If you watch TV or follow food news, you may have heard that Subway is trying to break into the fast food breakfast scene. Earlier this week, they offered up free English muffin melts as a promotion. I stopped in at one that was located in a gas station before work. I had to fill up…
Subway’s approach to breakfast is the same as lunch – Eat fresh and eat healthy.
Their muffin melts use light-wheat English muffins which aren’t bad but like other wheat breads, a little dry and rough. Subway offers several different meat options – ham, bacon, sausage – or you can just do a plain egg melt. Egg whites can be substituted for no extra cost which is something I don’t think other fast food chains offers and a definite appeal to those trying to be more health conscious.
Like their subs, you can add on toppings and dressings and specify the type of cheese you want, if any. And if you don’t feel like a muffin, you can get a 6″ or flatbread (different cost).
I added tomato to my ham, cheese and egg white melt. I think the sandwich would have benefited from some sort of sauce to balance the dryness of the English muffin. It didn’t fill me up but paired with fruit or yogurt, I think I would have had a decent, well-proportioned and balanced breakfast.
The muffin melts range from $2-3 and at a 160-170 cals and 3.5-4g of fat, are a heck of a lot healthier for you.
