Sandwiches in Review: Subway’s Bacon Egg and Cheese with Avocado
June 28, 2011
Subway has recently announced a new initiative to offer avocado as an option for all sandwiches for a limited time. They mention a couple of sandwiches they feel it goes particularly well with, but I was in the mood for bacon and eggs, so I threw it on the Bacon, Egg and Cheese on Flatbread.
In addition to the bacon and eggs, I added some Monterey Cheddar cheese. The thing to remember about the avocado is that it isn’t guacamole. It’s thicker, without the spices and other ingredients. I thought it might be a lot to take, so I added some ranch dressing to cut it. That ended up being a good choice. I’m a big avocado fan, but it can be kind of thick and overpowering. Ideally, I’d like about a 6″ sub’s worth of avocado spread over a footlong, but I doubt they offer that. All in all, the avocado was an interesting addition, but I can’t see myself adding it again, at least not to this sandwich.
Adding avocado costs an extra 50 cents on a 6″ sub, and an extra $1 on footlongs. You definitely get your money’s worth, but unless it’s a sandwich that will probably benefit from a big injection of avocado (say, the Chipotle Chicken and Cheese) you may not want to risk it.
