someone made a suggestion of toasting the bread and hitting it with olive oil

Yeah - good old Hellman's mayo is kosher, so is Miracle Whip ... but so are mustards, ketchup, BBQ sauce, Horseradish sauce, etc. Depending on what you are putting in your sandwich, and the type of bread/roll/bun you are using you have a wide variety of salad dressings you could use, too - Italian, French, Russian, etc.

Vegenaise is a vegan mayonaise, which means no dairy and no eggs. It is by far the best vegan mayo that I've had and tastes better than many brands of the real thing. If it's purely a kosher issue, this is a winner.

no dairy, so a vegan or otherwise plant-based margarine would be better.

One of my favorite "no-fat" options is roasted garlic. Take a couple of cloves and squeeze them out onto the bread and smear it around.

I also like different good mustards. Dijon or Dusseldorf (German style) are my favorites.

I agree with Wyogal. Among other things, my DH can't have dairy so I buy a spread which is margarine/butter-like but is soybean based. It actually tastes very good. The brand we get is Earth Balance but there are others and they can be found in the natural foods section of your supermarket's "dairy" department.

mmm...cranberry sauce, mashed avocado, or jam (I know it sounds weird with meat ,but a bit of fruit jam can compliment!)

Humm ... looking back at your Blog where you originally asked this same question (and got one reply) a couple of hours before you posted it here:

Knowing what the target is makes it a little easier to hit the mark.

I never put mayo on a burger, and with the exception of maybe a couple of places you will not get one around these parts unless you order it that way - you'll either get mustard or mustard and ketchup. BBQ is NEVER with mayo, just BBQ sauce. Italian beef (sliced, meatballs, sausages, etc.) - Italian tomato sauce (thought I had better be specific so our UK and Aussie members don't think I'm talking about ketchup ).

Toasting your buns or bread will go a long way in slowing down how quickly a wet sandwich turns soggy - and you don't need to smear it with oil to be effective.
