Egg, cheese, and bacon or sausage: the classic breakfast sandwich.
It’s ubiquitous, yet the simple breakfast sandwich enjoys eternal popularity.
And with breakfast habits changing, breakfast sandwiches on-the-go have become all the more popular.
But of all the national chains, who makes the classic sandwich best?
I tried the egg, cheese, and meat iterations from three major fast-food chains — Burger King, McDonald’s, and Wendy’s — to see which one comes out on top.
The Big Three all serve some version of the sandwich; at first glance the only difference seems to be the bread.
Let’s dive into Burger King’s Supreme breakfast sandwich. It’s a breakfast limousine wreck of two eggs, two sausages, and two servings of bacon topped with cheese and served in a “toasted hoagie bun” which appears to be crushed in a car compactor before serving.

If this is a toasted hoagie bun, I don’t know what a hoagie is. It’s an elongated hamburger bun with all the sogginess and disappointment that buns are heir to — a bun to be wished away. The sickly yellow egg is gelatinous and tastes of complete nothingness. With fast-food sausage and bacon all in one sandwich, the entire thing comes off as incredibly salty. I didn’t finish this one.
