- I hate mayonaisse, but I need it on both sides of the bread. Very lightly.
- Mustard goes on one side only
- Cheese must not touch mayonaisse
- Meat should be folded or layered somehow, not just placed flat in a stack on the bread
- Lettuce should be shredded or one large leaf, not several small leaves
- Tomatoes should be sliced thinly, with not too many seeds
- Avocado should be mashed up into a paste and spread either on the bread or the meat
- Cheese should not be on the same side as the meat
- Pepperoncini peppers should be diced up small with the seeds removed
- Deli meat sandwiches get salt and pepper at the end

The way of the sandwich
My mother makes the best sandwiches. She was always very deliberate and detailed about how she put a sandwich together. Some things related to food I am indifferent to, but I am quite particular about how my sandwiches are made. I have a list of rules that Mr. J often forgets.
It sounds more complicated than it is. If it sounds complicated, that's because it is.
