If I had to eat one meal every single day for the rest of my life, this would be it. While some prefer this in regular sandwich form, I like to maximize tomato intake by eating it open faced.
Here are the basic ingredients:
- The best, freshest tomatoes that you can find. In the summer there are many to choose from at your local farmer's market, in the off season cherry tomatoes or Kumato tomatoes will have the best flavor.
- Hellman's regular mayonnaise, seriously, it has to be Hellman's, full-fat, no-frills mayo.
-The best bread you can find, toasted. Some prefer country bread or white bread, but for me nothing will ever beat a fresh Montreal bagel.
-Fresh ground pepper
Instructions: toast your bagel, spread mayo, add sliced tomatoes, season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Here is another tasty tomato sandwich that Dave and I made this morning with an avocado that needed to be eaten: we took our toasted Montreal bagel and drizzled olive oil over it. In a separate bowl we took one avocado, mashed it with a fork, added fresh lime juice, chili flakes, and salt and pepper to taste. We then spread the avocado over the bagels, added our fresh tomatoes just like the recipe above, and added more salt and pepper to taste. One avocado made for two Montreal bagels worth of spread but could potentially be spread out to cover three...
