777-Pound Burger Sets New Record for World's Largest Burger
Last Saturday, July 2, the Alameda County Fair in California was home to a Guinness World record breaking 777-pound burger, made by Ovation Food Services and Juicys Catering Services to beat the previous record holder, a 590-pound burger in Canada. The 777-pound burger featured 110 pounds of bun, 20 pounds of onions, 12 pounds of pickles, and 30 pounds of lettuce, for a total of about 1,375,000 calories. It took 13 hours for a 10-person crew to cook the burger. Inside Bay Area has photos of the burger being cooked and constructed.
Pieces of the burger were sold for 99¢, with proceeds going to the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
