Breakfast Sandwich Breakdown

Buying or heating up a breakfast sandwich may seem like a fab idea until you read this post. Most breakfast sandwiches pack a whole lot of calories in a small amount of food. Personally, I am going to stick to cooking my own eggs.

Want to see how many calories are in your morning sausage, egg and cheese? Then

hahaha @ a geek. I'm vegetarian now but I have to admit I used to love the Croissan'wich from Burger King when I was a kid. So greasy and cheesy! But now that I'm a grown-up I have a bowl of oatmeal crisp cereal when time permits.

I am soooo not a fan of the fast food breakfast sandwich...sometimes I make my own, with a plain egg on wheat toast. Kind of boring, but those sausage patties are so gross!

Mmmm. We don't have Dunkin Donuts here in CA (may be a blessing in disguise because I would be there every single freaking day they're so good) but I go get my brekfast fix every now and then with the Burger King crossiant with bacon instead of sausage. So yummy, but I feel so guilty afterwards. Oiye. I had an McMuffin once and immediately felt sick. McD's is not my friend.

I like to eat oatmeal with a. sunflower seeds & raisins or b. egg whites. I do this 6 days a week. On Saturday, I allow myself to eat whatever breakfast food I want. I usually eat bacon, egg, and cheese bisquit (sp).

Wow I love these yummy breakfast sandwiches. I don't eat them often and probably will eat them a lot less after looking at this list. I had NO idea that they were THAT bad. It makes me look at them a lot differently. lol

The girls and I at work are addicted to making our own breakfast sandwiches. We use 3 slices of ham, one slice of cheese, and an english muffin. This only has 235 calories, not too bad! Make sure to toast the muffin and then heat the whole sandwich up in the microwave for 20 secs. I always dip mine in spicy mustard! MMM MMM Good!

I make my kids egg sandwiches at home that they eat in the car on the way to school. No cheese or sausage though. Just whole wheat english muffins or lavash bread and egg beaters. Not all the cheese and cholesterol and they love them with an OJ.

Mmmmm bacon, egg, and cheese bagels with a diet coke from McD's after a night of hardcore drinking just hits the spot, ya know? I'm a smart girl though now and make my own, low fat, low cal version at home. I also like to splash soy sauce in my eggs so it becomes a very special order ;)

I cut my once in a life time breakfast sandwhich in half and throw the rest away as well. BUT today I had a Mc D's Egg McMufin and ate the entire meal because I hadn't eaten in 24 hours :( and was dying for a full tummy. But usually I don't eat the whole thing. I know how fattening they are. They don't even taste that good after eating half of it anyways.

anytime i order a breakfast sandwich from a fast food restaurant i almost always cut it in half and throw the other half away, saves your body from a lot of calories

Nothing at McD's is healthy, the the McGriddle is one of the worst offenders. Egg McMuffin isn't too bad, compared to their other options. Fast food makes me feel worse after eating it than being hungry does though...

I can't stand fastfood in general, so this doesn't bother me. I always make my breakfast and lunch from scratch.

I looked up my once-a-week treat of Mickey D's breakfast burritos: 300 calories, 16 g. fat, 830 mg. sodium, 26 carbs, 2 g sugar. The Fruit/Yogurt parfait looks like a better choice, but sadly the burrito will probably still win most of the time.

breakfast sandwiches and fast food in general gross me out...mostly i just have an egg white omlet with veggies for breakfast.

Yuck, I don't eat that stuff anymore. Instead I make my own using a whole wheat bagel, egg beaters, fat free cheese, and soy sausage. It's just as good and a lot healthier :)
