Maryland Crab Cakes Trim crusts from bread and lay slices on a shallow platter. Pour oil over them and let stand until bread is thoroughly saturated. Use forks to break into small pieces. Combine egg yolks with mustard, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Beat lightly. Stir in bread and crab meat, gently fold in stiffly beaten egg whites, and shape mixture into patties. Sprinkle with paprika and saute in heated butter until golden on both sides.
