PHOTO: Which fast food breakfast sandwich do you think reigns supreme?

Taco Bell dropped a breakfast bomb on the fast food world this week with its new morning menu announcement — until now, America’s A.M. fast food offerings have been pretty stable. Since the introduction of the Egg McMuffin in 1971, which has long been the top sandwich in the chain morning world, McDonald’s has gained 20 percent of its sales on breakfast alone. Dunkin’ Donuts, Subway and Starbucks caught up over the past few years – and now that Taco Bell’s shaking things up, we decided it was high time to see if the Egg McMuffin still reigns supreme. Check out the five unique offerings by each top breakfast chain and vote for your favorite below.
