Crab cake sliders with easy lemon aioli

Makes 10 sliders

3/4 cup mayonnaise, divided

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon crushed dried thyme

1 pound lump crab meat

1 1/2 cups crushed kettle-cooked potato chips

1/2 cup minced celery

2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning

Arrange an oven rack inside the oven about 12 inches from the broiler. Heat the broiler. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup of the mayonnaise, the lemon zest and juice, garlic, mustard and thyme. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the crab meat, potato chips, celery, Old Bay, the remaining 1/4 cup of the mayonnaise, and the eggs. Mix well, then form into 10 patties, each about 2 1/2 inches across and 1/2 inch thick. Arrange the patties on the prepared baking sheet. Broil the patties for 3 to 4 minutes, rotating the pan as needed for even browning. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, flip each patty and broil for another 3 to 4 minutes. Keep a close eye on them to avoid burning. Serve the crab cakes with the aioli.
