These are very inexpensive and generally sold as street food to be eaten on the street as an egg and potato sandwich stuffed into flatbread with a thin sauce tomatish or purchased and brought home. I have spoken to a couple of my favorite vendors and have come up with this authentic recipe. I adore the egg and potato sandwiches and also love these cakes simply dipped into sauce tomatish and eaten as is. This is poor man's food and sells for 5-10DH ($.70) a sandwich depending on how many eggs and potatoes you want in your sandwich. One of my favorites comes from a man with a table, frying pan, 5 litre jug of oil, a single gas burner, flats of eggs, stacks of bread and rows of potato cakes with bottles of sauce tomatish which his wife makes for him at home each morning to sell. Many of these vendors appear only late at night when all other places to eat have closed. Don't be tempted to use eggs to bind these or they will cease to be Moroccan potato cakes. Easy and yummy comfort food! These are also often eaten at room temperature and/or a bit cold though not from the fridge cold. c.2005
