbs on a separate dish. Depending how large you want your crab cake, take 2 tbs. of crabmeat an roll into a ball. Then roll the ball in the bread crumbs until fully covered. Using your hand, press down to flatten. (about 1/2 inch thick) Repeat the process with the rest of the crabmeat.
3. You have two cooking options. You can fry them in a pan with olive oil, 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. You can also bake them in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Brush a little olive oil on the baking pan before putting crab cakes in the oven.
4. In a deep pan, fill with water. Bring to a boil. Crack eggs into water. With a tablespoon, keep lifting white of the egg over the yolk. Let stay for about 3 minutes, until white of the egg becomes firm.
5. Place poached eggs over the crab cakes.
