Facebook just reminded me today is the day I learned the Big Lesson. What was that lesson? A lot of people love the Mater and Mayo sandwich. Not "like", not "kinda enjoy", but LOVE. (scroll down for a great updated recipe)

I'd never heard of the mater and mayo sandwich. Maybe that's a sign my childhood was severely lacking, but I do love a simple BLT (with butter lettuce, thick bacon, and a garden fresh tomato). It'sthing of beauty. But a sliced tomato on bread and a schmear of mayo? I just didn't get it.

But I do now. Especially if it's made with a tomato is locally grown. Om nom nom...nom!

My one rule is that it must be made with mayonnaise, not Miracle Whip.  Miracle Whip is the devil (if you need proof, click here).

So how 'bout it? Mato-Mayo sammich...yes or no?

ps - Here's a great updated version of the M&M Sammich
