Sardine Sandwich
Print Recipe

A healthy and quick open faced sandwich made with mashed avocado and sardines. Then it’s broiled and topped with a few simple toppings.

Adapted from Alton Brown's sandwich.


1 (4 ounce) can sardines in olive oil (about 4 large sardines)
1 avocado, mashed
Red onion, sliced thin
2 slices thick bread
Olive oil
Black pepper


1) Remove pitt from avocado and add to two slices of thick bread. Mash onto bread like a spread. Use 1/2 an avocado per bread slice.

2) Top each half of bread with a few sardines, roughly chopped.

3) Top each sandwich with slivered red onion, capers, a drizzle of olive oil, and some fresh black pepper.

4) Bake sandwiches at 425 for 5-6 minutes or broil for 2 minutes.

5) Serve immediately!
