    The Friendly's Ultimate Grilled Cheese Burger Melt

    The Friendly's chain is the latest entrant into the wretched-excess fast-food sweepstakes, having introduced its Ultimate Grilled Cheese Burger Melt, a 1,500 calorie, 97-fat-gram obscenity that sandwiches a thick burger between two (yes, two) grilled-cheese sandwiches. Oh, plus some thousand-island dressing, and in a gentle nod to the vegetable kingdom, onions and mushrooms.

    Would any of you be willing to try this heart attack on a plate with a side of fries?

    Open Wide!

    Not for me. I just don't eat fast food that much and then it's more likely to going to be Arby's. Fast food is entrenched in today's diet. I can remember when I did take my kids to MickeyD's they considered it a real treat. They're not addicted to the stuff either.

    Okay, that's excessive. But do you like grilled cheeseburgers with just one slice of grilled bread and cheese on each side (as nature intended)? It's two slices of bread of a difference. I used to make grilled cheese fried egg sandwiches. And have you tried Domino's cheesy bread sticks with garlic dipping sauce?

    I leave those things alone now, but I remember that life is delicious when you can actually hear your arteries slamming shut :lol:

    I'd love one! I'd probably ditch the fries and bun though.

    :eusa_eh: Bacon turtles? Yes I did miss that thread. Are we talking turtles like with caramel and pecans and chocolate and bacon?

    I'll go lookin' for it.

    Blech, too much.

    Our fast-food is an occasional pizze, hoagie or cheesesteak. I ate at a McD's once or twice and . . . how the hell people eat there or similar places on any type of regular/consistent basis is beyond my knowledge.

    Grilled cheese fried eggs sandwiches? OH do tell!
    I like making a fried egg sandwich from time to time, but I've never made one as part of or in addition to a grilled cheese sandwich.

    I prefer homemade burgers cooked over an open flame. Not too thick, but with a thick slice of American cheese, sauteed onions, mayo and maybe a squirt of ketchup.

    yes i do. friendly's used to sell a sandwich just like that and it was my favorite.

    2 grilled cheese sandwiches around a burger is a bit too much for me.
