According to the Guinness Book Of World Records the largest hamburger ever was created by the Black Bear Casino Resort in Minnesota in 2012 and weighed 2,014 pounds, was topped with 52.5 pounds of tomatoes, 50 pounds of lettuce, 27.22 pounds of onions, 8.62 pounds of pickles, 40 pounds of American cheese and 16.5 pounds of bacon. That’s crazy! Only 16.5 pounds of bacon! For shame! There should have been more bacon!
OK, they didn’t need more bacon.
However, whenever they trot out world records for things like “The World’s Largest Cheeseburger” I often wonder what they taste like? After hundreds of people got their grubby paws all over the meat, cheese, lettuce and tomato can your little chunk of burger really taste that good? Also; has anyone ever combined different world records? Like has anyone broken the record for the largest cheeseburger served to the largest gathering of naked people? I’m guessing that would violate a few health codes. However once you feast your eyes on these burger monstrosities you will soon realize that health is not a factor. Some of these just LOOK amazing. Some look like they fell out of the sky ala “Sunny With A Chance Of Meatballs.” Here now in no particular order is the largest gathering of large burgers that I have ever put together, which really doesn’t mean anything.
What’s the biggest burger you’ve ever eaten?
