Gluten Free Lobster Cakes (Low Carb)

I thought I was having chicken for supper tonight.  Chicken turned into pre-cooked lobster.  But what do you do with a cold pre-cooked lobster?  I wasn’t feeling the whole dipping it into garlic butter.  I had the thought to try a lobster cake.  I was a little intimidated.  Okay, maybe more like very intimidated since…

What goes on opposite sides of a hamburger???  If you guessed a bun you are correct!  Some people eat their hamburgers bunless (like me), or they try an oopsie roll, they even go as far as wrapping lettuce around the burger.  I’ll pass on the lettuce but I have tried an oopsie roll and I…
