Quick and Easy Hazelnut Sardines Rillettes

Quick and Easy Sardines Rillettes - NotEnoughCinnamon.com

Being more of a savoury girl, I’ve always loved appetizers (more than desserts!) and rillettes are on my top 10 list. Any kind of rillettes, really. I love the ones made with meat or fish. I’ve already shared a quick and easy recipe for salmon rillettes on the blog, and now it’s time for another fish: sardines!

 Lots of rillettes recipes call for heavy cream, and you know me, it wasn’t going to happen. I find that Greek yogurt works perfectly to give this spread the perfect texture and taste, while saving our hips lots of calories. If you have no problem with gluten, you can serve these on toasts but if you do, it’s also delicious on cucumber slices.
