This week, Subway celebrated their one-year anniversary of introducing breakfast foods to their menu. The celebration was held in New York City with a breakfast sandwich cook-off, judged by Subway's poster boy Jared Fogle and the chain's executive chef Chris Martone.

Celebrity chef Robert Irvine of Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible competed head-to-head with other members of the NYC community, including members of the Broadway cast of Rock Of Ages, to create the best Subway breakfast sandwich.

Irvine said he created a "low fat" breakfast flatbread sandwich of "cheese steak with egg whites, pepper jack cheese, chipotle sauce, and fresh vegetables."  However, his sandwich didn't hold up to the popular vote of Fogle's breakfast sandwich that day. "He took the contest by one point," Irvine admitted.

Subway also took the opportunity to announce a new sandwich topping available in chains nationwide as of today: avocado. This ingredient has been previously available in Californian restaurants, though Irvine says it's an "unusual" choice to use for breakfast.

The Subway Breakfast Challenge isn't over, either. Beginning May 31, breakfast sandwich aficionados can stop by Subway's Facebook page and create a virtual sandwich on the Flavorizer tab. Ten winners will be selected to receive free Subway breakfasts for an entire year.
