It’s no secret that crab cakes are crowd-pleasers, so transform them into two-bite sliders with flavorful seasonings for a new twist on a summertime appetizer. In this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, Jeff Mauro bakes his crab cakes instead of sauteing, to save on time. Serve them on soft potato buns with a mayo-citrus sauce for tanginess and greens for a colorful garnish.
