Heart attack sandwich

In what seems like an example of unhealthy oneupmanship, burger chain Friendlys in the states has released this monstrosity, similair in craziness to the KFC double-down burger, mentioned here last month.  The filling is fairly standard.  One burger patty, albeit a large one, and the usual trimmings of tomato, lettuce and mayo.  However the 'bun' for this burger is what sets it apart - instead of a roll sliced in two (or even two slices of bread), this thing has what I guess you would call a grilled cheese sandwich on both the top and the bottom!


And the stats - a whopping 97g of saturated fat and 2090mg of salt.  I was amused to find a statement on Friendly's website saying that they are committed to 'healthy dining options in every restaurant'.  Check out the 'Grilled cheese burgermelt' here.
