A chef has created Britain’s biggest burger – a whopping 25lb monster containing 25,000 CALORIES.
The massive snack nestles between two 20-inch buns crammed with 4lb of cheese, 20 sliced tomatoes and a pound of salad leaves.
It takes more than two hours to cook and is made with enough beef to make ONE HUNDRED quarter-pound burgers.
The burger contains 25,000 calories – a man’s daily allowance for TEN days and a woman’s for TWELVE.
It is too big for a conventional frying pan so chefs had to heat it in an oven before carefully carrying the gut-busting behemoth to a set of scales.
The unnamed mega-burger was created by chefs at JD’s Grill in Plymouth, Devon, to smash the previous British record of 24lbs.
Cafe owner Dave Cossar plans to chop it into sections to share it with customers rather than sell it as a whole burger.
He said: “It is a monster. It is not bulked up with anything. It is absolutely 100 per cent pure beef, with herbs and seasoning.”
Chef patron Justin Meaney and staff at the American-themed restaurant did a trial run a couple of weeks ago to make sure the mammoth meal was feasible.
It took two of them to carry the record-breaking burger from the kitchen to the restaurant.
The heaviest burger ever made weighed in at more than a TON at a casino in Minnesota, USA, last year.
