Tomato Sandwich
  • 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
  1. Toast your bread. Spread desired amount of mayonnaise onto bread. Add desired amount of mustard.
  2. Slice your tomato and layer on the bread. Sprinkle with plenty of salt and pepper. Top with lettuce and then swiss cheese.
  3. 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.
  4. *My Grandma loves to sprinkle Mortons "Natures Seasons" in place of salt & pepper on her sandwich and she also adds fresh sliced onions.
It is very important to toast the bread. If you have a quality tomato, they are very juicy. So if you toast the bread it helps the bread not get too mush from all the yummy juice. Make sure you use plenty of REAL mayonaise. Although I like miracle whip sometimes, this sandwich is best with the real stuff. Feel free to use whatever cheese you prefer. Also, any lettuce will do, but I love that butter lettuce stays fresh and has a nice balance between being crisp and soft.
