  1. Split and mash the potatoes in a mixing bowl; set aside. The potato skins may be left on if desired.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat; cook and stir the bell pepper, onion, and celery in the melted butter until they begin to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir the milk into the mixture; pour the mixture over the mashed potatoes and stir to combine. The consistency should not be too runny. Allow the mixture to cool completely.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Add the crabmeat, Cheddar cheese, and dill to the potato mixture; season with salt. Lightly mix. Pour the beaten eggs into the mixture and stir to combine. If the mixture is too thin, bread crumbs or flour can be added to make more firm. Form the mixture into 24 small patties.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the patties in small batches in the skillet until completely browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Do not flip until bottom is fully browned and crisp; this ensures the patties will not break. Transfer to a baking dish in the oven to keep hot until all are cooked. Serve hot.

The recipe sounded good, after reading review I went to the kitchen and made it, its not even dinnertime yet! Five stars WITH my adaptions. The milk concerned me as far as too watery, so held ...

the crab patties were not good at all! dont put the cheese in or the dill and you also need some bread crumbs but i have to say the imitation crab is ok and maybe put some white fish also.

This was judged "tasty" when served with cocktail sauce by my husband. I thought they had a pronounced potato-y flavor. Will probably make again, tho with less potatoes.
