sardines and blue cheese spread

The reason why I like this dish so much is that greasy sardines filets get baked for an hour in blue cheese and puff pasty. What better circumstances could a spread wish for?

editor's note

To make the spread is super easy to do. However to create and bake a vol au vent. Will require some focus and patience. This recipe is to prepare the spread. That you scoop into the pastry box. Before you slide it in to oven. With this methodology you profit from the circulation of hot air. And the pastry fat that is evaporating. Both contribute to a steaming experience. That make your mix of sardines fillets and blue cheese more than interesting


  • 1 tin of sardines fillets
  • 125 gr. of blue cheese 
  • 1 knob of garlic
  • 1 cut out of puff pastry ( spare large round cut out of pastry sheet. And cover spread. That is in pastry box. This to prevent the spread will dry out in oven)
