  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Grease a casserole dish with the olive oil. Line the casserole dish with an even layer of potato slices; top with a layer of sardine fillets. Scatter the diced tomatoes over the sardines. Sprinkle the garlic, basil, and bread crumbs over the tomatoes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 20 minutes.

I made this for supper last night and it was amazing!! Super yummy and easy to prepare. I used lemon and cracked pepper sardines and I added a layer of sauerkraut as well just because I believe that sardines and sauerkraut are soul mates. I also added some sliced onions with the potato layer. Read More

I dont know what I did wrong but it was not that good. I followed the directions all the way. I think my family just likes things with a different flavor. I made mediterranean fish to go along with this casserole. The fish was great! but this not so good. Read More

Tried it as written and while I like all the ingredients together they didn't work. Perhaps with the sauerkraut it would be okay as it seems like it needs something to bind it all together but as is it wasn't awful but it wasn't good. Read More

It was dry. I like all the ingredients separately but flavors didn't blend at all like they do in other casseroles. Read More
