More and more fast-food restaurants are getting in the breakfast game. But heads up for a health warning - some choices can load you up with a day’s worth of fat and sodium!

Consumer Reports just tested fast-food egg sandwiches to see if you can really “Start your morning off right,” as Dunkin’ Donuts suggests, or “Wake up to deliciousness” at McDonald’s.

Can you make healthy choices without sacrificing taste?

Consumer Reports graded the nutrition of 106 egg sandwiches sold by fast-food restaurants like Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, Starbuck’s, and Subway.

So which morning pit stop will get you a tasty, nutritious egg sandwich?

Subway!

Its Egg White and Cheese on Flatbread is the only sandwich Consumer Reports rated very good for taste. Testers found the egg whites flavorful and the toasted flatbread tender.

And, Consumer Reports says, don’t let your egg sandwich sit for long because as the sandwich cools, so does the taste.
