Tomato Cheese Onion Sandwich (beer optional)

This summer was big for changes at our house – and probably the toughest came in July.  Just after celebrating a festive 4th, my husband and I moved our middle daughter (insert deep breath) out of state. New college grad, first (real) job, solo apartment. Packed up and drove 6 hours away.

The weekend was a whirlwind of celebrations and tears.  

You will marvel at the amount of flavor a simple mix of sharp cheddar, tomato and onion can bring to a sandwich.  Can't beat easy & delicious!

Of course, even without the emotion, moving takes tons of time and energy.  To be ready for the weekend marathon, I packed up an old favorite sandwich to eat on the road.  Nothing like nostalgic food at a crossroads!  

Our lunch, Tomato, Cheese Onion Sandwiches, came from a joyful time in my youth—a family vacation to Ireland. My mother had taken a side trip, leaving my dad to manage three kids in a strange country.  He soon discovered made-to-order sandwiches in a local shop that we’d cart off to picnic in St Stephens Green.  Our favorite?  Tomato Cheese Onion Sandwiches.

At the first bite (then and today), we marveled at the flavor punch a simple combination delivered.  The only requirement?  A hearty cheese—this time a 3-year local cheddar.  I added heirloom tomatoes and pungent onions with French bread from a local bakery.

Great with beer. Or water. Or…

If you are taking these on the road, consider packing the sandwiches unassembled.  Just bring an onion, a couple tomatoes, block of cheese, a loaf of bread (don’t forget a serrated knife), and make them when you reach your stopping point.  They feel extra fresh and easy!

Mmmm

Tomato season won’t be with us much longer. And if you have little ones, they’ll be grown before you know it too. (Sob!) Give them an extra hug. 

And if you need a simple comfort food for the road — or an easy and delicious lunch, give this sandwich a try.
