Slider Recipes

I admit I have been very busy updating all the recipe posts on Seduction In The Kitchen. As I have been doing that, I noticed I am lacking in some categories. One of which is slider recipes.


I do have Cheesy Pepperoni Bratwurst Sliders and a few others, but that is it. Sandwich recipes are one of my favorite recipes to create. Slider recipes are fun because they are bite-size sandwiches.

Slider Sandwiches

If slider sandwiches are bite-size why make them? Sliders are appetizers on a restaurant menu. I like slider sandwiches because when I am watching my weight, that bite-size sandwich is perfect for portion control on an over the top sandwich recipe.

Crab Cakes

I am a huge seafood lover. Recently, I took my dad to Walt Disney World for a few reasons.

  • His birthday
  • To show him it would be ok for me to move to Florida
  • Me to get photos for my new/ old blog: The Recipes Of Disney.

While we were there I took him to Yachtsman Steakhouse for his birthday dinner and I had the best crab cakes.


Those crab cakes were amazing! Even my father, who only eats fried shrimp, took a bot of the crab cakes and enjoyed them. Thinking of Disney’s crab cakes, I decided to make a crab cake slider!


Lemon Dill Aioli


Lemon Dill Sauce

Anyone can take a crab cake recipe put on a bun and say these are slider sandwiches. To make my crab cake sliders stand out I needed a good sauce, a lemon dill sauce.

Crab Cake Sliders

Why use a lemon dill sauce on crab cake sliders? Lemon is wonderful on any seafood. Dill makes a crab cake recipe just pop with flavor. Add the two together and you have a crab cake recipe that will be a mouth orgasm.


I kept these slider sandwiches simple. I really wanted the crab cakes to be the main star and the lemon dill sauce just be a compliment the crab cake recipe. So I choose to only add a little bit of arugula to this slider recipe.


The results are, these crab cake sliders are yummy! I would make this slider recipe for game day!

Crab Cakes

  • 18 butter crackers, crushed (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise, plus more for schmearing
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay, plus additional for garnishing
  • 8 dashes hot sauce
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds lump blue crab meat, shell and cartilage picked out
  • 24 slider buns, split
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste


Crab Cakes

  1. In a large mixing bowl, gently combine the crackers, mayonnaise, parsley, seafood seasoning, hot sauce, egg and some salt and pepper.
  2. Gently fold in the crabmeat until just combined.
  3. Lightly form 24 patties by taking 2 tablespoons of the crab mixture and rolling it into 2-inch balls, about the size of a golf ball. Then lightly smash them into a patty.
  4. Pan-fry the crab cakes in 2 inches of hot oil until they are golden brown. 3-5 minutes.
  5. Take out the oil and pat them with some paper towel to get rid of the excess oil. Set aside.

Lemon Dill Aioli

  1.  Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, and garlic together.
  2. Whisk well for about 5 minutes until the mixture is nice and light.


Place the crab cakes on the bottom of the slider buns. Add a little bit of the lemon dill aioli to the top of the crab cakes. Top with a little arugula lettuce. Then finish with the top slider bun. Serve the crab cake sliders up and ENJOY!


Can you bake the crab cakes instead of frying? YES:

  1. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.
  2. Bake until light golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes
