Did you know there are 44,830* Subway locations around the entire world? *According to Google when I searched: How many locations does Subway have, that is where I got the answer.
Subway used to be one of my favorite spots for sandwiches especially because it is very affordable and a healthier alternative meal. You could easily purchase a footlong sandwich for $5 to $7 bucks. A footlong could be eaten entirely by someone extremely hungry, shared among two people or one could eat half for lunch and the other half for dinner.
One of my favorite sandwiches I typically bought at Subway is called, Italian BMT. When you walk into a Subway you are asked what kind of bread you would like and the sandwich type you would like to order.
The available bread types:
- 9 Grain Wheat
- 9 Grain Honey Oat
- Parmesan Oregano
- Flat Bread
I would usually request a footlong with Italian or if I want to be healthy, I would get the 9 Grain Wheat. I always get my sandwich toasted before stuffing the sandwich with vegetables.
As for the Italian BMT, what’s inside?
- Genoa Salami
- Spicy Pepperoni
- Black Forest Ham
- Your choice of cheese: Provolone, American, Swiss. For the most part, I would request provolone cheese, sometimes American.
Optional: You could add avocado or bacon for extra if you would like.
Then, you have unlimited choice of your vegetables at no additional charge.
- Green Bell Peppers
- Red Onions
- Banana Peppers
- And so forth (depending on your location)
I usually just order my sandwich with lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, red onions, green bell peppers and regular mayonnaise. You have your choice of dressing/finishing touches at no additional charge also!
A tip back in the day was you could request the vegetables on the side to make a salad if you like the sandwich separate without the vegetables (which is how I prefer it) and so your sandwich would not be soggy, but now if you request this option, it will cost you extra.
Now, I prefer other sandwich spots – but the deals at Subway is still around and now they even have soups available!
