Kraken Burgers

Servings: 2 (with a few crab cakes left over)

Ingredients

4 slices of thick cut bacon
6 Leaves Baby Spinach
Sriracha

For the ramen buns
2 packages of ramen
2 eggs

For the crab cakes
2 slices dried bread, crusts removed
milk
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Parsley Flakes
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 pound lump crabmeat

Instructions

Prepare two packages of ramen per the instructions on the packet. After it’s cooked let it sit for five minutes, strain out the broth and add it two a bowl. Add a beaten egg and form into patties per the instructions on this video. Chill the uncooked patties in the fridge.

Next cook four pieces of bacon in a large pan. As the bacon is cooking make the crab cake mixture per the instructions on the side of a container of Old Bay.

When the bacon is done remove it from the pan…important: keep the grease! Form four large crabcake patties and fry ’em up. Then (using the same bacon greese) cook the ramen buns. Again refer to this video for more info.

Assemble the kraken burgers in this order: bottom bun, crabcake, bacon, spinach, sriracha, top bun. Before taking your first bite be sure to speak these words…

RELEASE THE KRAKEN!
