FFwD: Sardine Rillettes

I knew this was not going to be a recipe that my family or myself would be able to embrace. So, I made this one at work in what I call my test kitchen :)

Instead of cream cheese I used fromage frais, which is similar in taste but less dense than cream cheese. The cream mixture tasted pretty good before I added the sardines. Once they hit the mix I'll have to say I was not a fan. I don't like fishy fish and sardines definitely fall into that category. It was very easy to make and was enjoyed by most that tried some.

Hope everyone had a great Easter. Now that I've reintroduced chocolate and dessert back into my diet, I have to admit I'm a chocoholic. If it's in the house, it will eventually find its way into my mouth. I'm letting my children eat more chocolate than I normally would just to rid the house of all the chocolate bunnies, chicks and eggs!


  1. Sorry this recipe did not work for you but I'll bet it would be great with
    tuna, or as some have said, salmon. Must try that soon. Tricia and her
    were sweet enough to give hubby and I some delicious chocolate
    candy for Easter. If it is in the house I will eat it, so I tried to freeze
    some or I would definitely be on a sugar high.

  2. Ah, another person who found test subjects :-)

    This was not a simple one!

  3. Why is it that people at work will eat ANYTHING? Even stuff they probably wouldn't eat at home. I did enjoy this and we consumed it all at home, no need for test subjects on this one. Enjoy the chocolate (without sardines).

  4. I feel bad about using my in-laws as test subjects, but they will try anything once. I'd love to see how it turned out with the fromage frais.

  5. Robin, This has been a week of memories, experiences, recipes gone wrong, fire alarms going off and now, a photo mishap. Aw well, on to coconut......... Mary

  6. Test kitchens are a great idea, everyone should have one! It is amazing what people will eat when brought to the office. Hope you are enjoying your chocolate again!

  7. I think I'm just about out of my chocolate coma ;)
