Review: Subway - Ham and Jack Slider

Subway's Ham and Jack Slider features Black forest ham and pepper jack on a telera slider roll.

It cost me $1.89 for one.

Unlike Subway's other sandwiches, you don't get to pick any veggies for the new sliders. You can choose your cheese and sauce and that's it.

The telera slider roll was more like a mini ciabatta. It had more uneven large air pockets and a fair amount of chew to it (rather than the smaller bubbles and denser crumb of a traditional telera). Toasting gave it a nice, thin crispy shell on the outside but left the inside of each half largely untouched.

I've never gotten just plain ham and cheese on a sub from Subway and was dismayed to find that the ham lacked a lot of flavor. While the texture was fine, I was hard pressed to find any pork or meaty notes to it or any seasonings beyond salt (and it wasn't all that salty either). The cheese fared better with a nice gooey melt and mild creaminess but not more than the barest whisper of heat.

Overall, while the ciabatta-like roll of Subway's Ham and Jack Slider was nice enough, the ham and cheese combination was too plain to be enjoyable. The lack of veggies is a drawback for me and Arby's similarly priced sliders are both meatier and more flavorful.
