Review: Steak, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Flatbread from Subway
After a great experience with the Bacon, Egg White, and Cheese Breakfast Flatbread sandwich from Subway, I had high hopes for what was essentially the same sandwich, with shredded steak on top. Who doesn’t like a little extra meat with their breakfast? Not this girl. However, despite the fact that the new breakfast option is so similar to a legitimately tasty option, it is not nearly as good. I’d even go as far to say it was barely edible. Here’s my review of the Steak, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Flatbread from Subway.
The Steak, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Flatbread as described by Subway:
Start your day in a melt-a-licious way with the Steak, Bacon, Egg & Cheese for breakfast. This mouthwatering masterpiece is piled high with tender, juicy steak, crispy bacon, egg and melty cheese, all fresh toasted on flatbread. Get yours today.
What went wrong with this sandwich is very simple: the steak was so heavily salted that it threw off the balance of the entire thing. Sloppy construction and sub-par ingredients were also issues: the bacon was simultaneously soaked with grease and too brittle; part of the flatbread was stale and stiff… and even the weirdly washed-out tomato was not as flavorful as I hoped.
With no other options for breakfast, I dutifully ate half of the sandwich before trashing it. Based on this experience, I’d also steer clear of the other ‘Steak Melt’ options. Adding Subway’s shredded steak to an already-tasty breakfast option just results in adding a whole bunch of salt. If you’re still determined to try it, now is a good time — Subway is having a buy-one-get-one-free special on all 6-inch subs (including breakfast sandwiches) before 9 a.m. Unfortunately, I found that out when it was too late (damn you, lazy Subway employees!)
Pros: A pretty good value if you get the BOGO offer (during November).
Cons: So salty that it's practically inedible, bacon is not consistently good, sandwich is not even remotely healthy.
