On busy days during this 2018 holiday season, I am making this baon serye on food for school snacks made with Ligo Sardines that are easy and quick to prepare.
My boys and I are already on our last week of school and we are on our exam week this week for the second grading with a miracle of having an early school vacation this year for us ahead of most schools in the city.
Before getting swept away once again with the busy holiday craze, which actually started in November, I am sharing quick and easy Ligo sardines-infused recipes that are perfect for school or even served at home for kids and kids at heart!
Sardines with Mayo Sandwich
1 can of 155 grams Ligo Sardines in tomato sauce (green)
1 pack 80 ml of real mayonnaise
Quick Snack whole wheat sliced bread
How to make it is quick and easy:
Simply place and empty the mayonnaise into a small bowl. Open the Ligo Sardines which is already in an easy-to-open can. It is very nice since it saves you time and effort of opening the can. Then put the sardines into the bowl.
I opted not to put the tomato sauce. You can pour the whole content of the tomato sauce if you like. Mash and mix the sardines with the mayonnaise just using a fork until all ingredients are mixed well.
Then spread the sardines-mayo mix into the two slices of bread. Put them together. Slice the sandwich diagonally.
Wrap in a napkin or place in sandwich ziplock plastic. But if you are against using single use plastic, you can put it in a re-usable snack or sandwich container.
I recently bought the gourmet wheat bread from the Royal Breadhaus bakeshop in the city. They sell it for four big slices in a pack for about P28.00 in their stall in Abreeza Ayala Mall. I can make two sandwiches which can be good for two days for baon or snacks for my little guy at school for recess in the morning. A pair of bread slices can be sliced in half. So he has an option to finish both during morning recess or leave one for their afternoon recess. But I guess since he really liked this one I made, it will only last until morning recess! Hahaha!
I got our fave mayonnaise or if you know how to make your own, do so as you wish. You can also use other spreads or add other ingredients if you like. The more creative you are as long as your child likes what you put in it, that’s good already!
Ligo Sardines Omelette Sandwich
1 can of 155 grams Ligo Sardines in tomato sauce chili added (red)
2 medium eggs
Salt and pepper (optional)
Slices of bread
How to make this sandwich:
Pour the sardines into the cooking pan. We used non stick pan. After a few minutes, add the beaten 2 medium eggs. Cook until the egg is done depending on your child’s preference because some kids don’t like eggs that are not well done or not cooked well.
Place the omelette in a plate and let it cool for awhile. Then place enough amount on two slices of bread.
Cut diagonally or not if you like eating it whole. Wrap in a napkin or place in sandwich ziplock plastic. But if you are against using single use plastic, you can put it in a re-usable snack or sandwich container.
You can opt to use the non chili sardines variety. My son likes spicy sardines already so that’s why that is the variety we used for the omelette.
My little guy loved the sardines mayo sandwich so much. He finished almost all of what I prepared in no time. He even asked for more. He kept asking his dad if he wants more which actually meant he himself wanted to eat his dad’s share when we first tried preparing this at home recently. He even started singing Tom’s Odong na Lami song once again as he saw us using Ligo Sardines to make these baon dishes.
If you have recipes for baon snacks that you like to share using Ligo Sardines, do let me know! I would love to hear your recipes!
