If you're stuck in a rut and want to level up your sandwich routine, there are some flavor combos at Subway that I bet you haven't tried.  They'll even add "wings" for ya.

I take my girls to Subway regularly because they all want slightly different variations at every meal, and Subway helps us knock out at least one where everybody's happy.  I always try to nudge these three tweens to try something new, but they won't have it.  They are committed to ham in a pretty non-adventurous way, but as long as it makes them happy I'm happy.  They all start with ham and white cheese, and one of the girls adds black olives and pepperoncini, another adds mustard, and the third just wants plain ham and cheese, although she's the lone child that gets it toasted.

There are about 340,000 possible combinations of meat, cheese, and vegetables at Subway, and if your family is like mine, you've tried about 5 of them.  It's high time to venture out.

There's no way all of the possible combinations will fit into the standard menu board, so the Subway has a sort of secret menu that has come from watching what people order and wondering if the creations might catch on.

Flavor Combinations at Subway That You Should Totally Try

Sweet and Sour Chicken Sub
You can create this by ordering a chicken sub and combining it with red wine vinaigrette and sweet onion sauce and adding tomatoes, banana peppers, and red onions.

Pizza Sub
This is a pepperoni sub with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni filling, and you can add any vegetables you like.  Not every location will have the pepperoni filling since it's on the secret menu, but it's worth a try.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sub
This is a grilled chicken sub mixed with ham, Swiss cheese, spinach, and tomato, and it's topped with sweet honey mustard.

Eggs Florentine Flatbread
The filling is a combo of egg whites, banana pepper, red onion, black olives, and spinach and it's topped with Italian dressing. It's not calorie-free, but it might be an option that's healthier than some.

Oh, and if you're in the mood for an extra frill you can ask the sandwich maker to add a wing effect, and instead of tucking the meat into the bread, they'll let the slices hang over the edge.  Tucked in might be less messy, but wings are more fun.

If I can get the kids to try these combinations I bet they'll like them, and I'm also quite certain they'll go right back to the boring and beloved ham creations on Italian Herb and Cheese bread that they ask for at least once a week.

If you have other awesome combo ideas, let me know.  I'll try them!
