Coddies From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coddies are a snack food of disputed origin which are largely popular in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, particularly in Baltimore, Maryland. The typical recipe for coddies includes mashed potatoes, eggs, salt, pepper, onions, crushed up saltine crackers, all formed into a patty with breading and deep fried. They also may include a small amount of salted cod fish. Coddies are usually eaten sandwiched between saltines with yellow mustard. The food is somewhat of a local delicacy in Baltimore, and is commonly served in the city's delicatessens and seafood markets, including the historic Lexington Market.
These are just notes at this point. I've watched Chef Todd Mohr's Coddies video a couple times, wrote notes and made my first attempt last night. Please let me know if you are interested in joining me on this cooking project. ~Kim
