First there was the KFC "Double Down" sandwich which made everyone slightly squeamish while simultaneously arousing the junk food palate's curiosity...

Then Friendly's upped the ante with their horrendously fat-tastic Grilled Cheese Burger Melt, weighing in at an astounding 1,500 calories.  (To be fair, it does come topped with health-ilicious lettuce and tomato...)

But never one to be outdone, Denny's is finally entering the market of ridiculous foods today with their Fried Cheese Melt--a sandwich made with "four fried mozzarella sticks and melted American cheese grilled between two slices of sourdough bread"--priced at a consumer-friendly $4.

The Eater ranks this one on it's novelty sandwich meter:
On a scale of one to ten, one being a plain slice of white bread and ten being a chocolate-dipped bacon-wrapped Double Down on a stick, Denny's Fried Cheese Melt is a 6.
