This isn't necessarily an authentic recipe but I love these subs. It's mostly the toasted mayo and cheese- along with the combination of carrots and cilantro that make this different from any other sub/sandwich that I usually make. This recipe makes two subs.

I love to make food and to eat. I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
