Café Launches UK's Biggest English Breakfast With 17,000 Calories
| Last updated
A café has launched what's been dubbed the 'UK's biggest English breakfast', challenging hungry diners to a gut-busting meal that contains a whopping 17,000 calories.
The mammoth fry-up can be found at Shepards Place Farm in Doncaster, which has added the 'Terminator Armageddon' to its menus for anyone brave enough to try it.
The big breakfast is made up of 150 items, including 15 jumbo Lincolnshire sausages (the equivalent to 30 regular sausages), 15 rashers of bacon, 15 hash browns, 15 fried eggs, 15 slices of black pudding, 15 slices of toast and fried bread with butter, 15 portions of mushrooms, 15 portions of baked beans and 15 portions of tinned tomatoes.
It costs £50, but if customers are able to polish the entire thing off within the time limit, they'll get their money back.
Ted Phillips, owner of Shepards Place Farm, said: "The Terminator Armageddon is officially the biggest breakfast in the UK. I have already had messages from competitive eaters in the US who are desperate to get over and give the challenge their best shot.
"We just progressed our breakfast challenges until we got to where we are today.
"We are renowned for our breakfasts and we are proud to now be the home of the largest breakfast in the UK.
"I'd seen a few food challenges in the US and on programs such as Man VS Food but I thought that I hadn't seen many happening in this country so I started doing them.
"They are so popular with our customers and we have had people travel from all over the country to give our breakfast challenges ago, so I look forward to welcoming even more people to try out the new Terminator Armageddon challenge.
"It is absolutely massive and it was even hard for me to carry the tray over to the table as it was so heavy.
"It easily weighs between 15 to 20lbs.
"We use great quality ingredients in the challenges which I think also makes them such a huge success because people are genuinely enjoying what they are eating.
"In this new challenge, we use huge sausages which are double the size of the regular sausages that we use so it is the equivalent of 30 sausages.
"Along with 15 portions of each of the other breakfast items. It takes us about 20 minutes to cook because it is so big.
"To be honest I don't know how anyone will be able to finish this just for the sheer amount of sausages."
Phillips suggests that challenges like the Terminator Armageddon are a great way for friends to have some 'light-hearted fun', especially as we've been in a pandemic for well over a year.
He added: "I really enjoy hosting the challenges because I love seeing customers having a great time.
"And I think it is amazing that people travel from around the country to come and try it.
"It's great fun and a good laugh for everyone involved."
