Slapped between two humble slices of bread many fillings take on lives of their own. Here at Southern Living we celebrate the sandwich. From the crustiness of the perfect white loaf to the search for the perfect slice of tomato, the right combination of ingredients takes a sandwich from ho-hum to headliner. In our opinion, you simply can’t beat a classic tomato sandwich. Whether you griddle your bread or season your tomatoes with salt and pepper, the variations on this kitchen staple are endless.
Ditto the BLT: our favorite version is called the Over-the-Top Tomato Sandwich, made with slices of sourdough bread. Not sure what’s left to do with grilled cheese? Maybe you should be using pimiento cheese instead. Got leftovers from Thanksgiving? Some mayo, bacon, and tomato will help you create The Best Leftover Turkey Sandwich Ever. However you slice it, sandwiches are a quick, easy way to get some great food going, and to enjoy wonderful combinations of flavors. Don’t overlook sandwiches—just look right here for great new ways to make them.
