Global fast food chain McDonald's is experimenting with new vegetarian options in France by offering Parisians the opportunity to order a sandwich patty made entirely of cheese in place of traditional beef or chicken. The new item is part of a transition of American takeaway cuisine in the European country.
The new sandwich is fittingly titled the Breaded Cheese Sandwich and it is part of the restaurant's winter menu. The dish features a thick cheese patty that is breaded and deep fried to give a crunchy exterior and gooey centre. The sandwich is then topped with lettuce, tomato and sauce and served on a bun as a vegetarian alternative to a meat burger. The dish can also be ordered in a wrap as a healthier version.
