I've been eating them every day for breakfast with oyster crackers for a week or so now, and I must say they are extremely tastey

Very good for the heart, and not as high in sodium as I had thought.

I love sardines too. I have found that eating them at work is not a good idea. But, I have to eat them in private when I get home.

@maxdancona,
yeah - I like to leave at least 24 hours between eating sardines and being in any kind of public setting. I've noticed it can make people's skin kinda smell - much in the way garlic can.

Not to mention the breath.

Are there different "grades" of sardines? Does the oil make a difference?

There are many different packings for herrring, but have never heard of sardines packed in anything other than oil.

@PUNKEY,
I can get sardines packed in spring water. (Brunswick brand) I add a drop or two of hot pepper sauce. I eat them for lunch on my days off (can't imagine opening a can in the lunchroom at work -- although I'd probably get a table to myself...hmmm...)

After eating I brush brush brush and use a good mouthwash.

I'd never eat them at work!

I've been trying different brands and flavors.

@chai2,
Someone at my house is getting a can of smoked Scottish sardines (packed in olive oil) in their Christmas stocking this year. Santa and I have an understanding.

@Tai Chi,
So far my favorite has been King Oscar's Mediterranean Sardines. It's got black olives in there.

Not too crazy about kippers though. Maybe it was the brand. I've got another brand waiting it's turn.

@chai2,
I like them on my salad - they're good and healthy. I also like anchovies, smoked herring etc. I buy them at Trader Joe's and find their brand the best so far.

I chop up some onions, add some mayonnaise, and a can of tuna (drained), and after mashing it with the sardines, I call it sartune. On toasted bread it is quite a different sandwich, I believe. Some slices of tofu, or left over chicken can add even more protein.

Protein make muscles.

I like pickled herring, not smoked.

Must be a cultural thing (my slavic roots), because this time of year, I just have to buy some pickled herring.

Wally looks at me like I'm crazy when I say "It's the Holidays! Have some Herring!"

mmmm....a nice slice of herring on a good rye....slurp.

You're all quite disgusting! Ugh. Blech! Smile

I had to buy them for the guys in camp this year and you can get them with lemon, in tomato sauce, hot pepper sauce, mustard, and a few other flavours. Digusting!

That'd make a great Hallmark card.

You got that right.

Seriously, what says Festivus more than this...

@George,
Yeah, and the "Airing of Grievances" could get pretty interesting after eating half a jar.
