You know that a BLT sandwich gets its name due to having bacon, lettuce, and tomato in it. So, then, what is Subway’s Italian B.M.T. sandwich? Is it a bacon, mayonnaise, and tomato sandwich? Is it a bacon, mango, and tomato sandwich? No, the real answer is actually pretty complicated and has almost nothing to do with the sandwich’s ingredients. Originally, Subway’s B.M.T. sandwich was named after a part of the subway system in New York City. However, the official explanation Subway gives these days is that B.M.T. stands for “biggest, meatiest, tastiest.”
That may be a weird retrofit of the original sandwich name, but it turns out that Subway isn’t lying. This sandwich is legitimately big, meaty, and tasty. The Italian B.M.T. sandwich features black forest ham, spicy pepperoni, and Genoa salami as its meats. While the Cold Cut Combo is monotonous despite having three types of meat, this sandwich is vibrant from the first bite. You can clearly taste the ham, pepperoni, and salami and there are enough flavors at play to keep your taste buds fully entertained for the duration of your meal.
