A CASINO in the US has cooked up the world’s biggest bacon cheeseburger.

The giant dish measured ten feet in diameter, weighing more than a tonne and was served up this weekend at the Black Bear Casino Resort near Carlton, Minnesota.

It tipped the scales at 2,014lb, making it far larger than the previous record holder at 881lb 13oz, the Duluth News Tribune reports. The burger included a whopping 60lb of meat, 50lb of lettuce, 50lb of sliced onions, 40lb of pickles and 40lb of cheese, containing a phenomenal 4.1 million calories. This is comparable to the average quarter-pounder bacon double cheeseburger from Burger King, which amounts to 580 calories in total.

Guinness Records representative Philip Robertson verified the biggest burger record, describing the feat as a result of ‘remarkable teamwork’, before adding that it ‘actually tastes really good’.                          –Metro
