any dish that is finely chopped and mixed with a spicy condiment. for instance, these deviled eggs they're called "deviled" since the yolks are chopped and mixed with mustard. another big favorite are the deviled crab cakes that we're making today, and they go together like this. we started by saut?ing some green peppers, onions and celery until they're tender. while that cools, we mix together about a pound of imitation crab meat that's been flaked, some bread crumbs, a beaten egg, a bit of mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise and our veggies. now, we form this into about baking sheet. just make sure you don't pack them too tightly. ok, into the oven they go until they're golden ... that's it. let me tell you, these are great on their own, but to take them over the top, you might want to serve them on a bed of greens with some tartar or remoulade sauce - or both. all i know is no matter how you serve them, everyone will love them. so go online and get the recipe for our "deviled crab cakes," so you can make
