    I dig 'em. Always have. In water. If you're spending more than a buck a can, you're spending to much.

    Wash in container with white vinegar, enjoy with cheese & crackers, dry white wine.

    Yes. I prefer them in mustard though.

    Did you know that Sardines are also called Pilchard?

    I like kippers better but sardines in mustard sauce are good. The ones in tomato sauce are good with a few splashes of tapito and a squeeze of lime.

    Theyre good in mustard, or hot sauce, but the smoked ones in oil are the best IMO.

    In grade school i used to sometimes bring some for lunch. That didn't make me popular. I used to try to gross girls out by picking them up by the tail and slowly lowering them into my mouth.

    Take a can of sardines in oil, and brush the oil on some crusty toasted bread. Then put the sardines on the bread, and cover with avocado and lime juice. Then coarsely grate some black pepper. :D

    Saltines in oil are great, as is pickled herring.

    I am currently inebriated and I agree. I have the boozin munchies and coincidentally a can of delicious mustardy sardines in the cupboard, but I think it's best to save them for another day. That is all. Good night.

    I love sardines on olive oil. I'll eat that with toast or breadsticks.

    I LOLd

    I haven't had that in years, but I remember throwing tater tots in the oven and passing out...several times. Wake up hours later in a smoky house with little black nuggets in the oven. Back in the days before smoke alarms.

    My Mom would serve us beans and sardines for lunch when we were kids. Loved it!

    I love sardines too - but I confess to taking the spinal cord out. Just don't like the crunch.

    Current favorite is the $1 per tin Chicken of the sea lightly smoked in oil. Yum!

    I love fresh sardines, barbecued. They're great with crusty French bread and English mustard (it has to be freshly mixed proper stuff, not the generic rubbish) or Worcestershire sauce.
