Baked Chicken Parmesan with Homemade Slow Cooker Marinara Sauce is great over spaghetti or on a sub roll - perfect for quick, cheap and healthy family dinners. From Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Chicken parmesan is an Italian classic that can be served in many different ways. Whether on its own with a vegetable side, over spaghetti noodles or on a hoagie roll, it’s sure to be tasty. Our recipe below makes perfectly crispy, pan fried chicken cutlets which are then topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and placed under the broiler for five minutes. Once the cheese is melted and gooey, it’s topped with homemade slow cooker marinara sauce and freshly chopped basil, which adds a pop of freshness to the plate.

Broiled Maryland-Style Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach Broiled Maryland-Style Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

The mid-Atlantic coast is a region filled with fishing boats, oyster roasts, rolling tides, bald eagles and lighthouses – the whole picturesque nine yards. I was lucky enough to grow up on the Potomac River, which is inside the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This means crab feasts and crabcakes were normal, everyday events for my family. I even went crabbing with crab pots and little fish as bait. It was just part of life for those of us who grew up on the coasts of Virginia, Maryland or Delaware.

Broiled Maryland-Style Crabcakes with Creamy Herb Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

As I thought about creating a crabcake recipe to share with you, I knew I wanted to make Maryland-style crabcakes. Other crabcakes contain a lot of filler ingredients to help the patty stick together, but here in the mid-Atlantic, we prefer the opposite. The crab meat takes center stage (as it should!) and everything else in the cake is just a compliment. A little mayo, mustard and herbs and spices for flavor, an egg and a touch of flour for binding. The cakes are then broiled for a quick and easy meal fit for a king.

The Creamy Herb Sauce on the side is equally delicious, so make sure to save any extra for later. It makes a great salad dressing, veggie dip or sauce for seafood, chicken or beef.
