One of the great pleasures of summer for any southerner is the enjoyment of a fresh tomato sandwich. It is one of the most divine tastes to have ever emerged from a southern kitchen.

If you were raised in the south, you know exactly what I mean – two slices of white bread thickly spread with real mayonnaise topped with slices of fresh, homegrown tomato seasoned generously with salt and pepper. Best eaten while standing over the sink to catch the juices that run right off your elbow. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

A couple of weekends ago, I thought I’d take that simple, perfect concept and do something different with it. This Roasted Tomato Sandwich was the result. It in no way supplants its classic counterpart but stands on its own as a glorious way to enjoy my favorite summer produce.

And as delicious as that perfect summer tomato sandwich is, this one with its roasted tomatoes, olives, and basil runs it a pretty close second. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. A great tomato sandwich is one of the greatest joys of summer! What a great idea to roast the tomatoes to bring out the natural sweetness. I’m now craving this, Lana!

  2. My friends, who are wonderful large scale farmers, plant a few tomatoes for family and friends. Their method for distribution – there is a table under a tree at their farm shop building. Pull in and see if there are tomatoes on the table. If so, help yourself. It’s the most wonderful thing in the summer to get one of those really vine ripe tomatoes, come home, and enjoy “red sunshine.”

    I am going to try this method. I may add a little bacon to the roasted tomatoes. That wouldn’t be too much, would it?

  3. I honestly believe I could eat a tomato sandwich every single day when fresh tomatoes are in season…but I’ve never roasted them. I also believe you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Have to try this stat!

    1. I could have one every day, too, Barb. Although this is a different way to enjoy fresh tomatoes, it will not replace my love for the classic! It’s also a good way to enjoy a tomato sandwich when garden tomatoes are out of season. The roasting really improves the flavor.

  4. That ciabatta! It looks incredible. And these sandwiches look like an amazing way to put them to use! I’ve never had a tomato sandwich but I’ll have to try these for my husband, a real tomato lover. :)

  5. We’ve been enjoying fresh tomato sandwiches from our garden…you’ve just inspired me to change things up by roasting the tomatoes! Looks delicious Lana!
