I loved going on school trips as a child, mainly because it meant that I would get my favourite packed lunch! My Mum would always get me the nice soft bridge rolls & fill them with Sardine & Tomato paste! I have been thinking of a way to incorporate it into a recipe for some time & I have finally done just that. It has also turned out to be one of my cheapest & easiest recipes!
