Sardine Rillettes 4_12_12
I date myself when I say the one-liner, ‘everything tastes better when it sits on a ritz’. I can't help it, that catchy advertiser for Ritz crackers is from, what, the 80’s-90’s? So I used a whole grain cracker to hold the sardines though a lettuce wrap or pita would be good also, but I didn’t have those on hand. So I mounded the cracker with what I called ‘poor man’s tuna fish’. I added the cornichons to the mix and thought it added taste and texture. We didn’t wait 2 hours to munch on these but ate them straight from the bowl. No fancy presentation here! Husband loved it. I liked it. Son and Nephew nowhere around to taste this, but I think Nephew would like it, Son not so much (a pattern here?). This might be good formed into a ball and rolled in something, maybe shredded cheese. This would make a nice addition to an assortment of appetizers.
