Not quite to modern taste…

The 1950’s Modern Practical Cookery book might have once been modern, but who nowadays would make sardine biscuit… using a tin of sardines n olive oil. Now I happen to love sardines, but this really takes the biscuit! It actually sounds quite nasty but here it is in case you are intrigued by the idea:

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tin of sardines in olive oil
  • oatmeal or breakfast biscuits
  • small bunch of watercress
  • 2 har boiled egg yolks
  • cayenne pepper
  1. flake the sardines once you have removed the bones, mix with the egg yolks and cream cheese
  2. pound all together and add caynne
  3. pile the mixture onto the oatmeal or biscuits, or pipe the mixture onto th biscuits
  4. garnish with watercress

I think I might miss this one off the menu!
