Review: Subway - Egg Muffin Melt - Double Bacon

Subway's Egg Muffin Melt top view
A part of Subway's new breakfast menu, the Egg Muffin Melt is available with either a plain egg omelet or an egg white omelet (a western omelet is also available) and your choice of meats (bacon, sausage, Black Forest ham, steak, or no meat).

Other than egg and meat, you get a slice of white American cheese and your choice of a limited breakfast selection of veggies and condiments on a light wheat English muffin.  The Egg Muffin Melt costs $2 or $2.50 to breakfast combo (yes, I am using two nouns as a verb) it with a 16-ounce Seattle's Best brewed coffee.

The English muffin was very soft and would have benefited from spending more time in Subway's toaster oven.  The muffin was warmed enough to melt the cheese but the muffin itself was not really toasted at all.

I got two slices of egg whites (they quarter an egg white omelet) and they were surprising nice and fluffy for pre-made egg whites.

The Egg Muffin Melt itself tasted fairly healthy despite the paper-thin ready-to-eat strips of bacon.  The choices of veggies in the morning were shredded iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, bell peppers, and red onions.  I chose the bell peppers and onions but I wish they would have given me more as I only got a few measly strands of each (I got a third strand of bell pepper because i asked for more).

Ham or sausage might be a better choice for more even distribution of meat. Some baconless bites were very bland but it was never too salty.

Overall, it was just okay for me.  Even with the bacon, it felt like I was eating somewhat healthy but I could make something much better at home.  Still, it's a good, possibly healthy (depending on how you build it), option for those, on their way to work, who want something more substantial than oatmeal or cereal for breakfast.  I do think that toasting the muffin to crispiness would go a long way to creating a more enjoyable eating experience.

  1. Looks like they don't load the muffin with vegetables like they do for their sandwich but it might end up overpowering the taste of the egg or meat with too much onions and bell pepper

  2. But I want more veggies! This is my semi-healthy breakfast!

  3. Combo is a verb, short for combination (noun) and combine (verb).

  4. I have been to two separate Subway rrestaurants that did not want to honor thye deal. each one felt the deal was only for egg and cheese even though the picture clearly showed meat on the egg muffin melt. Disappointing
