Comment on Maine-Style “Italian” Sandwich by Caden Dahl.

One of the things I love about making food yourself is that you can change up the ingredients to suit your needs or wants. As you said, you changed out the cheese for provolone which I would have put in pepper jack. Do you think if I went to a place and had them make this for me, they would be able to change things out?

Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
