A classic subway staple, this Copycat Subway BMT Sandwich recipe recreates a delicious crowd favorite. Sandwiches are great ideas for lunch even if it’s typically known for being an afternoon snack. The best part when making sandwiches is the freedom to throw in any type of fillings you want. Stack layer upon layer of meats, vegetables, and sauces, eventually creating a tower! Jokes aside, we’ll be recreating a sandwich inspired by a famous sandwich franchise.

Subway is popular for its scrumptious sandwiches and mouthwatering cookies like its Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. They’re dedicated to serving nutritious food with complete transparency of what’s on their menu. Like them, we want to help you recreate their classic sandwich. For this recipe, we’ll be focusing on making an easy and effortless delicious subway BMT.

BMT Sandwich

While the Subway BMT is better known as ‘Biggest, Meatiest, Tastiest’ now, interestingly, this Italian sub was originally named after a train system called the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit. The original subway BMT consists of Black Forest ham, spicy pepperoni, Genoa salami, and your veggies of choice. For this sandwich recipe, we’ve handpicked the vegetables for you to create the perfect combination of flavors.

Onions are an aromatic vegetable that packs a sweet yet spicy taste. The lettuce, though mild in flavor, has crisp frills that help trap the sauce. Roasted Jalapeno is slightly smokey but adds heat that goes great with the sandwich. A sweet and flavorful touch from the tomato helps offset the spiciness in the sandwich. Slices of pepperoni, salami, and ham are the meaty elements of the BMT. Top it off with some mayonnaise and sandwich spread for a slight tang!

This recipe can be served warm after being baked in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or you plate a mouth-watering cold sandwich to retain the fresh flavors. There are different possibilities of fillings for this sandwich. You can throw in some chicken or pickles too but we want to stick with the authenticity of a BMT sandwich.

Sandwich Bread Recipe

Now, let’s talk about bread. Subway uses hoagie bread and so does this recipe. However, if you don’t have one on-hand, ciabatta bread also makes a great alternative. We also have a Homemade Subway Bread recipe if you plan to serve freshly-baked slices of bread. For a healthier meal, our Low-Calorie Italian Bread offers a great soy-based, corn-meal packed solution. Together with our BMT sandwich recipe, you won’t have to go out of your way and, instead, be feasting at home with a delicious copycat recipe.

Pair this subway BMT sandwich with our Mango Apricot Strawberry Smoothie for a cool and refreshing drink. Both are tasty recipes you can make especially when summer rolls around. So, let’s get right to the kitchen and make yourself the best subway sandwich.

Commonly Asked Questions

I don’t have hoagie bread. What else can I use for this sandwich recipe?

If you plan to go the long subway sandwich route, you can always use ciabatta bread or a baguette. Slice through its entire length for bigger servings or slice them individually if you plan to only have one or two sandwiches. But if you choose to use any other types of bread you might end up with something very far from a Subway sandwich.

How can I make this a vegetarian-friendly BMT sandwich?

This subway sandwich can be entirely vegetarian friendly by omitting the meat. Though, if you still want a meaty mouthfeel in your BMT sandwich, you can use tofu or tempeh, vegan ham, beans or legumes, and even mushrooms.
