Grandma's Summertime Sandwiches

"I've got those summertime, summertime sandwiches." 

Sweet summertime! Springfield is finally warming up to my favorite temps, and I'm so glad tomato season is upon us. 

Did you know some people don't like tomatoes? Can you imagine that?? Can you believe that some of the same people who don't like tomatoes do like ketchup? Some people are crazy.

This isn't an entire post dedicated to tomatoes, and I'm sure some of you are upset about that. This is another food post. Fun fact: There are more food posts than any other category on my blog because I have a looooot to learn in the kitchen. But I'm working on it! Here is another one of my grandma's recipes that I've come to love.

Ingredients (Makes one sandwich):
- English muffin, cut in half
- One (or two or three) slices of cheese
- Pre-cooked bacon (because everything is better with bacon)
- Basil and oregano, to taste

Basically, you put all of the ingredients on the English muffin, and then broil it on high for about 5 minutes. Easiest recipe ever! I'm a big fan of homemade food that can be prepared quickly because sometimes I just get really hungry. 

And there ya have it! Grandma was pretty good at making up recipes

Happy Memorial Weekend, friends! I hope yours is filled with bacon and tomatoes, cheese, and laughter. 


  1. I'm going to have to try this. Looks delicious!

    1. I highly recommend it. :) I could probably eat 'em every day and still be happy about it!

  2. My favourite kind of recipe ... Simple, easy to make and tasty !! Can't ever go wrong with bacon and cheese xx

  3. Yum, these little sandwiches look so good! It's hard to eat in the summer when it's so hot outside, so I love the idea of these light dinners/lunches. {stopped by from the Jack of All Trades link-up}

  4. I just finished my breakfast smoothie, and these are making my stomach growl. Easy & delicious is right up my alley! I'll have to pick up some yummy tomatoes at the Farmer's Market this weekend.
