We Tried 14 Fast Food Breakfast Sandwiches. Here's The Best One.

as much as we love fast food breakfast sandwiches it's true that not all are created equally here's your guide to the best and worst breakfast sandwich options at some of your favorite fast food spots sonic drive-in may not be the first spot that comes to mind when you're

looking for a fast food breakfast but it does offer a surprising number of options if you want a breakfast sandwich though you'll have to opt for the breakfast toaster as it's the only sandwich on the breakfast menu it's made with eggs cheese and your meat of choice place

between two thick slabs of texas toast it doesn't sound too bad but the issue is more in the execution than in the concept with the fattiness from the egg cheese and meat the extra fat from the texas toast can be overkill add to the fact that it can

sometimes feel like you're biting into more bread than protein and it's a breakfast that can often fall flat the saving grace you can order your breakfast toaster with a side of tater tots which is essential if you're still determined to eat at a sonic for breakfast it's no

secret that subway doesn't offer the best breakfast around it did get a late start in the game and while the restaurant saw some success at first it didn't last long in 2018 subway stopped requiring its franchisees to open at 7 am to serve breakfast menu items though some

stores have continued their early morning sales with fewer options one of the ones that's left the bacon egg and cheese flatbread sure the bacon egg and cheese are all fine but few fast food customers are going to wake up in the morning craving a flatbread over a biscuit

or wrap like many other restaurants offer the floppy texture of the sandwich just doesn't make the cut for many but one thing that subway breakfast does offer that other spots don't is the ability to customize your order while most other fast food breakfast sandwiches are explicitly vegetable free

you can easily add veggies to your morning time subway order when you're trying to eat healthy fast food for breakfast is clearly not the way to go but everyone ends up in a rush sometimes and it can be easy to just grab something on the go but one

option we just can't get behind the reduced fat bacon and cage-free egg white sandwich from starbucks at 230 calories it's not gonna ruin your diet but it might just ruin your morning the dry slightly chewy english muffin is a far cry from the crisp bread you'd expect and

while the egg cheese and bacon may not be all that bad they don't lend heaps of flavor to the sandwich its low calorie count makes it a winning choice for nutrition experts but let's be honest it seriously falls short when it comes to taste our advice check out

one of the other breakfast items on the menu or skip the starbucks breakfast completely jack in the box may not come in near the top of the list but one thing is for sure we love the fact that you can grab breakfast here all day long it was

one of the first to offer a breakfast sandwich in 1969 and it served all day breakfast ever since luckily there are tons of breakfast options here so there's plenty to choose from but one that you may want to skip on is the breakfast jack while you'll find the

other breakfast menu offerings on croissants and biscuits customers are only going to get a basic sandwich bun on a breakfast jack a bun might be fine for midday but something more buttery and substantial would definitely be an improvement for this sandwich the ham egg and slice of american

cheese just aren't that substantial compared to other items on the menu and overall offer a less than exciting breakfast experience there's no such thing as breakfast you're right uh i'm jack i just put these wings on and broke it through your window to leave some money under your

pillow as one of the country's fast food giants it's no surprise that wendy started offering breakfast in 1985 but after just nine months the company decided to pull the menu as it wasn't finding widespread success fast forward to 2020 and the popular chain released a brand new breakfast

menu perhaps the most anticipated item on the new menu is the breakfast baconator let's get real is there a part of us that wants to dig into one of these bad boys every morning yes and that's understandable once you see this monster of a sandwich before your eyes

sausage cheese bacon egg more cheese more bacon and cheese sauce to top it all off it seems like a win it's indulgent and dare we say appealing but this is hardly the first thing you'd want to eat in the morning unless you're recovering from an especially brutal hangover

a normal afternoon baconator may just be as unremorsefully unhealthy as the breakfast version but somehow it just feels a little less sinful than deciding this is how you're going to start off your day carl's jr isn't really known for being the healthiest fast food joint on the block

and that leads us to the carl's jr monster biscuit and the decidedly mixed reviews from those who decide to order it get this it's a buttery biscuit packed with both bacon and a sausage patty then add in not one but two eggs finally finish it off with two

types of cheese american and swiss it's over the top and it's likely to turn many people's stomachs but those who are willing to sacrifice their health often give it good reviews so bottom line it's up to you to decide if it's worth the inevitable price you'll pay most

people don't go to starbucks for the food sure they serve food but the coffee is the real star of the show and considering many of the drinks have as many calories as a full meal it's probably for the best that you don't always order an accompanying sandwich or

wrap but sometimes you just need to fill the void in your stomach before you get to work you can't be bothered to make another stop on your way to the office the bacon gouda and egg sandwich should by all counts be delicious but for all its potential it

falls short the bacon is decidedly not crunchy the ciabatta is dry and you'd think starbucks would at least have fresh eggs on its sandwiches this breakfast sandwich isn't particularly good but if you're going to go there for the coffee anyway and your stomach is already grumbling it can't

hurt to try what did i always tell you breakfast is a big boy's most important meal of the day now start on these cocoa puffs and i'll scramble you some eggs the story of burger king's breakfast menu is different than that of spots like mcdonald's while mickey d's

could easily use grills for its breakfast offerings burger king prided itself on its flame grilled burgers that method wasn't exactly conducive to easily offering breakfast items so the fast food chain didn't start rolling out its breakfast menu until the 80s now there's no denying that burger king is

an ideal place to stop if you're ultra hungry and the breakfast there isn't any exception perhaps the best known breakfast sandwich option at the chain is the sausage egg and cheese chris sandwich lots of places use croissants in lieu of biscuits or bagels but burger king does an

especially good job of it while we admit the folded egg is a bit sketchy the sandwich as a whole comes together perfectly the sausage is usually crispy and the cheese holds the other ingredients together while adding just a touch of creamy texture it's perfect for on-the-go eating because

let's face it sometimes we just want to get away from the inevitable breakfast chaos of home put beans in his cage now if anyone has a leg up in the breakfast game it's duncan its signature product is a breakfast food which means that this company has to work

even harder to ensure that its other breakfast items are just as good as its donuts luckily duncan has adopted a new trend and the restaurant chain has finally come through for its loyal veggie customers offering a vegetarian option for breakfast the beyond sausage sandwich uses the popular beyond

sausage a patty that's known for its similarity to real meat and taste texture and appearance in addition to the plant-based patty you'll also find an egg and cheese squished between two buns you shouldn't expect the meat to taste exactly like sausage but it's certainly an appetizing option for

those who want to reduce their meat intake even avowed meat eaters won't likely miss the normal meat flavor of duncan's other offerings white castle gets a lot of hate but like it or not this restaurant was actually america's first fast food chain and what you may not know

about white castle is the fact that its breakfast is actually pretty good it definitely takes the cake when it comes to creativity after all where else can you find a belgian waffle slider if you love tiny adorable food like we do then the size of these sliders is

enough to get you interested but the salty sweet combination is what really knocks it out of the park pair the sweet waffle bun with sausage or bacon a fresh egg and your choice of cheese since they're so small you can order several of these at once for a

unique fast food breakfast experience perhaps the most iconic fast food breakfast sandwich ever the mcdonald's egg mcmuffin is steeped in legend it's largely responsible for changing how people eat breakfast suddenly convenience took precedent as people's lives got busier and their jobs got more important eating on the go

even for breakfast was the new big thing but even divorced from its storied past the egg mcmuffin is still a delicious breakfast favorite that consumers flock to as the most recognizable item on the breakfast menu it's still hard to pass up on that nostalgic thin slice of ham

bouncy egg and american cheese slice are there better items on the mcdonald's breakfast menu technically yes but will any of those options trigger the nostalgia you'd get from an old-fashioned mcmuffin of course not of all the spots that have breakfast menu items ones full of chicken should be

celebrated one of those spots that often gets overlooked is whataburger one part of whataburger's breakfast we absolutely adore is the fact that restaurants sell these items from 11 pm to 11am so whether you're a night owl or an early riser this chain's got you covered there are plenty

of breakfast sandwiches to try but the unexpected star of the show is the honey butter chicken biscuit this isn't your average chicken biscuit the tender chicken strip lovingly rests on its bed of buttermilk biscuit as it's smothered in sweet fatty honey butter it can be on the messy

side but this perfect marriage of flavors is worth the sticky hands you'll have luckily for all those who can't get enough of the delicious chicken at chick-fil-a a specific breakfast item is one of the most recognizable fast food breakfast sandwiches around the chick-fil-a chicken biscuit there's the classic

the spicy and the chicken minis all of which are popular options every biscuit you order at chick-fil-a is actually hand-made which gives them that rustic quality that makes it feel like grandma baked them and if you ever meet someone who works at chick-fil-a making biscuits you should thank

them for all their hard work the biscuits take longer to make than any other item on the breakfast menu after the staff gets done hand rolling the dough they then butter the biscuits right before they go into the oven giving them that rich flavor you've grown to love

add some of the delicious never frozen chicken on top of the already top-notch biscuit and it's no wonder customers crave this sandwich every morning coming in at the top spot is the mcdonald's sausage egg and cheese mcgriddle the famous mcgriddle came out back in 2003 before the sweet

and salty craze kicked in mcgriddles come with different fillings but the sausage egg and cheese is definitely the best it combines a moist sausage patty yellow cheese and perfectly cooked egg and then smashes it all together between two pancakes but the best part of this sandwich the syrup

is actually inside the pancakes in the form of little crystals that melt at the perfect temperature the sandwich was made like this so people could eat with one hand without worrying about dipping the sandwich into syrup when they were on the go total win right if you're looking

for an entire breakfast you can eat in one hand this breakfast sandwich is clearly the way to go check out one of our newest videos right here plus even more mashed videos about your favorite fast food are coming soon subscribe to our youtube channel and hit the bell
