MAKE THIS: Heirloom Tomato Sammies
Whenever I see food on the internet that looks pretty I am immediately like: WANT
However in the case of this recipe for three ingredient tomato sandwiches that I saw over on one of my favorite blogs Cup of Jo - I was skeptical. Just... tomato sandwiches? No delicious sharp cheeses? No tasty salty meats? Not a pizza? Can't possibly be good. But oh, dear friends, how wrong I was. Heirloom tomatoes, on toasty bread, with a schmear of mayo (put it on the bread when it's warm you guys) and then sprinkling on salt, pepper and perhaps some basil? MOUTH PARTY OMG!
Now you'll note that unlike in the original recipe I used fewer tomatoes, because I bought these at Whole Foods and because I live alone, and just couldn't justify hoarding a wide assortment of pricey heirloom tomatoes in the hopes that I'd actually like these sammies enough to utilize all the food. I also didn't use Hellmans (or Best Foods, the terrible name they gave Hellmans on the West Coast which is - in my humble opinion - an abomination in branding if I ever saw one) because Whole Foods is not down with the mayo that brings out the bestest so I got what I felt was probably the closest and hopefully fattiest of the options. And I was not disappointed.
Hop on over here for the original recipe and then start shoving tomato sammies in your mouth like you just can't stop won't stop. Heirloom tomatoes aren't in season for very long and you don't want to risk serious sammie fomo do you? I didn't think so
