Breakfast or brunch? Sardine sandwich + Zobo


I was at the African store earlier this week trying to get some supplies and I came across this tin of sardine and so many memories came rushing back. I remember eating sardine and bread for breakfast most weekday mornings and feeling like I could take over the world (OK maybe not). I decided to recreate the breakfast staple for some and refine it a little. I made these with regular white Italian bread from my local grocery store. some butter, cucumbers, and some good ol sardines.  I had them with some zobo that I also found at the African store!!! I had not drank this in a while and it was a good way to start my morning! You can try it if you never have and let me know what you think.
