Boy this brings back childhood memories! This sandwich reminds me of my late Grandpa Tom so I just had to make it. He always planted tomatoes in his garden and used to make this for me when I was a kid. We never used lettuce and always topped it with salt, pepper and plenty of mayo. He'd enjoy his with an ice cold beer and I'd enjoy mine with a tall glass of Kool Aid. This definitely is the classic gardener's relaxing meal as the submitter states. Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best.


I have always made this! And I love it! I only do one thing different. I use mayo instead of the butter. Very yummy! And very quick to make!


Well there's nothing better on a hot summer day. But I have to say, a tomato sandwich without MAYO might as well stay home. I give you credit for listing a common gardner's summertime treat! YUMMY.
