Visiting parts of , as well as living near the Eastern shore of the United States, has given me great appreciation for seafood, especially crab meat. In this part of the country, we catch it, crack it, pick it, and eat it! Thus, came the inspiration for a crab meat burger. With these sliders one can neatly and easily consume this delicacy in several mouth-watering bites.
Chilling the patties before grilling helps them to maintain their shape and not fall apart on the grill.
The coleslaw dressing adds tang and crunch. These sliders are great as appetizers, cut in halves or quarters, or paired with a salad for lunch or dinner.
Bet you can't eat just one!
