    BROILED SARDINES--I
    Broil a dozen large sardines on a double broiler. Lay on fingers of toast, garnish with lemon, and serve with Maître d'Hôtel Sauce.

    BROILED SARDINES--II
    Drain the fish and broil quickly on a double-broiler. Serve on toast and garnish with lemon and parsley.

    BROILED SARDINES--III
    Drain large sardines, broil, lay on fingers of hot buttered toast, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, and brown in the oven.

    BROILED SARDINES ON TOAST
    Drain large sardines, skin carefully, broil on a double-broiler, arrange on fingers of hot buttered toast, and pour over a tablespoonful of melted butter and a cupful of canned tomatoes. Boil slowly until tender, take up carefully, rub the sauce through a coarse sieve, bring to the boil, and add a cupful of cream beaten smooth with a tablespoonful of flour. Cook until thick, stirring constantly; take from the fire, add a teaspoonful of minced parsley, pour over the fish, and serve.

    BAKED SARDINES--I
    Skin a dozen sardines and heat in the oven. Drain the oil from them, bring to the boil, add one cupful of water, a teaspoonful of Worcestershire Sauce, and salt and pepper to season. Take from the fire, add the yolk of an egg beaten with a teaspoonful each of vinegar and made mustard, bring to the boil, pour over the fish, and serve with toasted crackers.

    BAKED SARDINES--II
    Drain the oil from large sardines, roll in cracker dust, season with pepper and lemon-juice, and brown in the oven. Serve with toasted crackers.

    BAKED SARDINES--III
    Drain and skin a dozen large sardines, put in the oven, and keep warm. Bring the oil to a boil, add a teaspoonful of Worcestershire Sauce and a teaspoonful of tomato catsup. Arrange the fish on fingers of buttered toast, pour over the fish, and serve.

    BAKED SARDINES--IV
    Marinate drained sardines in lemon-juice, then drain, sprinkle with cracker crumbs, and put into a hot oven for ten minutes. Cook together a heaping teaspoonful each of butter and flour, add one cupful of tomato-juice, and cook until thick, stirring constantly. Season with salt, pepper, grated onion, and sugar. Arrange the sardines on toasted strips of brown bread, pour the sauce over, and serve.

    FRIED SARDINES
    Drain large sardines, dip in egg and crumbs, fry, and serve on toast.

    CURRIED SARDINES--I
    Rub to a paste one tablespoonful of butter, one teaspoonful each of French mustard and curry powder, using lemon-juice to make smooth. Drain and skin large sardines, spread with the paste, broil, and serve on toast with a border of broiled tomatoes.

    CURRIED SARDINES--II
    Mix together a teaspoonful each of sugar and curry powder, add a cupful of cream and the juice of half a lemon, bring to the boiling point, add a dozen sardines, and heat thoroughly. Serve on toast with fried apple and sliced fried onion.

    DEVILLED SARDINES
    Skin, split and bone a dozen sardines. Season with salt, pepper, lemon-juice, and made mustard. Let stand for an hour in the seasoning. Broil and serve on toast, garnishing with lemon and parsley.

    SARDINES À LA MAÎTRE D'HÔTEL
    Skin large sardines, arrange on fingers of buttered toast, and heat in the oven. Add to one cupful of Cream Sauce a tablespoonful of grated onion, a teaspoonful of minced parsley, salt and pepper to season, and a tablespoonful of vinegar. Pour over the fish and serve.

    SARDINES À LA PIEDMONT
    Skin a dozen sardines and put in the oven to heat. Put into a saucepan the yolks of four eggs well beaten with one teaspoonful each of malt vinegar, tarragon vinegar, and made mustard. Add a pinch of salt, and a tablespoonful of butter. Stir until thick, but do not boil. Put the sardines on circles of fried or toasted bread, pour the sauce over, and serve.

    STUFFED SARDINES
    Drain the oil from large sardines, skin and bone them, and stuff with chopped mushrooms, fine herbs, and bread crumbs made smooth with brown stock. Wrap in buttered paper, heat thoroughly in the oven, unwrap carefully, and serve on a hot dish.

    SARDINE SALAD
    Drain a dozen large sardines, remove the skin and bone, and lay upon a bed of lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with hard-boiled eggs, chopped fine, pour over a French dressing and serve with toasted crackers.

    SARDINES IN CRUSTS
    Scoop out the crumbs from stale French rolls and toast or fry in deep fat. Cook together a tablespoonful each of butter and flour, add a little boiling water, and cook until thick, stirring constantly. Season with anchovy paste and Worcestershire Sauce, and add drained and flaked sardines. Reheat, fill the shells, fit on the covers, and serve with quarters of lemon.

    SARDINE CANAPES
    Skin, bone, and mash sardines. Rub to a smooth paste, using melted butter and lemon-juice, and seasoning with salt and Tabasco Sauce. Toast small triangles of crustless bread, butter them, spread with the sardine mixture, heat thoroughly in the oven, and serve piping hot as a first course at dinner or luncheon.

    SARDINE IN EGG CUPS
    Cut hard-boiled eggs in halves crosswise and take out the yolks. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each cup. Rub the yolks to a smooth paste with olive-oil and add half a dozen sardines skinned, boned, and mashed. Season with salt, pepper, mustard and lemon-juice, fill the egg cups, and serve on lettuce leaves with French or Mayonnaise dressing.

    SARDINE EGG CUPS À LA BEARNAISE
    Prepare according to directions given in the preceding recipe. Heat in a double-boiler, or in the oven, being careful to keep dry. Pour over a Bearnaise Sauce and serve hot.

    SARDINES À LA CAMBRIDGE
    Boil and chop a peck of spinach. Add one cupful of fresh bread crumbs and four tablespoonfuls of melted butter. Mix thoroughly and add a dozen skinned and boned sardines pounded to a paste. Heat thoroughly, adding stock or water if needed. Put on a platter, shape into a mound, lay sardines on top and garnish with sliced hard-boiled eggs and lemon.

    SARDINE RAREBIT
    Toast strips of bread, lay a broiled sardine on each, and keep warm. Melt one tablespoonful of butter, add two tablespoonfuls of grated cheese, and gradually, as the cheese melts, the yolk of an egg beaten smooth with one fourth of a cupful of cream. When smooth and thick, season with salt and Tabasco Sauce; pour over the sardines and serve. Garnish with lemon and parsley.
