Antony Worrall Thompson / 10 May 2016

Sardines on toast never tasted so good. Tinned sardines also contain omega-3 fats and are a really versatile store-cupboard food. A great snack.

Cooking time

10 minutes




  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon soft thyme leaves
  • 3 tablespoons wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 150ml low-fat yogurt
  • 1 small tin sardines, drained and mashed
  • 2 eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 slices wholegrain bread


Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and thyme and cook until the onion is soft but not brown. Add the remaining ingredients except the bread and warm through, stirring to combine. Season with black pepper to taste.

Preheat the grill. Toast the bread, then share the mixture equally between the slices. Pop under a hot grill until the mixture bubbles. Serve hot.
