Old Bay Crab Burger

This is officially the best burger I’ve ever eaten.

Okay, I admit: I think I’ve had about two hamburgers in my whole life (I’m not a huge ground beef fan). But this meal may have changed my whole outlook on burgers.

I found the recipe in the most recent edition of Runner’s World and switched up the flavoring from curry to Old Bay.

The article explained that crab has a lot of vitamin b12, which apparently helps with red blood cell production, therefore carrying more oxygen to your muscles.

Not going to lie – this dinner seriously tasted like it was from a restaurant!



Makes 2 burger patties.


  • 8 oz lump crab meat
  • 1/2 cup cooked corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat panko bread crumbs
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 1/2 cup low-fat chipotle mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


Mix together ingredients in large bowl.

Form into 2 burger patties with hands.

Grease large skillet and grill about 5 minutes on each side.


We gobbled our burgers down on toasted whole wheat sandwich rolls and topped them with homemade guacamole. Omg.

Tuna got a whole photo flip book of the tasting.
