  • 1 pound crabmeat I bought 3 cans of crab meat that were 6 oz each
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 cup RITZ crackers crushed (this is approximately 1 and 1/4 tubes of crackers)
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons dried chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • Butter for melting over the top


  1. First you want to put your crab meat into a mixing bowl. Be sure to pick through and make sure there are no stray shells fragments in the meat. Biting into a shell in your Crab Bites will really ruin your game day mood, LOL!
  2. Now you want to crush your RITZ crackers. I like to put my RITZ crackers into a large baggie and use my rolling-pin to crush them. This is a fast and easy way to get it done. crab bite appetizers
  3. Add your crushed RITZ crackers, Old Bay Seasoning and parsley to the bowl.
  4. In a small separate bowl whisk together your egg, mustard, lemon juice and Worcestershire Sauce.
  5. Pour the liquid mixture over your crabmeat ingredients in the mixing bowl.
  6. Gently mix all these ingredients together.
  7. Using your hands, form small balls with the crab meat mixture. Make the balls around the size of a golf ball.
  8. Place these Crab Bites onto a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes in an oven at 350 degrees F.
  9. Remove the Crab Bites from the oven and drizzle with melted butter. Put back into the oven for 5 minutes. Turn crab bites over and cook another 5 minutes so the tops start to brown!
