Bobby Chez (10) 3 oz. Famous Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes
I eat crab cakes any chance I get at a restaurant; and, these are definitely restaurant quality. I love the light texture and panko crust. The fact that they are not spicy allows my little one to enjoy them as well. We ate the first delivery so quickly, I was tempted to another set! Also, I was pleased with the size of them, esp. since I am working on portion control & counting calories. Bobby Chez also sells a 4 oz set; so, maybe folks were confused and though that's what they were getting.
Different but Tasty
My husband is a crab cake snob and LOVED these! Yes, they are different than a Maryland-style, spiced crabcake, but I enjoyed the lighter flavoring and panko-crisp crust. I followed the baking instructions and despite sticking to my baking pans a bit, they came out nicely. They might have been a wee-bit fishy smelling when baking, but ours were not fishy-tasting, but rather sweet and tasty. Our crab cakes did contain large pieces of meat. I did however find that my husband and I ate two rather than one a piece b/c the size was a bit smaller than I expected. I only wish they were slightly less costly...eating two at a time makes for a splurgy $$ at home meal. Overall I would recommend these - in fact I am ordering more for when I have family in town.
Not As Pictured On Tv
I was on auto delivery so I waited for two shipments to rate them. I never got one crab cake with any jumbo crab pieces. My two shipments were mostly filler and very small bits of crab. This is definitely not worth the price of this product.
I purchased this for a special dinner we were having to celebrate my brother returning from overseas (he is in the Air Force), and he had not been home for two years. He loves all sea food, especially crab, so we really focused on that. I was excited when I saw these on QVC and how awesome they looke.....key word "looked", I prepared the entire box and they looked delicious, of the 10 people that thought they were the lucky ones to grab one, not one ate the entire cake, they were NOT loaded with crab meat, barely had enough meat in them to qualify as crab cake. I was not only disappointed but ashamed that I had brought them. Would be sending them back if I had not prepared the 10 for the dinner, wish I had thought and put them on dry ice, just so you could see that I am not kidding as to how sad they were. This is my first ever bad review for the Q, Sorry PS, didn't want to give any star but had to to get this to post
These don't look like they did on the television demonstration....very small.....only sauce inside ....didnt find any lumps of crab....all it tastes like are panko crumbs...takes forever to bake...even from thawed. Totally awful product!!
where's the flavor
I've had crab cakes from QVC in the past that I enjoyed. This brand is not up to par.
I got the Bobby Chez crabcakes and quite frankly was disappointed at the taste. It was only okay and didn't have those huge lumps of crab that we've come accustomed to with the Chesapeake Bay Crabcakes. The Graham and Rollins are a bit better but PLEASE QVC, bring back the Chesapeake Bay crabcakes. They were fabulous and well worth the money unlike these Bobby Chez crabcakes.
I won't order them again. They just aren't worth it.
Received quickly so I was excited to try one and was a bit disappointed. On air they show this creamy rue sort of oozing when cut open but mine was rather dry. Crispy yes and flavor was okay but quite frankly not worth the cost. I will let the hubby try one and see what he thinks but if he agrees they will be going back. I will say though better than most kinds made with mayo. As a crab lover i had to try these but they were a little fishy tasting instead of tasting like sweet crab.
good but not great
Way to expensive for what you get......They are OK but nothing great.... Disappointed... WHERE ARE RON & MARGIE??? NOW THOSE WERE GREAT CRAB CAKES????
For the price these are not a good buy. They do have a good amount of lump crab meat, but not very flavorful, they do have a rather 'fishy' taste. I will continue to make my own which I think have much more flavor than these, i was hoping to avoid the amount of time it takes to make them.
