Besides being tasty, sardines are *super stars* for being healthy. Winner Winner!!

I like brislings which are smaller and still have skin and bones, though you wouldn't really know it. There's no crunch to them or anything. Also like the slightly larger skinless & boneless.

Like them out of the can, in a sandwich or lots of other ways. Tacos, Over pasta with garlic sauteed in olive oil, salads, etc.

A lot of people childishly turn their nose at sardines.
It has been more than 55 years, but the very first food I put in my shopping carriage was a can of King Oscar sardines for my new husband. I don't know why I have remembered that stupid fact after all these years.

Love them....but not the cheap ones. A box of saltines, Louisiana Hot Sauce or hot pepper sauce, a little cheese...I'm happy! Mostly King Oscar, Crown Prince and the like.

I love sardines in a salad. I do them with lettuce, tomatoes, any other salad ingredients you care to put in, red onions, hard boiled eggs. I put the oil in as well, and a good squeeze of lemon juice and I'm in heaven. My OH only likes them on toast.

I love sardines, anyway I can get them. I used to trade my honey-butter sandwiches with my friend for her sardines at lunch. She thought I was crazy.

Sardine Pizza

For dough

1/4 cup white or light red wine
3/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 oz fresh yeast, or 1 pkg instant yeast
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp + 1tbsp olive oil
3.5 cups flour (14.875 oz)

Wake up the yeast if needed. Combine all ingredients into a dough, reserving 1 tbsp of olive oil. Knead 6-8 minutes until smooth and firm, stretching it periodically. Coat with remaining olive oil and let rise for 45 minutes or until doubled. Knock down, let stand 15 minutes and roll out into a round.

For pizza

1.5 cup ricotta cheese
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
8 oz chopped spinach
1 can sardines
2 tsp Tabasco
roasted garlic to taste

Top all of this artfully arranged, on dough round. Cook about 35 minutes in an oven preheated to 375 degrees, or until crust is crisp and firm, but not browning.

I love this pizza, it for some reason horrifies my wife. I just don't think she is a sardine fan. Also can be done with anchovies for additional effect.

sourdough isn't a recipe, it is a process.

Those sardines in the picture look like they have heads on them. I have a very strict rule about not eating anything that is looking at me.

I didn't notice heads but I may have missed them. I don't have "no eyes and heads'' rule. My only rules are no dog nor domestic cat. I would break those rules if I were starving. No human period. I have read that human meat is very tasty, but I'd rather they eat me than I eat them.

My kids used to dissect them and eat the bones first.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
