Go-to Lunches: Sardines on toast

Tinned sardines served over 2 slices of toasted bread (home-made in this case)
make a quick, healthy and delicious lunch!
I missed out on over 30 years of sardine enjoyment...... what a shame.  I had disliked sardines for as long as I can remember, I had just never been able to get over the smell and the thought of eating whole little fishes, bones and all.  When I was pregnant, my doctor encouraged me to eat sardines for the amazing health benefits (high calcium content and all the good omega oils you find in them).  So, I dutifully bought a few tins, and in my pantry they sat, unopened until well after the birth of my second child

One day, I was working from home, and I needed something quick for lunch, and there was nothing in the house.  So I thought I would open that trusty tin of sardines, figuring that worse case scenario, I would throw it out.  Well, it was TERRIFIC!  To be honest, I still have a hard time believing that I enjoy them so much.  They have become one of my favourite go-to lunches.  Seeing as I am still very new at enjoying sardines, does anyone out there have interesting ways of enjoying them?  Do you have any foods you spent a lifetime detesting, only to learn later in life that you really enjoy them?
