The Best Tomato Sandwich Recipe

“That pinch of sugar is the magic.
Seriously. If this sandwich doesn’t make your tongue jump out of your face and slap you on the back of your head, I’ll eat my hat.”

- Melissa, Back to the Prairie

Tomato Sandwiches

  • Fresh country bread, sliced thick
  • Butter (preferably homemade)
  • Mayonnaise (preferably homemade)
  • Thickly sliced ripe tomatoes
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Granulated sugar

Lightly toast the bread until golden. Slather one slice of bread with butter; slather another slice with mayonnaise. Place the buttered slice butter side up on a plate. Stack with sliced to-matoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with a pinch of sugar. Close the sandwich with the second slice of bread, mayonnaise side down.
