Guinness World Records 2009

Largest hamburger commercially available

Sizzling Swiss, Provolone, American and cheddar were anything but a “cheesy” finish to a Saturday afternoon at Mallie’s Sports Grill & Bar in Southgate, Michigan, USA: they were part of a record-setting ingredient list, perfectly prepared for a Guinness World Records™ largest hamburger commercially available victory.

Elements of the successful recipe

Weighing a few kilograms less than Guinness World Records Adjudicator Danny Girton Jr – who was verifying on site – the 90.72-kg (200-lb), 90% lean ground beef was carefully lifted by three men and placed into an oven, where it was baked at 121.11°C (250°F) for 15 hours.

The fully cooked beef patty, which weighed 84.14 kg (185.8 lb), was removed from the oven to cool, and methodically topped with three slices of bacon and one slice of cheese for every .01 kg (0.5 oz), as well as proportional amounts of locally available produce including lettuce, tomato, white onions and sliced dill pickles.

Capped with a 65.72-cm-wide (25.88-in) by 29.21-cm-tall (11.5-in) bun, the “Absolutely Ridiculous Burger”, as it is known on the restaurant’s menu, became the largest hamburger commercially available on the planet as of 30 May 2009!
