Fast Food Breakfast Sandwiches: Not all fast food breakfasts are created equal. See which sandwich’s nutrition reigns supreme for powering you through the day.

Subway Western Egg, Ham and
Cheese English Muffin Sandwich

NUTRITION TOTALS*
Calories 180
Protein 15g
Carbohydrates 19g
Fat 7g

 

Burger King Sausage, Egg and
Cheese Muffin Sandwich

NUTRITION TOTALS*
Calories 400
Protein 17g
Carbohydrates 24g
Fat 26g

 

Verdict: Subway’s quick morning option provides the combination of protein and carbs needed to fuel your body throughout the day, while limiting fat and empty calories.

BK’s high fat count comes from the sausage patty. Reduce 14 grams of fat by substituting ham, a much healthier option.
