Recipes Across America – Tomato Sandwich

You may think, wow a recipe for a tomato sandwich?  And I would have to say YES!

As you may know already, but we have a new and amazing cookbook, Recipes Across America.  Yes, it features recipes from across America!  So you know these are some delicious recipes.  You can just click on the book to order your copy today!

I chose Tomato Sandwiches as one of my favorites to tell you about.  Yes, it is a simple recipe, but it represents the South and ME!  I love tomato sandwiches and cannot wait each year for summer tomatoes to ripen.  My summer is just not complete without quite a number of these delicious sandwiches.  The juicier the tomato the better the sandwich.  It is just not a tomato sandwich if you don’t have tomato juice running down your hands and chin from a messy sandwich!  When I make my sandwich, I prefer to use Bunny bread.  I sometimes have to settle for regular white bread because it can be hard to find in Alabama, but Bunny bread is the best.  I don’t toast my bread, I like it when that soft white bread sticks to my teeth! Oh and don’t forget the black pepper, lots of black pepper!  The ultimate tomato sandwich is of course the BLT!  I hope you got to enjoy a tomato sandwich or three this summer!

Tomato Sandwiches from Recipes Across America

Use garden fresh tomatoes for the sandwich. It’s simple, but what a summertime treat!


  • 8 slices white bread, toasted if desired
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, divided
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Spread four slices of bread with half of the mayonnaise. Top with tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Spread remaining mayonnaise over remaining bread; close sandwiches. Yield: 4 servings.


Happy Eating!

  1. Actually I have ate those for years ……..and I am not in the south…when I was a child …. young…my mother use to fix them all the time…still eat them and I am a senior now…and I still love them….:)

  2. My mother was from Pa. and she ate tomato sandwiches all the time. It was her favorite sandwich. So I don’t think it is southern thing.
