Veggie Cheesesteaks

Can I have cheesesteak sandwich but hold the steak.?? This is how I would order my vegetarian version of cheesesteak sandwich at the restaurant. Just because we vegetarians don’t eat meat, we can still enjoy good cheesesteaks. A twist on a classic American recipe, with plenty of veggies and gooey melted cheese, my vegetarian cheesesteak sandwiches are perfect for anytime meal!!

The flavor on the vegetables is rich and deep, and it’s a very satisfying sandwich. This vegetarian “cheesesteak” is made with sautéed mushrooms, peppers, onions and broccoli along with my special sandwich/burger spicy spread. I add this spread to almost all of my sandwiches, burgers or rolls I make. It adds so much flavor and depth to the dish.
