Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut has always been a leader in stuffing more cheese into your pizza. First there was the famous Stuffed Crust, then the P'Sauna, which elevated your body temperature so you could achieve full cheese supersaturation.

NPR

Compared to the turkey sandwich, or the Reuben, or the grilled cheese, the meatloaf sandwich is an all-too-often overlooked volume in the American Library of Great Sandwiches. (I freely admit the American Library of Great Sandwiches was a terrible idea — no one wants a sandwich after it's been returned, and I'll be returning your Kickstarter money ASAP.)
