Love this, Jo -- you've got it down pat! I remember once reading in Southern Living that you should eat your fresh tomato sandwich with mayo while standing over the kitchen sink in case the juice runs down your arms. :-D We're looking forward to tomato season here at our house! Hope you have a good weekend and a Happy Fourth of July!Hugs,Denise
The only mayo for a mater sandwich is JFG and you never ruin a mater with pepper :-)This post brings back a lot of childhood memories, both my mom & my granny loved their 'mater sandwiches.
Ha, EG's (Cheshire) version is tomato and egg sandwich. He skips the mayo, choppes tomato into tiny bits and adds equally tiny bits of hard boiled eggs, mixes both and puts it on the buttered white bread sandwich. Do you know that one, as well? Of course no chance of home-grown tomato without greenhouse in these regions....
Oh my that sounds finger-lickin' good
Absolutely ! Only white bread and only Hellmans ( Real Mayo) and a bit of salt and pepper and you are set.Probably the first sandwich I ever made by myself .. growing up in North Carolina and having a grandmother who gardened and taught me how to do small things. It served me well :)
My lunch everyday during the summer!!!
You are so right! About the south and the tomato.The only reason to have hot,hot summer time.
Oh, yes! Waiting (impatiently) for our tomatoes to ripen...and it will be Hellman's for me :) Thanks for whetting my appetite.
Yum! That looks delish! I can't wait for mine to turn red. The green ones look promising, though! That sandwich is most definitely southern. We would add bacon and lettuce to it...never even considering it plain, but it sure looks good to me! I'll eat summer tomatoes any which way!
It looks wonderful! :-)
Jo, you are exactly right about how to eat a tomato sandwich, and for us, it's got to be Duke's. My stepdad used to say tomato sandwiches were best (of course, made like you said) but then wrapped in wax paper to sit for a while. Guess that made them even juicier!
Jo, I like a good tomato on a sandwich...but I have never just eaten tomatoes and mayo.LOL. Fresh food is awesome isn't it? wishing you and yours a great holiday weekend. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
I love tomato sandwiches just as you described. And I'm a northern girl!
Sounds good to me.
That does look delicious. We don't do that often enough with our tomatoes.
Right on all counts!!!Blessings,J
That picture has my mouth watering! My husband never has gotten the thing of tomato sandwiches... most certainly a southern delicacy! :)
