  • 2 slices bread (I used Wonder bread)
  • 2 thick slices tomato (I used a "Better Boy" beefsteak type of tomato) - make sure your tomato is ripe but firm!
  • 2 tbsp Duke's mayonnaise (divided between the 2 slices of bread)
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper (divided between 2 slices of bread)
  • 1/8 tsp salt (divided between the 2 slices of bread - use a pinch extra to salt the tomatoes!)


  1. Toast the 2 slices of bread to golden perfection. Slather 1 tbsp of mayonnaise on BOTH slices of bread. Feel free to add extra mayo if you want it even creamier!

  2. Divide 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper between the 2 slices of bread and sprinkle it on top of the mayonnaise

  3. Divide the 1/8 tsp of salt between the 2 slices of bread and sprinkle it on top of the mayonnaise.

  4. Slice 2 thick slices of a ripe but firm tomato. Add the slices on to one side of the sandwich. Add an extra pinch of salt to the top of the tomatoes.

  5. Carefully place the 2 slices of bread together and enjoy! Serve with kettle chips!
