I've got some. What do I do with them?

    Have a classic English breakfast: eggs over easy, fried tomato, pork & beans on toast,and kippers.
    Don't forget the tea.
    OR -
    Have an old fashioned NYC type sandwich:
    Thick cut bakery rye with caraway seeds, unsalted butter, thin sliced onion, thin sliced tomato and,
    of course, kippers!
    Beer...

    1. You can fry up the kippers with some onions and serve with eggs for breakfast. Delicious. BUT, it really stinks up the house.

        I'm another one who LOVES smoked kipper snacks for breakfast!

        I just drain the can & place the kippers (whole filets or broken into large pieces) in a skillet with some melted butter along with a couple of eggs & sometimes one or two thick slices of plain ripe or breaded green tomatoes. Not quite an "English" breakfast, but delicious nonetheless!

      2. I like kipper snacks on a Triscuit with mustard, they are sort of like sardines and not really meant to be cooked, they already are.

        1. I like them with saltines...need to try them with triscuits, though. They are very good for you, too; low-fat source of protein and low-sodium, also good source of fatty omega 3.

            Good point on the nutrition! They are also loaded with calcium from the tiny bones. But I don't know about the Triscuits...I am a known salt abuser but that combo. is too salty even for me.
            Don't listen to me! You go on with your bad salt eating self!
            LOL.

              There are low sodium Triscuits and there are also low fat. I find the low fat to be crispier than the other varieties.

                Yes, I do love the low-fat Triscuits, too...love them with natural peanut butter. Just a few of makes me feel full.

                  There are now "Hint of Salt" Triscuits...they've been out for a while but I see how old this thread is...love kippers though...have found Crown Prince natural kippers at Whole Foods, very low sodium only 70 mgs per can. Amazon had them at a much better price too but ran out...drat!

          2. Open carefully to make sure the juice doesn't squirt on you or you will be hounded by cats and dogs all day. If you have fresh bread (a fresh rye is tasty) , pour off the oil/juice and use for dipping. Annoint the filets with a squeeze of lemon or just fork them up plain. Then carefully seal up the container- quite smelly and a magnet for trash digging night dwellers like racoons.
