This sardine-in-egg sandwich is one that you can actually close your eyes and whip up in seconds.
Sardines are one of the highly nutritious fishes for growing children (read why here). I also have a chart showing the nutrition that are derived from egg, though emphasis was more on the yolk, which is the main ‘koko’ as far as eating egg is concerned.
If you are thinking of a family breakfast or something for the kids to take to school, then this is a good option like other sandwich recipes or lunchbox ideas…just explore when you are done reading this.
Sardine has its peculiar taste and sweetness that you can eat it alone without adding any spice. However, it is up to you to add some pepper, onions and other types of seasoning. Sometimes, i do add them but I prefer to leave it plain for my little ones or top with vegetables (cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce) or cheese when she feels up to them.
