The origins of the White Potato Pie are murky, with some recipes noting that it was a poor man’s dessert, created by those who could not afford high-class ingredients.

A Maryland favorite with unknown origins, the Baltimore coddie, essentially a codfish cake, was ubiquitous in the city in the 50s and 60s. Made with a mixture of salt cod, potatoes, milk, and crackers, and served with mustard between two saltines, this tasty snack sold for 5 cents a pop at delis and malt shops throughout the city.
