Cowboy Sandwiches

Cowboy sandwiches have always been a family favorite! My great-grandmother Charlotte Kennedy made these for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And all of us have made them for our children and grandchildren....

This is a very simple, fast, delicious, and fun meal to prepare. We love watching sports on T.V. and munching on these goodies!

This was my father's absolute favorite sandwich!

Cowboy sandwich? As the story goes.... the toast shape is the outer part of a branding iron, the round tomato slice represents the word CIRCLE, the bacon represents the letter X, and the cheese represents the cattle ranch.... Circle X Ranch!

*** If there weren't tomatoes available, they were made without... still a good sandwich!

3
Put two slices of bacon in the shape of an X on top of the tomato.
