I too like the bacon, avocado, and tomato version: BAT.

But I personally can't stand mayo, so it's pesto for me!

Bread(lightly Toasted)
Salad Dressing
Tomato
Lettuce
Turkey bacon
Salad Dressing
Bread(Lightly Toasted)

Sliced diagonally. Serve

Actually the turkey bacon is good and not as greasy, better for your cholesterol too.

This is actually with turkey, but the tomatoes are the star. I prefer Romaine or another type of lettuce, but I only had ice berg. I like some fresh ground pepper on my tomato sandwiches. I can do Miracle Whip or a good Mayo, but I prefer Mayo---just a thin layer.

This is as close as you can get to God on Earth. Aunt Millie's Potato Bread slathered with Hellman's mayo and a thick slice of Earl's Faux peppered with coarse ground pepper and sea salt.

IMHO... The best tomato sandwich in the world other than the BLT, is a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich. White bread, cheese on both sides and garden grown in between.

I like my sandwiches made from ciabatta bread sliced length ways so there is plenty of crust on both sides.

I use the McCormick Mayonnaise with lime if I can find it, if not I make my own.

The lettuce should be of the red leaf variety or romaine.

The swine from which the bacon is made shall be of the educated type with impeccable taste never eating anything from which a gourmet chief has not prepared.

The tomato should be of the utmost finest fruit from the garden without any blemishes and of such grand proportions that it should be at least 6 inches in girth.
A slice of ¾ inch shall be cut from the center most regions of the tomato and the rest discarded out the window to the starving peasants waiting in the common area below.

The plate from which the sandwich is consumed should be new from which no food has ever touched so as not to contaminate the taste.

A good porter served in a tall glass should be served and a 2 hour nap afterwards shall be taken.

Then and only then will you have a tomato sandwich.

I love the stipulation of the sandwich being cut on the diagonal in someone's comments! It brings back memories of Mrs. Towle down the street, who buttered the bread for every sandwich, even if it was peanut butter and jelly...

I have to say my favorite sandwich with a tomato (though BLT is a very close second) is tomato, Kraft mayo, and braunschweiger (which is approximately liverwurst, but braunschweiger sounds more hip ) on white potato bread. And it needs something crunchy on the side, like pickled hot peppers or salt&vinegar chips. And a dark beer. And a foot massage.

Aaaaah.

You are NOT talking about tomato sandwiches in the middle of winter - in February for heaven's sake - in the middle of a snowstorm - when we are a full 6 months from the very earliest real tomato to be had in New England!

Thank you Granny for the reality check. I was reading this thread and must have been in some kind of trance, when I got to your post, I looked at the calander and was very startled! Think I'll go back to dreaming.
