Hear me out on this one because the idea of a sandwich solely based around the humble tomato, combined with mayo, may sound weird but is actually a thing in the Southern states of America and here the twist of adding capers and using sandwich bread fried in curry powder in oil elevates the final dish into something quite spectacular and sophisticated I really didn't expect!
The key here is to invest in the best of the late summer tomatoes - watery supermarket toms won't do the job here, you won't regret it - really this may just be my new favourite sandwich!
- 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- ½ tsp. curry powder
- 2 thick slices white sourdough bread
- 2 Tbsp. goodmayonnaise
- 2–3 thick heirloom or beefsteak tomato slices
- Salt, freshly ground pepper
- 1 (heaping) tsp. drained capers
- Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium.
- Add curry powder and whisk to evenly disperse in oil.
- Fry bread until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
- Transfer to a plate.
- Spread 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise over 1 side of fried bread slices.
- Top a slice with tomato slices, season with salt and pepper, and scatter capers over.
- Close sandwich; cut in half AND ENJOY!
