    I don't think that Subway shops have grills.  That means that the "omelets" will be factory-made, like the eggs in the Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwiches.  No doubt the "steak" and the bacon are the same factory-cooked items used in the subs.  The "Western Egg and Cheese" sandwich will probably have raw onions and peppers (again, from the sub supplies) dropped on top of the rubbery, factory-made "omelet".
     
    I'd have to be pretty hungry!

     Subway serving breakfast is just plain scary.

    you're right Don, factory made microwaved crap.
    but there are idiots that will eat it & love it.
    why only egg whites? the yolk adds the taste.

    I looked at the Subway website. The egg white thing is just one version. They also have whole egg versions. At least, that's what they say.
     
    I guess the egg white version is connected to their low-cal, low-fat thing.

    We were just talking about doing it someday this week out of curiosity.  I figure it's like when McDonald's first started serving breakfast...everybody thought that was weird, too.

    IMO, as fast food breakfasts go, Jack in the Box does the best job and you can get their Breakfasts 24/7. Wendy's new Applewood Bacon meals are pretty good also.

    they're using Thomas' brand muffins and bagels. Good idea on the English muffins, not so much on the bagels. I like Thomas' English Muffins, but the bagels are not good.

    It's not a question of being man enough, it's a question of getting up early enough to go there.  I haven't been up before the crack of noon all week, and they don't start serving breakfast at 3-4am when I'm heading to bed.

    Chet, I think many of us have already tried breakfast items sold as a sideline by fast food joints, cafes in health clubs, airports lounges, and other places that do not have full-blown fryers and grills. The food arrives at the establishment pre-cooked and frozen. So, I really have no interest to seek one of their new sandwiches out.
     
    About 20 years ago, I came across a Subway in Manhattan that was offering a 'breakfast special' platter of scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, and coffee for about the same price as the places that had real grills (diners and coffee shops.) The eggs were fresh eggs but microwaved. The bacon was precooked microwave bacon. The white bread toast was one of the retail brands of white bread rather than that of a specialty baker of restaurant breads. Everything was served on two thin plastic plates (because one plate was not large enough to hold everything) with plastic cutlery; the coffee in a paper cup. The other places served food on china, with metal utensils, with a china coffee cup. Subway was selling breakfast without having to buy a grill with its city permits and fire suppression system and a dishwasher. Yum.
     
    About the only advantge I see about this Subway offering is that they will dress the breakfast sandwich with any of their stock cheeses, weeds, vegetables, and condiments from the sandwich bar.

    Let's review - all the people that have read and posted to this thread have either not had a new Subway breakfast or have not had the stones to tell us about it.

    This gives me hope that perhaps we're making better choices.

    Actually Subway has has breakfast sandwiches available for quite awhile, but not at all locations. I think the current rollout is for all locations and this will be the first time they offer the English muffin in addition to sub rolls and wraps.

    I tried one yesterday - a 6" wheat sub roll with the double bacon egg and cheese. I had them add peppers and mayo. It was actually quite tasty for a FF sandwich...and unbelievably only $2.50 for the sub and a coffee.

    The breakfast sandwiches have been kicking about the UK for a few years now, had one a while back, sausage, egg and cheese on the Italian roll, it was cheap yes but I found it lukewarm and rubbery.

    I had Subway's $2.50 breakfast combo today. I didn't know they try to upsell you for "double egg", 50 cents extra. I ordered the Double Bacon, Egg and Cheese combo on the light English muffin from the surly counterman who spoke very poor English. "Double egg", he asks me. I look back up on the menu and repeat, "Double Bacon, Egg and Cheese on English Muffin". He asked if I wanted white egg or yellow egg. Yellow egg, I told him. He pulls out this 6 or 7 inch diameter "omelet" from a covered container in the fridge. He cuts it in 4 pieces, like one would cut a 6" personal pizza in 4 pieces. He put on two strips of microwave bacon and two half-slices of American cheese (total) on the both sides of the muffin. This muffin is not a retail Thomas muffin (could be contract manufactured by just about anybody). The entire sandwich was assembed on a piece of white deli paper, and then placed in the oven Subway uses. A 16 ounce of Seattle's Best coffee comes with the combo, and the total was now $3.00 plus sales tax.
    This is when I realized he upsold me.

    The by-now-rumpled piece of deli paper with the sandwich on it was placed in a basket for me. The muffin came out steamed. The eggs were flavorless and the bacon from the sandwich bar was not very warm. The coffee was excellent, however. A problem was that some of the 4 wedges of "omelet" kept falling out of the sandwich. I don't know if the microwaved eggs were made in the shop earlier or in a factory, but it appread to be made of pasteurized scrambled eggs.

    With plenty of other food shops in the area, I was the only one who came in for breakfast in a 40-minute period. Two other partons both ordered lunch-type sandwiches to go. However, I did see people pass the shop eating breakfast sandwiches they bought in one of those other food shops.

    Here, the $2.50 combo price (noted as limited time only) only applies to the English muffin sandwich. They had higher a la carte prices listed for the sub and flatbread sandwiches. The price is pretty cheap, but then again you are only getting reheated food.

    I was going to ask why he quartered the "omelet", but then I noticed that you wrote that it was 6+ inches in diameter.  Can you figure out why they don't get them the same diameter as the muffin?

    I think they use the same "omelets" to make sub bread and flatbread sandwiches, too. They could have sized it to fit the 6" sub bread.

    I had one of these sandwiches.  Had a coupon for a "Breakfast/Lunch Combo" breakfast sandwich and a lunch sandwich for 5 bucks.  

    Breakfast sandwich was terrible.  It was mostly a non flavor.  Just some "egg product" on a muffin with rubbery microwave bacon.  Yuck.

    They did have a seafood sub some years ago - a coworker of mine brought one back for lunch almost every Friday.  I don't know what kind of seafood was in it but it looked to me like tuna and that fake crabmeat stuff.

    My wife loved Subways seafood sub. It was just fake crabmeat, but she's allergic to shellfish so it did the job for her. She's been upset for a long time that its still not on the menu.

    Subway still sells the seafood sub, at least around here.  It's on their premium menu, but they still have it.

    Edit: Interesting.  It doesn't show on their website.  But I just had one about a month ago.  It's got a bunch of fake "seafood" on it...all whitefish or pollock, I'm sure.  But the ones in Grand Rapids, MI still serve it.  I'm guessing it's a franchise thing?

    Found it!  It's listed in their ingrediente guide as "Seafood Sensation"...which is not what it's called at the Subway by my house.

    SEAFOOD SENSATION Alaskan Pollock, water, Pacific Whiting, cornstarch, potato starch, wheat starch, sugar, sorbitol, contains 2% or less of the following: Snow crabmeat, natural and artificial flavors, refined fish oil, egg whites, carrageenan, spices (allspice, bay, black pepper, cardamon, cassia, celery, clove, ginger, mace, nutmeg, red pepper), salt, modified potato starch, calcium carbonate, sodium tripolyphosphate, tetrasodium phosphate, citric acid, color (titanium dioxide, carmine, paprika oleoresin and caramel Color). Subway® regular mayonnaise. Contains egg, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat.

    This is the sort of factory pre-cooked egg product that they use:

    The description on the website sounds real yummy! 

    I always want my eggs to be homogenized with Xanthan Gum in them. NOT!

    And I am sure I can trust all the help at all of the Subways (or any other place that uses them) to throw in the garbage any of these "egg patties" if they have been stored frozen more than 6 months since manufacture or stored more than 3 days since thawing. (Just like I trust all those Nigerians who keep wanting to give me money!)
