My husband's friend Roger gave us this recipe.
During the autumn months Bill and Roger sometimes watch a few football games together on Saturdays, but during the summer months they sit outside at Roger's Antique store.
While sitting in the beautiful gardens Roger built, the two of them solve all the world problems, and work up quite an appetite. Roger usually whips them up a couple of these.
I have been hooked ever since Bill showed me how Roger makes them.
Addicting Tomato Sandwich
(Just try to stop at one)
What you'll need:
- 1 garden fresh tomato
- 1 to 2 Tablespoons of soft Cream Cheese
- 1 Tablespoon of Real Mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
- Your favorite slice of bread
Lightly toast 1 slice of bread. While it's toasting, thick slice the tomato.
Remove the bread from the toaster and spread on a generous layer of cream cheese or to your desired thickness.
Remember to always spread the cream cheese first. Take my word for it, cream cheese goes on before the mayo. But you'll only make the mayo-first mistake once, ha-ha, like I did.
Next spread on a layer of real mayo.
You can use Miracle Whip, but it's sweetness seems to over power the rest of the flavors. The flavor blending of the tomato and cream cheese is what you want to taste.
Watch the movie Ratatouille and you'll get what I mean, : )
Top with thick slices of fresh from the garden tomatoes.
The tomato flavor makes the sandwich. I have tried to make this sandwich in the dead of winter with the fake store bought tomatoes and it just doesn't taste the same.
Now sprinkle on salt and pepper to desired taste. Eat.
Num, num, num....
Believe me, you will repeat!
I was in the middle of making Vegetable Juice today, with most of the last of my garden tomatoes and vegetables and made a couple of these for lunch. Yes, two. Yum.
