This is a superb vegetable course when tomatoes are in season, and they look great on a buffet table. Sometimes I go all out and buy beefsteak tomatoes as a special treat for family parties. —Cathy Dwyer, Freedom, New Hampshire

"I don't think I added enough salt and my slices were a little too thick. But it was good!"

"No, you cut 4 tomatoes into 4 slices each - 4x4=16 - then spread 8 slices and top w/8 slices."

MY REVIEW

"This receipe confuses me....cut four thick slices then spread 8 slices with cream cheese? How many slices are we talking about? Thanks."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 2, 2010

"I kind of think these wouldn't be eaten like sandwiches, but with a fork and knife. I think "sandwich" is just a description of how they are put together."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2010

"These taste delicious. However, we had trouble keeping ours together as sandwiches. Yummy for us, but I wouldn't serve for company because of the messiness.~ Theresa"
