Just right out of the can!!! I have never tried them in a recipe - my grandpa turned me on to eating sardines when was very young, and I remember sitting in their kitchen with some crackers, cheese, and and an open can. I think that's the best way for someone to get to know these yummy little flavor powerhouses!

I like them plain, right out of the can. I used to eat a lot of these when I was young and have kind of let my taste for them fall by the wayside. They are very good. I will have to get a can and start eating them again. I used to eat the skin on with bones but I think I would like the skinless and boneless better.

Sardines are some of my favorite fish, I like mine mashed with some hot sauce and then put on a slice of whole wheat toast, toast under a grill till hot, yummy... happy eating, Cara.

Lov'em! I marinate fresh diced red onions in white or cidar vinager for about 20mins. I add the onions to the sardines with 1 clove of freshly grated garlic and salt & pepper to taste... that's it! I may add some other herbs such as oregano, dill, cayenne pepper, etc...
I also may add about a teaspoon of the left behind vinegar to the mix, and eat with toast or crackers! Delicious!

I love them straight, bones and skin, i skin them myself the eat the skin by itself. then when im done with that i take the fish, put it on some bread, and eat it. The bones add a great crunchy feeling, you know like eating stale saltine crackers.

In a FlatOut wrap, first put mustard on all of it, then add baby spinach and crunch up a whole can of sardines and on top add a sliced tomato and then some broccoli slaw on top and roll up and serve a knife and fork with a glass of dark cold grape juice. Yuuum. Rena Barlow

My friends are always making fun of me for buying "fish heads in mayonnaise"; the fools. Any way try creamed hearing with pumpernickel bread. It was very good while it was fresh. Couldn't finish the jar because of the idiots and there dislike for the kind of foods I like. Which unfortunately is the food most people don't like. Not sure if I do that on purpose or not.

I like sardines but they give me fish burps now that I am older. I suppose I have fish breath too. I wish someone would make a litmus test for bad breath they would be rich overnight. That is one thing you cannot tell you have unless someone turns up their nose at you and goes phewwww. And I have dentures which soak up the fish odor. any suggestions.
