These are loaded with crab, and even in a state that is famous for this dish, people come to Gardiner to track them down.
1. Mix the crabmeat, corn, bell pepper, celery, onion, mayonnaise, and mustard in a medium bowl. Season with the salt and pepper. Gently fold in the beaten egg and 1½ cups of the cracker crumbs, taking care not to overwork the mixture.
2. Place the remaining 1 cup crumbs on a plate or in a shallow dish.
3. Form the crab mixture into 3-ounce patties, about 3 inches in diameter. Coat the cakes with the cracker crumbs, on both sides, by placing each cake in the dish of crumbs and pressing gently.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter, and cook the crab cakes until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Serve.

I know it's tough, but try not to eat all the cereal beforehand.
1. Mix the cream, eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk until combined.
2. Put the cereal in a storage bag and use a rolling pin to crush cereal until it resembles cracker meal. Transfer the cereal to a shallow dish.
3. Dip a couple slices of the bread into the cream mixture until soft but not completely soaked. Let excess liquid drip from the bread, then press into the cereal crumbs to coat evenly. Place on a sheet pan and repeat with the remaining slices.
4. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat, add butter as needed, and cook the bread until caramelized on both sides, about 6 to 8 minutes total.
5. For the whipped cream topping: Beat the cream, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl with a hand mixer to soft peaks. Dollop on top of the French toast and serve with the berries.
