12 Ways to Jazz Up a Classic Tomato Sandwich

We are in the heart of tomato harvesting season, and one of the simple joys in life is a sandwich made with a perfectly ripe tomato.

This southern delicacy can be made with an heirloom tomato from your local farmer’s market, a homegrown variety, or even a good tomato from your grocery store. As long as it’s ripe and flavorful, you can’t go wrong!

You’re probably familiar with the classic tomato sandwich:

Two slices of soft white sandwich bread
Good quality creamy mayo (Dukes, Hellman’s, etc.)
Thick slices of ripe tomato
Salt & freshly ground black pepper

But here are 12 ways to jazz up your next tomato sandwich:

  • Fresh basil & fresh mozzarella (Caprese!)
  • Thinly sliced cucumber (very British!)
  • Thinly sliced sweet onion
  • Pimento cheese
  • Crumbled goat cheese
  • Sliced Vermont cheddar
  • Cream cheese instead of mayo (try herbed cream cheese!)
  • Pesto (see my recipe)
  • Hummus instead of mayo
  • Greek seasoning
  • Everything bagel seasoning
  • Dashes of Holtkamp Heat Wave Hot Sauce!

Bonus tip: in the winter months, Campari tomatoes should be readily available in your grocery store for you to enjoy tomato sandwiches year-round.
