Tomato Sandwich

Prep Time:

5 mins.


1 Sandwich

Like our Tomato Pie, this is a treat to make when really good tomatoes are available. It’s astonishing how good only three ingredients – tomato, bread and mayonnaise – can be. (Of course, you can embellish the sandwich with avocado or a couple slices of bacon.) Use any bread, but one of the best choices is sturdy country white.



  1. Cut the tomato with a serrated knife into several thick slices. Layer the slices onto paper towels to drain the excess juices.
  2. Arrange the bread on a plate or cutting board. The bread can be toasted, if desired.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (or to taste) on each piece of bread. If you are using just 1 slice, slice it in half after spreading.
  4. Layer the tomatoes on one piece of bread and season with salt and pepper (optional).
  5. Top with the second piece of bread, press together, and cut in half.
  6. Serve immediately.
