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.

Cheese English Muffin Sandwich

Burger King Sausage, Egg and
Cheese Muffin Sandwich

NUTRITION TOTALS*
Calories 400

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.
