Classic Southern Tomato Sandwich

The classic southern tomato sandwich, also known as "Mater" Sandwich. Southerners anxiously await tomato season for this sandwich. When you're in the heat of summer in the south and it's just too darn hot to cook inside, a cool sandwich is ideal.
2 slices soft white bread
1 to 4 tablespoons  mayonnaise, preferably Dukes depending on how "mayonnaisy" you like it
1 medium to large tomato, cored and thickly sliced - garden tomatoes or large Beefsteak are usually a favorite
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
Thinly sliced onion - optional
Spread the mayonnaise on the top of 2 slices of bread. Place the sliced tomato on top of one bread slice. Place the remaining slice of bread, mayonnaise side down, on top of the tomato. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper. Cut the sandwich in half and eat.
I recommend serving with a glass of Sweet Tea, of course.
