A ridiculously good sandwich

This is going to be a quick post, because I was having my doubts about whether or not I should post something so ridiculously simple. But in the end the freshness and the taste of this sandwich triumphed.

Back when I was in college, we had this amazing cafe really close by that served some of the most amazing snacks and it was a fact that if you couldn't find a person on campus, you'd definitely find them at this cafe. On offer was a range of savory puffs, rolls, cutlets, sweet stuff and sandwiches. This humble tomato cheese sandwich was my favorite. Just recently, out of nowhere I really wanted to have one of these and there was no way that I was going to travel 1 hour to and another hour back just to get a taste of this, considering how easy it was. So I ran to the kitchen and in less than 5 minutes I was happily munching away on one. At that moment nothing could've tasted better. This sandwich is so simple, that nothing can go wrong really.

But don't take my word for it. Try it out yourself and let me know what you think of it. Its a meatless sandwich that I absolutely love.


Tomato Cheese Sandwich
Makes 1 sandwich

2 slices of bread
Butter, to spread
1 tomato, sliced
A slice of cheese
Salt, to taste
Freshly crushed black pepper corns, to taste

Spread butter on one slice and top that slice with slices of tomato. The butter prevents the slice of bread from getting too soggy from the juice of the tomato.

Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the slices of tomato to season it.

If you'd like, you can butter the other slice of bread and place a slice of cheese over it.

Cover the slice of bread that has the tomato slices on, with the one that has the cheese slice on.

Enjoy!!!
