I have been dreaming and thinking about crab cake sliders for a while now. However, my husband believes that crab cakes should not be sandwiched between two buns. Well, I asked around on facebook and twitter on whether you wanted crab cakes or fajita sliders.
Man oh man ….. crab cake sliders won!!!
That just gave me even more ammunition to make these and have him fall in love with them. We are also not fans of mayonnaise in our house. Mustard or just plain dry wins every time. I knew that I could not slather these delicious sliders with mustard and opted to make a spicy aioli sauce — GASP!
Plus we liked this sauce. Another GASP.
These sliders went perfectly on the King’s Hawaiian ® Dinner Rolls. You can find these rolls in most local grocery stores and they come in savory or sweet. I think my hardest decision on these actual rolls at the grocery store was sweet or savory. As you can tell the savory won out and I was pleased that they complemented the crab cakes so well.
I toasted the rolls just slightly before adding the crab cakes and sauce. Nothing beats toasted bread especially when you love what’s on it!
