Sardine Melt

Now, don’t get grossed out by this recipe because I assure you, if you give these little canned babies a try—you’ll be thanking me, not only because of their amazing taste but because of the nutritional punch that they pack, as well. 

I have recently been purchasing sardines for their rich Omega 3’s, which helps our bodies maintain muscle.  Moreover, they are a good source of vitamin D, Calcium, vitamin B12, and protein!  Not to mention low in mercury, making they a smart choice for pregnant women.  If you are not fond of the flavor, try soaking the sardines in vinegar for 30 minutes; I find this helps eliminate the fishy taste. 

I came up with this cute little spin off of a tuna melt and decided to incorporate my sardines.  The flavor is amazing and this will surely become a lunch staple for me.

    I see the ingredients but no directions. I would love to try this out as I often eat Tuna Melts or have sardines on crackers so this would be good.
