There's Something About Mackerel

What do you do when you have some Mackerel in a can and 5 minutes to spare? You make a tasty Retro WW lunch, of course.

The only problem is - what recipe to choose? There are so many possibilities, but I narrowed it down to two of my faves:

The almost famous Snappy Mackerel Casserole and the ever-popular Mackerelly!

I decided to go with the Snappy Casserole, because I was in the mood for something, well, snappy.

It's a simple recipe consisting of 2 ounces canned Mackerel, 1 cup of (legal) Tomato Sauce, 1 ounce Cheddar Cheese, and 1 slice of toast, quartered. Bake the first 3 ingredients in a hot oven for 5 minutes until bubbly, and serve with toast quarters. Makes one serving. I'm pretty sure it is supposed to be accompanied by three glasses of water, too. I have no idea why.

There is only one word to describe this dish: SNAPPY!

One might also dare to describe it as MACKERELLY, but that would just be wrong wouldn't it? That's another dish for another day.

Maybe the 3 glasses of water are to take the yucky taste out of your mouth! Love you, Mimi!
