    Do you mean the flat oval can... sardines in tomato sauce... do you
    have a cat? hehe I split each and scrape out the innards 'cause those
    bones are kind of tough and off putting. Then lay them on a bed of
    lettuce and top with paper thin sliced onion and tomato... dress with
    a little lemon... same salad is good on butter slabs of good black
    bread. Or mash with mayo same as tuna salad, makes a good sammiche.
    Years ago they were labeled "Herring in Tomato Sauce" but they are no
    longer actual herring... today they can be any small fish, which is
    what sardines are, there is no such fish as a sardine.

    I don't recommend giving fish or other seafood to cats.
    Many cats can develop a food sensitivity from this.
    Once they develop a food sensitivity, it can be hard
    to keep them alive. The two cats I had the longest
    period of time developed food sensitivities in their
    old age. They wasted away and died because of this.
    I kept one alive for a year or two by making my own
    cat food from lamb, brown rice, and some sort of
    digestive enzyme additive recommended by the vet.
    That was a lot of work. Every three days, I'd make
    another batch. That plus the steroid hormones
    worked for a while, but it was a losing battle.

    I'd recommend only feeding lamb or poultry based
    cat food, and definitely no fish. Once my boss
    had a cat that was dying, and it would throw up
    everything. I asked what he fed it, and he said
    tuna. I said that's the worst thing to feed to a
    sick cat. The best would be lamb, and second best
    would be unseasoned turkey breast. There was a
    cafeteria across the street, and he bought some
    plain turkey breast there. The next day he told
    me I had performed a miracle. The cat ate it all
    and kept it down.

    That was the second can I opened. The first one I had already
    eaten.

    Maybe someone should alert all the pet food companies.

    Anyone can develop a seafood allergy but it's pretty rare except under
    certain conditions... a small percentage of folks develop a seafood
    allergy from a steady regimen of calcium suppliments made from ground
    up mollusk shells. I think there are too many products with calcium
    added but don't say where the calcium is derived.. I wonder where the
    calcium comes from that they add to OJ. Anyone who consumes some
    dairy daily needs no calcium suppliments. I don't drink milk but I
    eat all kinds of cheeses, cottage cheese is a favorite, and I eat a
    container of yogurt just about every day. I'd think only those who
    are lactose intolerant would benefit from calcium suppliments, but
    they should be aware of the source. A lot of generic OTC and Rx
    tablets use mollusk calcium as a base, not good. Anyone who tells you
    that generic drugs are excatly the same as branded doesn't know what
    they're talking about or is lying... there are many differences.

    Mine are in the 16 ounce oval cans, look much nicer, i love the small
    cans packed in mustard on crackers but wanted something more to do with
    the big ones other than atop crackers.

    I sure hope they look better.

    The problem with the bigger sardines and often they have scales.
    Especially the Mexican brands in tomato sauce.

    In last weeks The Minimalist column in the NY Times, Mark Bittman offered a
    sardines and pasta dish for a quick meal from staples. While your sardines
    are in tomato sauce and his recipe called for sardines in olive oil, perhaps
    it might still work well.

    What's weird is that it didn't stink at all. It smelled less than
    the first "good" can.

    Serve them on crackers with a little mayo!
    They also might be good in some mac and cheese. ;-)

    You could probably use them in Amazing Mackerel Pudding (might take
    a couple of cans though to substitute for 1 can of mackerel)

    The sardines packed in oil (drained) make better tuna salad than
    canned tuna does. Not sure how the tomato sauced ones (or mustard
    sauce) would work.

    My mother used to thinly slice some onions, place them in a Pyrex
    dish, then pour the "herring"and sauce over them, cover, and
    refrigerate all day or longer.

    Boy, your cats get the royal treatment. I don't think mine would like
    the sliced onion though.

    Do you like tuna salad made from tuna and mayo? If so maybe you would
    like sardine salad made from sardines and mayo. It's more intense in a
    way that some will like and some won't. I like sardines and sour cream
    - I think it cuts the oily nature of the sardines better.

    Do you like tomato sauce with meat? If so then maybe the meat in
    question can be fish meat rather than grass eater meat.

    Based on those two ideas I thought about pizza with anchovies. I like
    it. I figure sardines are milder than anchovies but they are also
    bigger than anchovies. Sounds like it shouldbalance out. So mix in
    sauteed garlic, oregano, basil and serve on toast or pizza dough or in
    my case some sort of wheat free substiture.
