Now, in a medium-sized bowl, add mayonnaise, one and half cups of bread crumbs, lemon juice, parsley, pepper, chives, mustard, red pepper sauce and egg yolks and combine them together. Then, you need to fold in the crab meat and give the mixture a shape of round patties with 2 1/2 inches of diameter. Set the patties aside and take another medium-sized bowl and combine rest of the ingredients. Now, coat the patties well with breadcrumb mixture and put them in the baking pans, sideways. Bake the patties for 12 to 15 minutes and keep on flipping them in every 6 minutes. After 15 minutes, patties will turn golden brown. Now, take them out and serve with a sauce of your choice.
