Tomato Sandwich

A favorite summertime lunch treat of mine is tomato sandwiches, eaten with whole grain bread, cheddar cheese and mayo. Actually I eat one just about every day :) It was a little cooler yesterday so I baked a batch of Oatmeal-Wheat bread.

The cheddar cheese is produced by Greenfield Farms
and the tomatoes were purchased at the Maple Valley Sugarbush and Farm stand at the Coit Road Market.

Oatmeal-Wheat Bread

2 packages yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 cups cooked oatmeal (not instant)
1/2 cup warm buttermilk
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Mix the yeast and water, let stand for 5 minutes. Mix again.

Add oatmeal, buttermilk, sugar, butter, salt and whole wheat flour and all purpose flour. Work in enough to form a soft dough. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Place in a large bowl and cover with damp cloth. Let rise in a warm place (not oven) for 2 hours.

Punch down the dough and let rest for 10 minutes. Form 2 loaves and place in buttered loaf pans. (9x5x3inch)

Redampen the cloth and cover the loaves, allow to rise another 45 minutes in a warm place until proofed.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes.

OK.....love the mater sandwiches....but cheese?!?!?!?! ;)

Looks good, I wouldn't mind trying it with swiss.

Love mater sandwiches with lots of pepper!

Swiss, cheddar, provolone .. they are good with any or none. I will miss the maters the most with the coming of winter.

I already miss them, pulled up plants this week, and so has everyone else b.c of bad drought!

I am sorry to hear that Zoot, we had a mild drought, which is over. Unfortunately the northwestern part of the state and central also got severe flooding with the rains that came.

The farmers here in the NE were at risk of their wells running dry with the lack of rain.

Crazy weather here ... one or two days it will be in the 90's, like today, and then in the 70's like tomorrow.
