"This is an excellent recipe except for two things. If you went far enough to make this a veggie sandwich, why not go a step further and remove the fat, cholesterol, and harm to the animals and the planet by using a vegan mayo and a vegan cheese. It doesn't take much to make good and delicious into excellent and mouth-watering. So if you want to help make the world a better place - use veganase and veggie cheese."
