Mint, Fudge, Oreos.

I finally picked up some new Oreo Fudge Cremes at the grocery store. It is not something that I would normally buy as a nutrition conscious dietitian, however you have to indulge every once in a while. Plus Roy LOVES Oreos, and could eat them every day. Of course I would never let this happen, so we have a deal. If a new Oreo comes out for a holiday or new season I will buy a box. It is a good way to keep the Oreo consumption under control.

The fudge Oreos come in a variety of flavors, including minty goodness. I have to say they are right below my love for Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. Mmmmmmmm.

Next up was dinner.

Baked Lump Crab Cakes:

(Servings 6)

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs ( I used slightly more ~4-5 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay™
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons cholesterol-free egg product (I used one whole egg)
  • 1/2 pound lump crab meat (I used 2 cans lump crab meat)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  • Combine bread crumbs, baking powder, parsley, mustard powder, pepper, and seafood seasoning; set aside. Stir together mayonnaise, butter, Worcestershire, and egg product until smooth. Fold in crab meat, then fold in bread crumb mixture until well blended.
  • Shape mixture into 12 crab cakes, about 3/4 inch thick, and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then turn the crab cakes over, and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until nicely browned.
(Recipe from Allrecipes.com)
Of course I scaled down the recipe to 6 servings for a smaller portions for just two people. They were the perfect size and turned out nice a crispy. Will defiantly make again, as they were east to put together and had a great flavor. Served with organic whole wheat orzo, and fresh asparagus.

Eat really healthy during the day and you can have your cookies too!
