Subway breakfast review and giveaway (3 winners!)

Recently, I had the chance to try out Subway's new breakfast offerings and was excited to do so!


I'm a Subway fan in large part because you can add tons of veggies to their subs at no cost. Plus, the subs are a normal size, not huge like some places make them. I don't know about you, but when I get a huge sub, I eat more. It just happens. With Subway, I'm eating a more appropriate amount of food.

Anyway, about the breakfast.

My son and I headed to Subway to check out what they had to offer. They have five breakfast sandwiches:
I went with the double bacon, egg and cheese and my son had the black forest ham, egg and cheese, both made with regular eggs (when ordering, you have the option of regular eggs or egg whites). My double bacon option was 220 calories with 10 grams of fat and my son's ham option was 180 calories with 7 grams of fat (if made with egg whites each sandwich would have 30 fewer calories and 3 fewer grams of fat). So, not too bad for what I would consider an indulgent breakfast (we usually don't have ham or bacon on regular days!).

I added a coffee to my breakfast and an orange juice for my son. Overall, we liked our breakfast. The sandwiches tasted fresh -- certainly fresher than those packaged egg sandwiches at most fast-food restaurants. They weren't greasy, either, which was a bonus.

Will I go back and have the Subway breakfast again? Yes, I will. Like I said, I already like Subway but if the breakfast hadn't been good, I wouldn't go again. We both liked what we ordered and I would like to try out some of the other sandwiches, maybe even going for the egg white ones sometimes.

You can check out the nutrition information here (PDF).

Now, how would you like to try some breakfast?

  7. Thanks for the review. I had to comment on something you said though. "packaged egg sandwiches" - when referring to other fast food restaurants.... Just a little fyi for everyone, the eggs at McD's are real - they're just in an odd shape due to the little containers that the eggs are poured into. Some sandwiches are made with the liquid eggs and some are made from eggs that are still in their natural form - an egg. :)

  9. I have seen these sandwiches advertised, and would love to try them. The one I would order is the ham, egg whites, and cheese on an English muffin. I would probably add some bell pepper for crunch and added texture.
