Ok so this recipe is not anything crazy but I just felt like I had to share this simple & delicious sandwich. It is the best summer sandwich. And actually my favorite sandwich ever! When tomatoes are in season, I could have a tomato sandwich for lunch everyday. My grandpa has THE best garden. He is a master tomato grower. If you can’t get your hands on a homegrown tomato, try a farmers market. This sandwich is really only good if you have a quality tomato. Please don’t use a grainy tasteless one! It just won’t be the same.
I don’t have a garden of my own but lucky for me I’ve got lots of family and friends close by that love to share! I got the tomato for this particular sandwich from my brothers garden. He is out of town and said I could just run over and pick anything I need! He’s got a bunch of sweet yellow grape tomatoes that I am dying to make a salad with!
If you have never tried a tomato sandwich, promise me you will try it! And if you have, tell me your favorite way to eat a homegrown tomato?! Oh, and make sure you eat your sandwich with a side of salt and vinegar chips 🙂
- 1 homegrown tomato
- 1-2 slices of 9 grain bread
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- yellow mustard
- butter lettuce
- 1 slice of swiss cheese
- 2 thinly sliced dill pickles (optional)
- salt and pepper
- *natures seasons
- Toast your bread. Spread desired amount of mayonnaise onto bread. Add desired amount of mustard.
- Slice your tomato and layer on the bread. Sprinkle with plenty of salt and pepper. Top with lettuce and then swiss cheese.
- If you want an open face sandwich, leave off the 2nd piece of bread. If I feel like an open face sandwich, I usually leave the pickles off. If I want a thicker, more filling sandwich, I will sometimes add the pickles and other slice of bread.
- *My Grandma loves to sprinkle Mortons "Natures Seasons" in place of salt & pepper on her sandwich and she also adds fresh sliced onions.
