  • 4 New England-style hotdog buns
  • 1 pound fresh lump crabmeat, picked over for shells
  • 2 tablespoons good mayonnaise, such as Hellmann's or Best
  • spritz of fresh lemon juice, optional
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 4 lettuce leaves, preferably Bibb or green leaf
  • minced chives, to garnish (optional)
  • kettle-cooked potato chips, to serve


  • Combine the crabmeat and mayonnaise and stir just until fully combined. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, if desired.
  • Heat a frying pan or griddle to medium. Butter the sides of each hotdog bun and place them side-down and grill until golden brown. Grill the other side.
  • Place a leaf of lettuce inside each bun. Spoon a generous heap of crabmeat into each bun, and garnish with chives, if desired. Serve immediately with kettle-cooked potato chips.
