Canadian fast food breakfast sandwiches ranked from worst to best
In the old days, the best breakfast on the go you could hope for was a donut or a muffin. Today, Canadians are spoiled for choice when it comes to hot and tasty breakfast sandwiches.
We compare breakfast sandwich offerings at six different establishments nationwide to share once and for all with the Supreme Sandwich.
Our ranking takes into account menu options and customization, but it’s mostly a matter of taste.
Here are the best breakfast sandwiches in Canada ranked from worst to best.
Eggs cooked in the microwave just don’t taste the same as those fried on a grill. Plus, Subway Sandwich Bread is so iconically linked to their lettuce-filled lunchtime sandwiches that its appearance before noon is off-putting. Even if you go for the English muffin, the Subway cheese doesn’t have enough weight for the morning.
For these reasons, we rank Subway Breakfast Sandwiches last.
Considering that their breakfast sandwiches come out of the fridge before being toasted in the oven, they’re certainly not the most delicious option.
While their sausage, cheddar and egg sandwich will do in a pinch, and we applaud their vegetarian options – that’s not enough to overcome their less than fresh taste.
4. Tim Hortons
The famous Canadian coffee chain made waves when it announced it was taking a leaf from the McDonald’s book with new, freshly cracked eggs instead of the pre-cooked scrambled egg patty we’ve all become so used to.
We confirm this as a misstep. Often times, new Tim Hortons eggs are dry, overcooked, and not as nice as other fast food offerings.
3. Burger King
Probably the reason everyone would go to Burger King has to do with the tasty flame-grilled burgers. That strength doesn’t translate into breakfast time, but they still end up in the middle of our ranking.
Their options are plentiful, like the fully loaded Croissan’wich, but BK just doesn’t have the envy that other fast food places have.
Whether it’s on an English muffin or a sesame seed bun, A&W breakfast sandwiches are banging. They’re also some of the fattest and most salty, maybe that’s why we love them.
When you start your day with a sausage and an egg, you can’t really go wrong.
Your classic Egg McMuffin has been around for almost 50 years and its supremacy in the fast food breakfast market is well deserved.
The fresh egg puck, cheddar cheese, Canadian bacon and tangy English muffin make a great combination that is as nostalgic as it is tasty.
If you want, you can go fancy and opt for the McGriddle Sweet and Salty Sandwich or the satisfying Bagel BELT. But some things never go out of style.
