Good Lord...Sardines...They bring back memories. When I was about 6 or 7, my parents would stop at the grocery and buy 2 cans of sardines for dinner on the way home from church on Sunday. They would cut up fresh yellow onions, roma tomatoes, and we would have them on saltines. Unusual, but brings back memories. I remember that I used to love them!

Straight out of the can with some toast on the side.

You can make a delicious sardine sandwich with mashed sardines and thousand island dressing. Use as much or as little of the dressing as you want, for a consistency you prefer on rolls, French bread, toast, etc.

My other favorite is sardines mixed and flaked with hot buttered rice. Serve broccoli or carrots (or both) with sesame oil on the side. Add any Asian topping to the rice mixture, if desired. Years ago, when we were a family of four, would often do this with a large can of mackerel, instead of a small can of sardines!

Hilary, As a child, I used to watch my dad make sardine sandwiches with sliced onions, and remember the awful smell. Since I learned how healthy they are for you, I do eat them once in a while. l eat them with shrimp sauce to hide the taste. Last week I tried mixing miracle whip with the sardines, (I take out the bones) and spread it on whole wheat bread. It was ok; I just need to experiment a little more. The next time I will add dyjon mustard and diced onions to the miracle whip, which I do when I make tuna or salmon salads. I look forward to reading more suggestions from your readers.
