Best Subway Breakfast Items, Ranked


Did you know there are over 38 million unique sandwich combinations you can create at Subway? This endless supply of options is one thing that has made Subway one of the world’s most beloved fast-food destinations. With the recent addition of Subway breakfast subs to their menu at many of their locations, there are even more possibilities to enjoy fresh, fast food!

Here I will give you a look at the Subway breakfast menu and what Subway breakfast might be best for you!

1. Black Forest Ham, Egg, and Cheese

Known for adding a tasty bite to deli sandwiches, Black Forest ham is a type of smoked meat that’s dry-cured in salt.

That said, this sandwich tasted nearly identical to the bacon one. I even had to double-check the inside to make sure I ordered the correct meal.

But after pulling the meat out and sampling it individually, it became clear the Black Forest ham had a sweet nuance that I found much more palatable. Plus its texture was wonderful —  slightly chewy with nice, crispy edges.

The meat was still undeniably salty but was the most tolerable.

Combined with the melted cheese, it formed a nice blend of mildly tangy, slightly sweet, and smoky flavors that was surprisingly tasty. The addition of a sauce, like mustard, would likely improve it, but it was still surprisingly decent as is. 

2. Egg and Cheese

A classic, for sure! Start your day off right with this hearty supply of protein. A 6-inch sub (with the regular flatbread and no added veggies) can get you a full 25 grams of protein. Not to mention a low sugar intake of 4 grams.

With the regular flatbread and no added veggies, you can have a robust breakfast like this Subway breakfast sub for only 450 calories (even less- 420- with egg whites!). You’ll be getting 20 grams of healthy fats (no trans fats), 190 milligrams of cholesterol, 1190 milligrams of sodium, and 45 grams of carbs.

Not to mention all the necessary vitamins you will be supplying your body with! On the regular 6-inch flatbread sub with no additional toppings, you will hit 20 percent of your daily value in Vitamin A, 6 percent of your daily value in Vitamin C, 10 percent of your daily value in calcium, and 15 percent of your daily value in Iron! You can up any of these nutrition values by switching to a more filling type of bread, a more flavorful cheese, adding a variety of veggies, and splashing some savory sauce on top.

In summary, the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sub off the Subway breakfast menu would be a great source of protein for the start of your day.

3. Bacon, Egg, and Cheese

The flatbread was the perfect carb to hold everything together since it was lighter than a typical buttered muffin or biscuit but still kept this meal filling. 

The bacon and egg layers were quite thin, but that resulted in a less greasy sandwich, which I appreciated. Still, this sandwich was too salty for me. 

The addition of produce, like tomatoes, likely would’ve helped a lot, but as is, this sandwich was pretty mediocre.

The bacon was sparse and chewier than I expected, with a flavor that was vaguely smoky and salty. Plus I still wasn’t a fan of Subway’s egg-white patty. 

The idea of a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on flatbread seemed appealing, but Subway’s overly salty take fell flat for me.

4. Steak, Egg, and Cheese

For those looking for a more deluxe, savory option, the Steak, Egg, and Cheese Subway breakfast sub is the one for you.

The real protein champion of its peers, the Steak, Egg, and Cheese Subway breakfast sub (6 inches with the regular flatbread and no added veggies) will give you a powerful punch of 28 proteins to start your day.

In fact, most of the nutritional items in this Subway breakfast sub are higher in content! Your serving size is about 40 grams higher than the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sub and the Black Forest Ham, Egg, and Cheese sub, at approximately 226 grams on the serving.

So, what’ll it be for you off the Subway breakfast menu? Will you stick with the classic Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sub? Maybe you’re looking for a leaner, yet tasty option in the Black Forest Ham, Egg, and Cheese sub? Or maybe you are looking to load up on all those nutrients, especially protein, and will stick with the Steak, Egg, and Cheese sub. Perhaps you have less of an appetite and will always prefer the simple Egg and Cheese sub! No matter your choice, there is an option for you off the Subway breakfast menu.
