How To Reheat A Subway Sandwich

While you can eat your Subway sandwich cold, there is no denying that a warm Subway sandwich is top-tier.

There is something about heating the sandwich up that enhances the flavor, makes it a lot tastier, and also makes it feel more like a meal rather than a snack.

That is why we will always choose to reheat a Subway sandwich.

There are lots of different methods you can use to reheat your Subway sandwich, but below we have listed 3 of the easiest options. So without further ado, let’s dive right in!

In The Oven

Our personal favorite when it comes to reheating a Subway sandwich is using the oven.

This is the best way to get the crunch that you get from a Subway sandwich in the store, and also to avoid soggy bread.

To reheat your Subway sandwich in the oven, simply begin by pre-warming your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

As tedious as pre-warming can be, it really is essential for achieving a delicious re-heated Subway sandwich.

Once your oven has warmed up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, take the wrapping off of your sandwich and place the sandwich directly onto the rack of the oven.

Do not use a baking sheet as this will not achieve the desired effect.

Leave your Subway sandwich in the oven for around 10 minutes. After this time has passed, check your sandwich to ensure that it has warmed through.

Once you have confirmed that it has been thoroughly reheated, carefully remove your Subway sandwich from the oven. Leave it to cool for around 2 minutes, then tuck in and enjoy!

In The Toaster Oven

If you have a toaster oven at home then this is another great way to achieve a delicious finish on your reheated Subway sandwich.

Reheating your Subway sandwich in the toaster oven is really simple. Begin by setting your toaster oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit in the warm setting.

Then place your Subway sandwich directly on the tray of the oven.

Leave your sandwich for around 5 to 10 minutes to give it time to heat through. Check on it regularly to ensure that it does not overheat during this time.

Once you are happy remove your Subway sandwich from the toaster oven and leave it to cool for a couple of minutes. Then enjoy!

The toaster oven method is an excellent way to reheat your Subway sandwich if you want a finish that is very similar to a Subway finish but don’t want to have to wait too long.

The end result of using this method is very similar to the result of using an oven, it simply takes less time as your Toaster oven will heat up much quicker than your oven at home.

In The Microwave

Finally, if you really are short on time, then you can use a microwave to reheat your Subway. But before using this method remember that the microwave can make bread go soggy.

To use this method, begin by placing your Subway on a microwave-safe dish or a paper towel. Then place it in the microwave and heat it on high for 30 seconds.

If your sandwich hasn’t heated through in this time, continue to warm it up in 30-second increments, checking the temperature each time the microwave dings.

Once your sandwich has heated through, tuck in and enjoy! Be careful not to reheat as this can damage the quality of your sandwich.


In short, there are lots of different ways that you can use to easily reheat your Subway sandwich.

Our personal favorite is in the oven as you get a much crunchier finish using this method. However, if you are short on time, the microwave is always a good option.
