Epic Tomato Sandwich

EPIC TOMATO SANDWICH

I figure life is complicated enough, so a super simple but epically good tomato sandwich is one of life’s pleasures we should all have in our repertoire. Over the years I have continuously tweaked things until I came up with this epic tomato sandwich that is my go-to. The tomato sauce is also epic on burgers.
