I have developed an allergy to dairy and now can't have cheese. I'm a bit picky so I'm having trouble finding a replacement for cheese in my daily sandwiches.

It's always cheese and ham or cheese and bacon or... and try as I might every time I make a sandwich I just feel like meat & salad isn't enough. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on replacements.

I mean replacements as in other food stuffs not soya cheese etc (which is not very tasty at all)

I think perhaps this question could be worded differently, but I'd make the argument that there is something salvageable here. I don't see how it's different them most of the other questions here:… For example, this seems very similar to this:… – talon8 Oct 11 '12 at 19:55
As someone else who can't eat (most) cheeses ... let me say that you get over it. It's a royal pain when you're at a restaurant and there's hardly anything you can eat (and if you try asking for it without cheese, you'll have to send it back 1/2 the time) ... but it is possible to get used to not having cheese. Now, all of that being said -- what's the extent of allergy? Cow cheeses only, or all cheeses? What part of the cheese do you miss (tang, creaminess, salt, etc?) – Joe Oct 14 '12 at 11:24

Have you tried laying down a semi-thick layer of your butter substitute of choice? I can't guarantee it will taste right on every sandwich build, but it might do the trick for some.

Also, Galaxy Foods makes a product called Rice Cheese (it's not a soy cheese). I've personally never had it, nor do I know what flavors it comes in other than American. Here is a link to a site where someone posted a small blurb about their experience with it. It might be worth checking out.
