  • 1 extra large heirloom tomato 2 medium tomatoes may be used instead
  • 8 slices white bread Captain John Durst is my favorite
  • 4 Tbsp Mayonnaise homemade, Duke's, or Hellmann's
  • 1 Tbsp ground pepper approximate value, you'll want to add pepper to taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt optional, to taste


  • Slice tomatoes between 1/3 and 1/2" thick. Spread mayonnaise on one side of each piece of bread. Place one slice of tomato on one mayonnaise-d slice of bread. Repeat four times. Liberally pepper each tomato slice ( fresh cracked is best ). Sprinkle with salt if desired. Place the remaining slices of bread mayonnaise side down on top of the tomatoes to make four sandwiches.
