Help me dress up these quinoa cakes

I'm thinking of taking veggie quinoa cakes to an office potluck. At home I enjoy them plain or with a poached egg on top for brunch, but I'm looking for another way to serve them at the office.

The cakes are made with (usually leftover) veggie quinoa - quinoa w/ leeks, carrots, zucchini, bell pepper, etc. Then I add egg, parm, fresh herbs and cayenne, form little cakes and fry. Sometimes I add some crumbled italian sausage, but I'm still debating whether to add that for the office party or not.

Any ideas on how I could serve these cakes at the office potluck? Maybe a sauce or salsa to go with them?

    are these things like slabs of polenta? how crumbly are they? can you dip them into a tzatziki type sauce? how about a Thai peanut sauce?

      They're not really crumbly. They're firm with a slight crust, kind of like a veggie burger. Thanks for the great ideas!
