Ingredients

  • 2 cans (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original French Bread
  • 1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped mango
  • 1 tablespoon chopped seeded jalapeño chile
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onion (1 medium)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Progresso™ panko bread crumbs
  • 12 oz fresh cooked lump crabmeat (1 1/3 cups) or 2 cans (6.5 oz each) special white lump crabmeat, drained
  • 1/4 cup unsalted or salted butter, melted

Aioli

  • 1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Cut each loaf of dough crosswise into 6 pieces. Roll dough into balls; place on cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on cooling rack.
  • 3
    Increase oven temperature to 400°F. In food processor bowl, combine red pepper, mango and jalapeño. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses or until mixture is finely chopped.
  • 4
    In large bowl, combine pepper mixture, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, egg, Worcestershire sauce, green onion, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs until well blended. Gently fold in crabmeat until well blended. (Mixture will be moist.)

    In small bowl, stir together remaining 1 cup bread crumbs and melted butter until blended. Using 1/4 cup crab mixture per patty, shape into 12 (2-inch) patties; sprinkle both sides of each patty with bread crumbs. Reshape each patty, if necessary. Place on cookie sheet.
  • 6
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes, turning once halfway through baking, or until cakes are golden brown on both sides.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, in food processor bowl, combine aioli ingredients. Cover; process until smooth.

    Cut buns in half horizontally. Spread aioli on cut sides of each bun. Place bottoms of buns on serving platter; top each with crab cake and top of bun.
