Tomato Sandwiches

Hi,
Anyone here ever eat Tomato sandwiches? Just fresh from the garden, ripe tomato, salt, and white bread. One of my favorite summer time pleasures.

    this is my alltime favorite sandwich on white bread- but add a spot of your favorite mayo (mine is Hellman's) and the tomatoes MUST be fresh from the garden- still a little warm- add salt and fresh ground pepper- I'm in heaven!

    As the song says, "The only two things that money can't buy is True Love & Home Grown Tomatoes"!

    My wife eats mayo sandwiches - plain white bread & mayo, that's it. And actually she uses Miracle Whip---Disgusting!

    Welcome to RF, TooPhat!!

    I love mine with some salt & pepper on warm ciabatta.
    Best with really GOOD tomatoes... as all of above.
    [Sometimes I add a sprinkling of cilantro...]

    I do believe tomato sandwiches are top drawer, using FRESH GARDEN GROWN fruit. Here in the high desert, those morsels are hard to come by. However, we have friends who grow several certified organic delicious items, including tomatoes grown in their backyard. I simply use the fairly new whole grain white bread, some mayo,a touch of salt and pepper, DIG IN AND ENJOY! Goes to show that the finished product is only as good as the ingredients from whence you began.

    Summer tomatoes, Evangeline Maid bread, good mayo, course salt, and lots of black pepper. Of course, I'd like to add bacon, please!

    Where I grew up. central new york, everybody either grows tomatos or has tons of friends that grew to many tomatos, plus cucumbers, hot peppers, sweet peas, pole beans, eggplant, zucchini, squash and garlic. About the only vegetable you buy, at road stands is sweet corn. So on white bread, with Hellman's (has to be), salt and pepper

    This morning for brekky!

    They were not homegrown, but the produce manager at the local supermarket takes pride in his tomatoes and when he gets an exceptional batch he gives me a shout if he sees me in the store. Local grown, vine ripened and not waxed and I couldn't believe it .88 a pound! Bought five pounds, figured I could always make salsa if the taste wasn't up to snuff... I gotta go back for more, these actually taste homegrown delicious.

    So breakfast was whole wheat bread, big, thick, juicy slices of tomato, Vidalia onion, with an all beef hot dog and dill spear on the side. Yellow mustard on the onion side of the bread real mayo on the tomato side.

    Heaven.

    Thick slices of Juicy red-ripe garden fresh big-as-the-bread tomatoes, and on one slice spread a layer of Cheese Whiz and on the other slice a thick layer of good ole Miracle Whip. Mmmmm Good Eating!

    Hello All,
    We experience joyful moments with tomatoes.
    It doesn't matter how it is served or prepared.
    Whether in a salad, plucked and eaten off the vine,
    squeezed and pressed into juices or sauces,
    placed as supplement in sandwich, or, as I like,
    as the only ingredient of a sandwich, each tomato is individual in taste, texture, and aroma.
    The tomato is trully a gift from God.
    And the honour of the tomato is that
    it can blend, enrich, and fulfill the tastes
    of meats, fruits, and other vegetables, and
    yet, can stand alone in giving joy to the tastebuds
    and health to the body.
    Oh, if tomatoes only had lips for me to kiss...
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    I LOVE tomato sandwhiches on toasted bread :-)with Hellman's of course lol
    This year we planted Brandywine (heirloom) and they are producing like gang busters lol.
    I was just thinking when I typed 'heirloom' funny...these are the kinds (of tomatoes) I remember growing up...the intense tomato flavor. Typing heirloom made me feel so old hahahahaha ( I am 49 )

    I grew up on tomato sandwiches, but my family always used Hellman's mayo never miracle whip.

    I can't stand miracle whip. The first time I tasted it I thought it was spoiled.

    I normally do not eat white bread, but a tomato sandwich, like a pbj, just doesn't seem to work unless it is on white.

    Every couple of years I make it down to Grainger County, which is outside Knoxville TN, for their tomato festival. There is always a stand or two that sells tomato sandwiches.

    You're talking my language.

    Tomato sandwiches with a glass of iced tea are a summer must here in the South: a large, ripe slice of tomato with a thin layer of JFG Mayonnaise on Wonder Bread. I also dust the tomato with RealSalt Gourmet All Natural Sea Salt. Mercy, it's good!

    JFG mayo is a wonderful Southern brand made in Knoxville. Sadly, I haven't used Hellmann's since they started diluting it with water several years ago.

    I have made the tomato festive in Rutledge many times. It is a huge event. Parking is an issue but the festival is very very good. Like you, I always have to get a tomato sandwich.

    In Grainger County, the tomato is king.

    I read this topic early on Saturday, from work. When I got home, I went to the garden and picked the first beefsteak tomato of the summer and made a tomato sandwich.... which was just as good as you might imagine.

    Phew. Glad I'm not the only one... I grew up on Best Foods [= Hellmans] and last summer a friend from KY raved about Miracle Whip so much I had to try it. Eeeewwwww. I think I gave my jar away in a campground.

    It's funny though, I never tried mayo on my tomato sandwich, but I will today! Luckily here in the UK we get Hellmans.
