Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
FRIED CHEESE MELT SANDWICH, DENNYS
Everyone loves a cheese sandwich especially one that is including melted cheese. Well, back in 2010, the fast food chain Dennys did an update of their menu and they added their very own version of a cheese melt sandwich to the menu.
In 2010, Denny’s updated their value menu with their very own melted cheese sandwich which you could purchase for $4. The sandwich was made up of four fried Mozzarella sticks which were then surrounded by melted American cheese in a sourdough toastie – how much more cheese could you ask for?
As well as the grilled cheese, it came with a side of fries and Mariana Sauce. The meal does however come with a negative – it is a whopping 895 calories. However if you add all the fries onto that as well it apparently goes up to 1220 calories!
The melted sandwich got a lot of mixed reviews with some people liking the crunch of the mozzarella sticks and some not being a fan of the American Cheese as it brought no flavour to the overall experience.
