What Exactly Is Subway's Deconstructed Breakfast Taco?

Subway is known for its hearty healthy and affordable sandwiches. Like many other fast food chains, Subway allows customers to fully customize their sandwiches, salads, or wraps with an array of sliced deli meats, veggies, sauces, and bread. Unlike some other large chains, it's rare to find a Subway location that can satisfy your hunger needs at all hours of the night. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Subway locations reduced their hours, but as of 2022, Subway wants locations to be open at least 91 hours per week. Whether or not your nearest Subway has extended hours, you can bank on being able to order breakfast, no matter the time.

According to Insider, the sandwich chain has been offering breakfast since 2010 with a variety of breakfast items. The breakfast sandwiches are served on the chain's flatbread and topped with a choice of protein, egg, or vegetables. Even though some people say to avoid the breakfast menu, its customizable options and the fact that it's available all day make it an appealing choice (via Sara's Veggie Kitchen). If you don't want to order one of the set breakfast menu items, there's a simple hack to create a completely customizable off-menu item.

Tacos at a sandwich shop?

According to Restaurant Clicks, it's possible to order a deconstructed breakfast taco at the sandwich chain. While tacos are definitely not on the menu, you can use this hack to obtain a "breakfast taco sandwich." To order the taco sandwich, ask for a grilled steak flatbread with egg whites, guacamole, spinach, red onions, and sliced tomatoes. Once the sandwich is compiled, ask for it to be toasted and slathered with the chain's chipotle sauce. The sandwich is full of protein, veggies, and tasty sauce, which is the ultimate way to start (or end) your day. One of the best parts about Subway is the endless customization. The breakfast taco sandwich can be made vegetarian by omitting the steak or subbing in one of the many kinds of cheese.

The breakfast taco sandwich hybrid is not technically on the menu, but it joins the ranks of other Subway secret menu items. If you're interested in ordering some secret on the menu options, consider ordering something from the Vault. According to Thrillist, the Vault is Subway's exclusive menu only available online and in the app. Some of the sandwiches are even made in partnership with famous athletes like Steph Curry and Simone Biles.
