What a treat to have fresh garden tomatoes!

There seems to be something about a tomato fresh from the garden. The flavor profiles are so wonderful when compared to a tomato purchased in a grocery store. I must say, there have been some good tomatoes from farmers markets too. However, these fresh gems are seasonal for us.

Just a Few Times a Year

In Wisconsin, we do not get garden fresh tomato sandwiches year round. Therefore, when the first tomatoes are ripe in the garden, it is such a treat to have our favorite Tomato Sandwich. The tomatoes are so big, hearty, and flavorful.

Just look at the size of these tomatoes!

Thinly sliced tomatoes ready for my sandwich…okay…two sandwiches. I just can’t help it. It has been a year since I have had this last.

I wish I could take credit for these big and beautiful tomatoes, but I can’t. A family friend is an amazing gardener and he brings me tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends.

  • Slice the beef steak tomato approximately 1/4 inch thick. I like to use a serrated knife to slice the tomatoes. I find I can get very thin and evenly sliced tomatoes with little effort. Nothing is worse than trying to cut a tomato with a dull knife.

  • I used two pre-sliced pieces of colby/jack cheese. I also will use colby cheese on this sandwich.
  • I slice a medium sized yellow onion thin and put 2-3 slices on a sandwich. However, you should alter this to your taste.
