Avocados Make Crabcakes Kid-Friendly
Crabcakes are usually considered an appetizer in most high-end restaurants. But mix in some mashed avocado and they suddenly become a delicious entree that kids and adults will love.
A few weeks ago I attended a cooking class at a local restaurant called The Depot that was all about grilled cheese. We made several different kinds of ooey, gooey grilled cheese sandwiches that went from your basic grilled cheese to high-end crab-based grilled cheese. It was during this final recipe for a crab-and-avocado grilled cheese sandwich that the chef told us we didn't have to make a sandwich. If we wanted to, we could change the recipe and make a special crabcake.
That sounded like a wonderful idea. I mean who doesn't like crabcakes? Then I thought about it and realized most kids aren't big fans of the little patties. But if you add some spices and some mashed avocado, you get an unbelievably rich, delicious crabcake that kids will gobble up just as quickly as most adults.
