Some people will say Burger King is stretching it with their new breakfast sandwich, and they’d be right. The fast food chain is going to great lengths to pull in the morning crowd with the introduction of the Supreme Breakfast Sandwich.

But the Supreme Breakfast Sandwich really isn’t new, it’s just a reincarnation of the chain’s Enormous Omelet Sandwich – which was widely criticized in the media during its original release in 2005 due to the sandwich’s high caloric, salt and fat content. Despite the criticism, by all accounts it sold well.

The Supreme Breakfast Sandwich features two fluffy eggs, two sizzling sausage patties, and crispy bacon topped with two slices of melted American cheese, all piled high on a warm toasted hoagie bun.

On the nutritional front, the Supreme Breakfast Sandwich comes packed with 880 calories, 2170 milligrams of sodium and 375 milligrams of cholesterol.

In New York City, an ordinance requires larger chain restaurants to place a warning icon next to menu items that contain more than 2,300 milligrams of salt. On its own, the Supreme Breakfast Sandwich’s salt content comes in only slightly under that warning threshold, as part of a meal, well that’s a different story.
