Although the BLT usually steals the spot light at this time of year with all of the field ripened tomatoes around, another great way to enjoy them is simply in an open-faced sandwich covered in melted cheese. It is really hard to beat the tomato and cheddar combo, especially if that cheddar is all melted and good but throw a touch of tangy mayo and fresh cracked black pepper and you've really got a winner in under 10 minutes!
