Denny's Tops Burger With Mac & Cheese, World Ends

About a year ago, Denny's introduced the "Fried Cheese Melt," a grilled-cheese sandwich stuffed with fried mozzarella sticks. It had 895 calories and 34 grams of fat. Just looking at it caused Guy Fieri's prostate to explode.

Now, Denny's has topped itself with the new "Mac 'n Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt": a hamburger topped with melted cheddar cheese and mac & cheese (also: "zesty Frisco sauce").

But the nutritional information for this monstrosity includes the fries on the side. Still, we're going to assume that the burger accounts for most of the total: 1690 calories, 99 grams of fat and 36 grams of saturated fat.

Would Gut Check dare eat such a beast? Oh, you know it. Stay tuned.
