Buffalo Seitan Sandwich

Watching football games hasn’t been the same since I stopped eating meat. Although there is no law that says you must be indulging in hot wings to be able to watch football, it’s the culture that eating hot wings and other fried or weird foods bring to the football game. This dish has become a Sunday football staple and I hope it becomes one for you too.
