Summertime is approcing fast. Garden full of tomatoes and have no idea what to do with the rest?

Growing up in Michigan ever summer I would enjoy these sandwichs. Grab a couple tomato slices and some mayo with toasted buns and I am on my way to happy town.

Now I live in Florida so the summers seem to be never ending and honestly tomatoes are one of my sons all time favorite snacks. I recently introduced him to these amazing beautys and he is completely hooked just like I was when I was a kid

Now if you have never had one of these amazing sandwiches then you are truly in for a wonderful treat. Here is the recipe


  • 2 slices dense whole grain bread with lots of seeds (my favorite is Eli’s Health Loaf)
  • 1 medium beefsteak tomato (New Jersey or otherwise), perfectly ripe
  • 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 pinch kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper


  1. Toast the bread to your liking (I like mine nice and crispy, but I know some prefer a lighter toast).
  2. Let it cool for a bit while you core and cut the tomato into 1/8-inch slices.
  3. Slather one side of each piece of toast with about a teaspoon and a half of mayonnaise (more or less if you like) and layer as many of the tomato slices as you can on top of one one piece of toast.
  4. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Top with the other piece of toast, cut in half (vertically or diagonally – the choice is yours, so go wild).
  6. Eat immediately, with a side of napkins to catch the tomato/mayo juices that will undoubtedly dribble down your chin.
