Crab and Cheddar Burger

A flavourful crab cake is hard to resist! Especially when it's made with ingredients that bring out the flavour. Our succulent burger recipe combines the fresh taste of crab with green apple, Cheddar Cheese, and lemon. It'll definitely top your list of favourites!



  • 450 g (1 lb) crab meat, drained
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) onion, minced
  • 4 green onions, minced
  • 250 mL (1 cup) panko-type breadcrumbs
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 10 mL (2 tsp) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 60 mL (4 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted



  • 1 egg
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp)milk
  • 80 mL (1/3 cup) flour
  • 375 mL (1 1/2 cups) fresh bread crumbs




  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the burgers. Shape into 4 patties.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg with the milk. To bread the patties, dredge them in the flour, dip them in the beaten egg and coat them with bread crumbs. Press well with your hands to make sure the crumbs stick. Refrigerate.
  3. In a skillet, heat the butter and brown the burgers over medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side. Two minutes before the burgers are done, top each with a slice of cheese.
  4. Warm or toast the buns and spread them with mayonnaise. Place a burger on each bun and top with the apple-celery mixture.
