Budget Surimi Patties

If you're craving crab or lobster patties, but it's not in your budget-never fear! Here is my rendition of them made from Surimi. Surimi is made from fish, so you're still getting your seafood. Some folks call it artificial crab. I was really pleased with the taste of the new lobster surimi on the market. Here is the link to the contest I entered them into, if you want to vote and give me FIVE STARS (thx):

Budget Surimi Patties

1-12 ounce package crab or lobster surimi
4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1 slice white bread for breadcrumbs, yields 2/3 cup
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons canola oil

Place the slice of bread in a Cuisinart Food Processor and pulse until desired texture of breadcrumbs is achieved. Place the breadcrumbs in a toaster oven or oven for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside.

Place the surimi in a Cuisinart Food Processor. Process until finely textured.

In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the processed surimi, softened cream cheese, breadcrumbs, Old Bay, Dijon, Worcestershire and salt. Divide the mixture into fourths and shape into patties. Pour the canola oil into a 10 inch skillet and warm it over a medium heat. Place the surimi patties in the heated oil and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until browned to desired doneness.
