Steakhouse 55 is a restaurant located inside the Disneyland Hotel. It is named for the year that Disneyland Park opened. Steakhouse 55 is known for serving up classic steakhouse cuisine with attentive service as well as the lavish use of fresh ingredients and an impressive wine cellar. These crab cakes remind me of the elegant dinner we had on our vacation to Disneyland. Make sure you save room for dessert because their 24 layer cake is simply amazing!
I make this crab cake recipe as a light dinner served with a caesar salad. You could make them as 14-16 mini sized portions or 4 regular portions. I prefer the regular sized portions for an easy weekday dinner. Enjoy!
