How do you eat tinned sardines?

The pretty package in the store tempted me and now I have a tin of sardines in Spanish olive oil. Boneless. I was planning just to eat them with a slice or two of no-knead bread, but I wonder if there's any special way you hounds like to eat them? What goes well with them? Thanks!

  1. A schmear of cream cheese on dense bread or a quality bagel, sardines, thinly sliced onion and freshly ground black pepper. Sometimes a dash of hot sauce for an added kick.

    1. On a cracker with some hot sauce. The KISS method.

        I second this emotion. Crackers and cayenne pepper fact, I think this may be what saltines were invented for. When I was a kid I used to put Plochman's mustard on sardines and saltines. Today I can't imagine it. eeeewwwww!

          Saltines , mustard and hot sauce, is my favorite. My wife likes them only on saltines with a glass of milk to drink along side.

        2. Endive, sardine, splash of fresh lemon juice.

          1. crackers, hot sauce.

                  Open can, pour on a little vinegar or hot sauce, eat each sardine on top of a saltine cracker.
