Looks beautiful. I've tried a few of Delia Smith's recipes and they always come out quite nice.

Lots of food. Lots of wine. It was all good.

Ingredients:
1 lb. crab meat (backfin or lump)
2 slices bread (crust removed)
milk
1 egg beaten
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp. salt

Instructions:
In bowl, break bread into small pieces and moisten with milk. Add all remaining ingredients except crab and mix. Pick over crab meat to remove shell particles. Add crab meat to mixture, mixing gently but thoroughly. Shape into six patties and chill 30 minutes. Pan fry in a little butter or oil until brown on each side or broil in oven until browned.
Thanks for the recipe:) I'll have to try another one because tonight I even tried to shallow fry them with more oil so they were almost half covered and they turned to mush:(

MM that just looks and sounds so tasty!!!!! So much flavour in that meal and there would certainly be a clean plate after that:)

Thanks:) I'll get around to posting the recipe I used for the tomato and chilli jam.

Oh GQ that so reminds me of my childhood:) When I was a kid at christmas I could only open my presents after I had taken my mum and dad in a sausage roll and a cup of tea:) We made the sausage rolls and mince pies on Christmas Eve so Christmas morning they were still nice and fresh and I would put a sausage roll on a plate and make the quickest cup of tea in the world and rush in and wake them up:) Oh the memories!!

That sounds reasonable. What is it that works better that way? I have never made any of these dishes.

I don't know that one is better than the other.

For a (chicken) Milanese, the procedure is to combine equal amounts of parm and breadcrumbs for coating the cutlet. The parm flavor is throughout the coating. There is no topping for Milanese like the cheeses on top of the chicken parm. All the cheese flavor is in the cutlet.

When I make a parm dish (chicken, etc.) I top the cutlet with mozzarella and grated parm. Sir_Loin mixed the parm into the breading for the cutlet instead. You get a the taste of the parm with every bite.

I'm thinking I'll do both next time!

I roasted chicken breasts, made a gravy, added peas and had that over egg noodles with bread-n-butter.

I don't know if you or anyone else has any tips for making them more firm? Maybe a whole new recipe and not using the potato?

Anyway, here was the end result, looks ok, tastes ok but just not sure about the consistency.
Yum! That is all I ever seem to say at all of these food photos. lol I love crab cakes, but I would have to make them for myself. Someone else doesn't like seafood, except haddock.
