Mini Crab Cakes
Adapted from Bon AppetitMakes 24

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided
1 large egg
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
4 teaspoons plus 4 Tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
Large pinch cayenne pepper
6 ounces fresh lump crabmeat, picked over, patted dry, coarsely shredded
1-1/2 cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter , melted
Fresh chives cut into pieces
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese in a medium bowl until smooth.  Add 1/4 cup Parmesan and egg; beat to blend.  Beat in
sour cream, citrus zest, 4 teaspoons chopped chives, coarse salt and cayenne pepper.  Fold in crabmeat.  (This can be made one day ahead.  Cover and chill.)

Spray mini muffin pan with nonstick spray.  Toss 1-1/2 cups panko, 3/4 cup Parmesan and 4 Tablespoons chopped chives in a bowl.  Drizzle
melted butter over, tossing with a fork until evenly moistened.  Press 1 rounded Tablespoon panko mixture into bottom of each muffin cup (makes a well with your thumb), forming crust.  Spoon 1 generous Tablespoon crab mixture into each cup.  Sprinkle more panko mixture over each.

Bake crab cakes in a 350 degree oven until golden on top and set, about 20 minutes.  Cool in pan 5 minutes.  Gently lift each crab cake out of the pan with a fork onto a serving platter. (Can be made 2 hours ahead.  Arrange on baking sheet, let stand at room temperature.  Rewarm in a 350 degree oven for 5-6 minutes.)

Arrange crab cakes on a serving platter; sprinkle with chives.
