Tomato sandwiches are a true Southern favorite. They are even better when you grow the tomato itself. This was my first tomato, grown in a container. And of course, you really must use Duke’s brand of mayonnaise.



1 ripe Tomato, sliced.
2 slices of white loaf bread.
Dukes’ Mayonnaise to taste.
Salt and Pepper to taste.


Rinse the tomato under cold running water. Pat dry with a paper towel.
Slice the tomato as desired to fit the slice of bread.
Cover one slice of the bread with tomato slices.
Add black pepper.
Add salt.
Coat generously with Duke’s Mayonnaise.
Add the top slice of bread.
Press the sandwich together firmly with the palm of your hand.
Grab a paper towel to catch the drips that will be running down your chin.


Don’t stop with just one, enjoy two. I’m not going to tell.
